MONTREAL, November 5, 2020 – W Montreal has teamed up with W Toronto, hitting the scene March 2021, to introduce W X W MEETINGS, a new way for companies to stay engaged and connected with confidence. The concept is simple: two cities, two hotels, one meeting.

W x W MEETINGS shows that no matter the current travel and meeting restrictions, businesses can still plug-in and get business done, but can also un-plug when it’s time to have fun.

The first of its kind, W x W MEETINGS give businesses the opportunity to reimagine cross-office communications allowing teams to connect simultaneously both in person and remotely. Designed with simplicity and safety in mind, a W Meeting Specialist will help planners organize, execute and host small in-person groups that are mirrored in each city. The hotel will ensure appropriate health and safety protocols and guidelines are met while bringing the spirit of in-person collaboration back to the business meeting experience.

With one single bilingual point of contact, one contract, one set of event orders, and one billing, W x W MEETINGS is a simplified multi-hotel meeting solution that makes the task attractively easy. Three packages are offered that cater to various budgets. The basic package starting at $85/pp includes a private workspace, lunch and two break snacks while the $105/pp and $130/pp formats also include breakfast options. Meeting room rental fees are included in the per person price and customizable add-ons are available based on needs. In true W Hotel fashion, a cocktail created by the Living Room Mixologist is also available at $15/person.

With the highly anticipated opening of the W Toronto slated for March 2021, teams will be able to connect with their colleagues at the W Montreal starting early next year. Furthermore, both W locations have partnered with JW Marriott Parq Vancouver to offer the experience to teams with offices on the West Coast.

“We’ve created a very unique concept to fulfill a need that COVID-19 brought upon the meeting and events community”, says Alexandre Tessier, Director of Sales and Marketing, W Montreal. “Business units are looking for alternative meeting options for small groups, while limiting travel and ensuring heightened safety measures are in place. We took the opportunity to showcase our expertise in hospitality to design a collaborative work environment that integrates digital tools. Our mission is to offer an experience that is both simple and comprehensive so that teams are not only connected, but also engaged.”

While virtual meetings from home have become the norm, the teams at W Montreal and W Toronto are confident this innovative alternative offers the “best of both worlds”, reconnecting multi-office teams and breathing new life into the virtual work experience.
