Meetings, presentations, receptions, galas and special occasions are all about communication. From amplifying the human voice to providing a romantic soundtrack to underscore precious moments, Fairmont understands the key role that technology plays in communication.

To better meet our guests’ technology needs, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has partnered with Encore, the certified leader in the conference service field, to offer the finest technology, creative expertise and quality assurance necessary to take your meetings to the next level.

Exclusive to Fairmont, Encore offers Event Technology Concierge Service, which brings a new level of technical coordination and expertise. This service ensures continuity and consistency – from initial planning to execution to closure – through a single point of contact for bright ideas, smart technology and successful meeting solutions.

These group wellness classes are designed to uplift and re-energize your team, whether its a hike through the Berkeley hills or a focused breathing exercise to help you get focused. Our goal is to encourage attendees to continue these practices beyond the meeting room and into their everyday lives.

Tantalize your taste buds with an array of culinary challenges. Put your palate to the test with a blind wine tasting, or get those creative juices flowing with Restaurant Wars. Think you have what it takes to craft the next great cocktail? Let’s see what you’ve got!
