LOS ANGELES -- The Regal Biltmore Hotel, a meetings property here,
rolled out Biltmore Express Meetings, a program aimed at planners
who specialize in smaller meetings with shorter lead times.
The program is designed to be a one-stop shop for planners,
offering customized packages, according to Peter Rockwood, director
of sales and marketing at the Regal Biltmore Hotel.
"This is a major step for the Regal Biltmore toward meeting our
diverse planners' needs," Rockwood said. "Express Meetings saves
time and money through efficient allocation of services."
Services available include guest-room reservations, catering,
audiovisual services, a full-service business center with
high-speed Internet access and video conferencing, valet and self
parking, billing and payment plans, promotional tie ins with the
hotel and its restaurants, and any other requests the client may
have, Rockwood said.
The Regal Biltmore has more than 70,000 square feet of meeting
space, with 16 separate convention and banquet rooms. Those spaces
include the 16,800-square-foot Biltmore Bowl that can accommodate
1,000 and the 6,000-square-foot Crystal Ball Room, which seats 600
Another benefit for planners, according to Rockwood, is the
ability to work with Brian Lagarce, the newly appointed corporate
sales specialists at the property. Lagarce will assist planners and
coordinate the details of the event. He has served as catering
manager at the Regal Biltmore since 1996, where he covered all
aspects of event and meeting planning.
