Following the launch of Hilton’s Sustainability MICE Series in 2022 which focused on food sustainability, Hilton hosted the second installation of the series titled: “The Heart of Hospitality: Wellness”.
Over two days, delegates from the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Events) industry experienced an immersive wellness journey at the DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside. The showcase featured a thoughtfully curated selection of workshops focused on the "body, mind, and spirit". Attendees were able to indulge in everything from healthy food choices to breathwork and in-room experiences.
The event also reinforced Hilton’s ‘Travel with Purpose’ Program, which offers meeting planners tools to make a big impression with attendees while making a better impact on the world. It demonstrated that infusing wellness into MICE events creates deeper connections and impactful takeaways.
"As with every Hilton brand, we design each hotel with several options for our MICE customers, paired with Hilton’s responsible hospitality at the highest standards. As hoteliers, we have always recognised the value wellness brings to individuals,” expressed Leo Lee, National Director of Sales, Hilton Malaysia. "With recent world events, now more than ever, elements of body, mind and spirit are necessities, not luxury. Through this showcase, we are delighted to be leading the way in delivering exceptional guest experiences."
Invited coaches led sessions to connect delegates with their inner selves. Hansen Lee conducted a stress-reducing breathwork and movement exercise to invigorate the body post lunchtime, as well as a sunrise yoga session at the property’s Borneo Courtyard. Alex Tan taught a tool called 'Disruptive Thinking' to motivate participants to be their best selves.
Eugenie Chan, a certified coach in the scientifically-verified branding tool 23plusone, led a purpose-finding workshop. Coach Sarah Lian provided a sound healing experience. Sustainable, local produce was served during breaks and main meals, and the DoubleTree spa provider, Mandara Spa, gave 15-minute massages.
