Maybe you are already aware of Slovakia and its many possibilities for MICE, maybe not. If not, then it’s about time, as the East European country is a great place for meetings, events and incentives and this due to many reasons:

These are among others warm and welcoming people, good value for money, easy accessibility, innovation and excellence in execution, outstanding venues and hotels with highly qualified staff. Moreover, Slovakia is one of the safest countries in Europe – an absolutely decisive factor nowadays.

So, which are the hotels where you can hold your conference or meeting? One, which you should definitely put into consideration, is the Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras. It is located on the shore of the glacial mountain lake Strbske pleso, with a view to the majestic panorama of the High Tatras peaks.

But why hold a meeting in a relatively remote hotel? People are busy all the time, they are under pressure in the working sphere and stress often dominates daily life. So it is not a surprise that a meeting out of the rush of a city is something many people look for. That is where Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras comes into play as it is an exclusive hideaway with breathtaking views over a picturesque lake and mountains behind. The hotel is considered to be the leader in Slovakia’s luxury hotel market, which combines traditional values with modern service, exclusivity and understated luxury.

The hotel is perfectly suitable for MICE as it offers several meeting rooms: The Gerlach Ballroom (for up to 150 guests), the Krivan Ballroom (up to 80 guests), the Grand Restaurant (up to 200 guests), the View Tower (up to 4 guests) and Lobby Lounge and Bar (up to 100 guests). In the Ballrooms you can feel the magnificence of the past combined with state-of-the-art amenities and services of the present: high ceilings, an open fireplace or terrace, natural daylight and breath-taking views of Štrbské Pleso and the Tatras Mountains.

It’s a perfect place for weddings, corporate functions, meetings, private parties and receptions. The Grand Restaurant is particularly suitable for gala dinners, parties, concerts or weddings, the Lobby Lounge and Bar for cocktails, parties or networking activities and the View Tower for an exclusive candlelight dinner. As you can see the possibilities are limitless.
