With some companies permanently shifting to remote workforces and offices reducing their capacity to meet social distancing guidelines, meeting space may be at a premium as we start meeting face to face. At the same time, hotels are experiencing unprecedented vacancy rates. American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) has addressed these two trends in its Workspaces offering on GBT’s Meetings Express platform.
Available spaces for daytime bookings of up to 10 people include meeting venues, co-working spaces, guestrooms with desks, converted suites and small hotel meeting rooms.
Workspaces is currently available in North America—with 500 Canadian venues—and GBT’s partners include Hyatt, Radisson, boutique hotels, and co-working venues that range from industrial spaces to shared offices, such as Workplace One locations in Toronto.
There are no additional transaction fees on top of the cost of the meeting space and any amenities that are not included.
Workspaces offers solutions for a variety of meeting needs, says Patrick Doyle, vice-president and general manager of AmexGBT Canada, who spoke to Ignite from a deluxe room that’s been converted into a workspace at the Hyatt Regency Toronto. “Workspaces is a great option if you have a leadership team that wants to have three or four people together to do some brainstorming or if you're working on an acquisition and you want to have a face-to-face in a safe clean environment,” he says, adding that all partners must meet hygiene and safety standards.
