Hyatt Regency Trinidad Raising the Bar for Convention Facilities

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – After successfully hosting 34 Heads of State, including U.S. President Barack Obama, for the 5th Summit of the Americas this past April, Hyatt Regency Trinidad is gearing up to host Queen Elizabeth II and the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting this November.

Preparations for an international conclave of this magnitude can take up to two years and are considered by many to be a once-in-a-lifetime event. Having just opened in January 2008, Hyatt Regency Trinidad, the first hotel in the Caribbean designed specifically for business and meetings, will have hosted not one but two major policy-setting forums with many of the world’s most powerful leaders in attendance before it celebrates its second anniversary.

With an expert team of conference coordinators, food and beverage managers, entertainment and event planners, the Hyatt Regency can tailor a gathering for 25 to 2,500 persons. More than 43,000 square feet of versatile function space is available from small breakout rooms to two ballrooms, one the spectacular 16,000 square feet Regency Ballroom. Plus, the latest innovations in meetings technology, audio/visual services and translation facilities effectively combine advanced business service and amenities with cross-cultural communication.

Even world leaders like to be pampered and the Hyatt Regency Trinidad offers the finest upscale accommodations with more executive suite options than any other hotel in Port of Spain. An infinity pool overlooking the Gulf of Paria and an outdoor lounge space with ultra-chic settees offer tranquil relaxation and the stunning Spa Esencia – the first Hyatt Pure Spa to debut in the Caribbean – infuses native Trinidad culture and elements with luxurious treatments.

“We are the premier meetings and convention facility in the Caribbean,” notes General Manager Russell George, “But our philosophy will never be ‘business as usual’. Every meeting planner and every guest at the hotel whether attending a world forum or a small to mid-sized corporate retreat, will receive the same superior service and attention to detail that Hyatt is known for around the globe.”
