Pullman Luang Prabang recently hosted its inaugural MICE Meeting Showcase 2019, inviting industry professionals and members of the media to discover how it can facilitate MICE experience for all types of group.


At the event, guests were treated to a traditional Lao dance performance, a local cooking show by the resort's Chef Sith, a 'Mix It Up' bartender show, as well as a yoga class. Themed breaks embraced the natural ambience of Luang Prabang, including a fresh tropical fruit stand, an organic juice bar, a freshly baked bread stall and healthy homemade cuisine.

"With our spectacular natural scenery, surrounded by verdant forests and rice paddies, Pullman Luang Prabang creates a captivating venue for corporate events. But no matter how attractive the destination, delegates will never be motivated if they spend too long stuck in a gloomy meeting room. That's why we want to let meeting planners break down the boundaries and create events that showcase the beauty and culture of the destination," said Denis Dupart, the resort's general manager.

In terms of meeting spaces, Pullman Luang Prabang can host up to 300 delegates between its function spaces, the main Nam Khong Ballroom, the 116sqm Nam Khan meeting room, as well as the Le Salon boardroom.

There are activities to be had in and around Luang Prabang for MICE attendees as well, such as teeing off at the nearby Luang Prabang Golf Club, as well as outdoor adventures at Nahm Dong Park. There are also visits to responsible enterprises, such as the women's textile collective Ock Pop Tok, the Laos Buffalo Dairy Farm, Mandalao Elephant Conservation Camp, Saffron Coffee, Heuan Chan Heritage House, and Luang Prabang's Traditional Arts & Ethnology Centre.
