Meeting organisers who plan an event in the Engadin find not only superb facilities but also an impressive setting, far removed from daily routine: perfect for creative thinking and post-work leisure.
The best ideas arrive, as everyone knows, when you least expect them: under the shower, just before falling asleep, while jogging… To have new, innovative ideas, a change of scenery works wonders.
The change of scenery already begins with the journey. On the Rhaetian Railway (RhB), organisers can hire rolling meeting rooms in which event participants already tackle the main themes as they glide smoothly towards the Engadin.
The RhB’s rolling InnoTren, for example, has everything you would expect to find in a meeting room – from a long table to a screen, whiteboard and coffee machine. It also offers large windows for sweeping views of the magnificent landscape as the train travels along the UNESCO World Heritage line into the Engadin. If organisers also book a meal in the “Stiva Retica” dining car, panelled in pine, they may also wish to add a detour via Tirano: participants will not want to leave this train in a hurry.
Within the Engadin, organisers find countless facilities and options for meetings of 2 to 400 participants. The atmosphere is sure to be relaxed: far removed from daily routine, minds are liberated, inspired by the fresh air under the Engadin sun.
For larger events, the conference and cultural centre of the Hotel Saratz in Pontresina – the highest-altitude conference centre in Europe – offers all the facilities organisers could wish for. It also lies not far from the Roseg and Morteratsch glaciers, so that a successful meeting can be crowned with spectacular break-out sessions and views.
To ensure minds stay creative, boosts of new energy are provided during breaks in the form of delicious cuisine. The region’s meeting locations offer exquisite specialities from the valley or any other catering according to the wishes of organisers – from breakfasts and standing lunches to well-deserved evening drinks followed by dinner in an informal atmosphere.
