BANDUNG, Indonesia - Leading Indonesian hotel Hilton Bandung is raising the bar for business events with the launch of Panorama, a multi-purpose integrated rooftop event space that offers corporate planners the opportunity to convene in the cool "hill-station" climate of the picturesque destination.

Located a two-hour drive from Jakarta - or equally accessed via an elegant train ride through the mountains, a new arrival format that can be customized to all corporate needs by the creative team at the property - Hilton Bandung is really putting down a marker with the innovative hardware in the popular business events destination.

Panorama combines an open-air area consisting of the outdoor Fresco restaurant featuring an open kitchen concept, next to which is a spacious and elegant 181 square meter indoor meeting room featuring contemporary design with floor-to-ceiling glass sides, overlooking the expansive swimming pool, which also offers meeting planners "in the pool" long table meetings and dining options.

All three spaces can be combined or offered as individual areas in a flexible and integrated space concept that provide the sophistication and high standards of a Hilton meeting experience while at the same time providing a unique destination for executive and special interest groups.

Hilton Bandung General Manager Scott Wilson said, "The hotel built up a strong reputation for exceeding guests' needs with style and dynamism, and with the launch of Panorama, the bar will be raised further by offering new levels of flexibility, originality, personalization and privacy for meeting and special event planners."

"We have built the foundations since we launched, and our reputation has grown as the leading medium-sized meeting property in Bandung. Now with the opening of our new integrated rooftop space, we are able to leverage our reputation for excellence and take Hilton Bandung to a new level. It is a space where incentive, meetings and special events groups can also enjoy the open air environment and really take advantage of the pleasant climate courtesy of our elevated location, which is now married with our modern and integrated events space concept," Wilson said.

Alongside Panorama, corporate groups can discover a customizable program of experiences and activities recently launched at Hilton Bandung that embrace the destination for the first time. These include: Perfect Balance Meetings, offering adrenaline-charged zip-line flights, obstacle courses, tests of strength and gravity-defying Tarzan leaps through the lush rainforest and cool dense woodlands of Bandung, and Exquisite Meetings packages where a whole train carriage can be privately hired for delegates to start their meetings early and enjoy the mountainous views as the train approaches the cool hill station destination, with service and catering provided by Hilton Bandung.

All corporate meetings at Hilton Bandung have been conscientiously created to utilize the high-quality facilities and amenities of the hotel itself, the best attractions the destination has to offer, and the added incentive of the Hilton best-in-class carbon offset program. Wilson said, "MICE functions can be turned into 'meetings with meaning' rather than just self-serving corporate trips and this allows groups to give back even as they get together. Meetings at Hilton Bandung can be up to 100 percent carbon neutral."

Wilson added, "Hilton Bandung's Meetings Promise is a further seal of quality and reassurance for MICE planners. We understand that event planning can be stressful. Get in touch with Hilton and we will respond promptly. Other benefits include a single point of contact for seamless communications, dedicated meetings and AV teams who are fully briefed and up to speed at all times and flexible program timing."

Including Panorama, Hilton Bandung offers a selection of 13 contemporary adaptable meeting rooms including the pillar less ballroom, each filled with floor to ceiling natural daylight, latest technology requirements and supported by a full range of unique services.
