ENOCH, AB--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2014) - Meeting planners have always had plenty of reasons to book conferences at the Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort. The four-star luxury property combines 35,000 square feet of event space with lavish amenities, a Vegas-style casino and a location just 20 minutes away from the airport. But there's a new reason to consider this expansive property for your next meeting, and it involves the tech world's most famous fruit. As part of its iPad Promotion, the hotel is giving meeting planners complimentary iPad Minis just for booking these premier meeting rooms in Edmonton.

Eligible meeting planners who book 75 cumulative rooms over select value dates will receive more than just an iPad Mini, however. They'll also receive the next level of customer service. That's because the iPad, like any tablet or smartphone, allows planners to access Marriott's latest Meeting Services App to ensure their meeting at this Edmonton conference hotel is as seamless as it is memorable.

The Marriott Meeting Services App lets meeting planners connect with one of the hotel's award-winning event planners in real time. So last-minute changes can be handled immediately, and requests made while a meeting is in progress -- for more coffee, additional chairs, a thermostat change or anything else -- can be handled without the meeting planner ever leaving their seat.

In addition, meeting planners can look forward to gathering within some of the finest meeting rooms in Edmonton. The hotel offers a choice of 16 distinctive spaces, from the 7,000-square-foot Enoch Grand Ballroom, to the elegantly streamlined Chiefs Boardroom, thereby ensuring that there's room for every group. After hours, delegates can stay on task at the hotel's full-service business centre. And the hotel's state-of-the-art A/V equipment, custom event menus and dedicated events team all translate to meetings that are as unique as they are productive.

Even those who are unable to accept an iPad Mini can still benefit from what is one of the most exciting hotel deals in Edmonton. That's because Marriott will program the device with educational games and then donate it in the planner's name to Children's National Medical Center.
