“The hotel can host large events thanks to its sheltered patio, its 11 tailorable meeting rooms and its huge auditorium, which seats 410.
Its integrated control room allows it to transform itself into a veritable theater or cinema. This room alone accounts for five to ten percent of the hotel’s turnover.
An exceptional playground for the hotel’s special events manager. In any case, that’s something I’d really like to do!”
Marie-Vincente Paquet uses three words to describe this visit:
“Beyond large events that our hotel can host, I especially think about the client diversity that this represents: from a work council up until a manade* without forgetting fashion parades or birthday dinners, working in the Novotel Atria seems to be very enriching through all the different people you can meet.
I’m really curious and naturally open to others. I love meeting people from different cultures, professions and different social environments. I would be thrilled to work in this hotel’s special events department.”
Thomas Medard identifies the three strengths of the hotel:
Personally, when I think about the tour, I’d see myself as the Restaurant Manager in the Food & Beverages department.
The three words Belefkih Othmane had to describe the tour:
*manade: don’t think that it was just another typical expression from the Camargue region that Thomas used to designate a group of people, taking its roots in a herd of cattle. The Novotel Atria actually did host a complete manade of several bulls and had several tons of sand delivered to imitate the atmosphere of the Nimes Arenas.
