Accor announced a collaboration with Microsoft to launch All Connect, a hybrid meetings concept supported by Microsoft Teams. The concept, according to an announcement, will enable guests around the world “to adapt to the new ways of working that are expected to be an enduring legacy of the COVID-19 pandemic.” Today, 55% of Accor hotels with meeting rooms are already providing hybrid meetings solutions to their clients. With the introduction of All Connect, Accor’s target is to have all its hotels with meeting rooms in compliance with a new standard for hybrid meetings by 2022 across all brands from economy to luxury. The offering will enable corporate customers and meeting planners to combine physical in-hotel meetings with virtual interactions across multiple locations simultaneously. For hotels not already equipped for hybrid meetings, it will allow attendees to connect and engage virtually on the Microsoft Teams platform. In select Accor meeting spaces, Microsoft Teams Rooms and Surface Hub 2S will connect people on-site to those joining remotely with audio and video device experiences.  The concept will focus primarily on small meetings (8 to 50 physical participants), though options are also available for larger meetings and events.
