Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi in Vietnam has debuted an events initiative this month as part of its $20m refurb.

The Legendary Events programme - which employs two dedicated staff - is aimed at the meetings, incentives, conferences and events market.

"Meetings in hotels can all too often be merely functional," said general manager Kai Speth. "But there's no reason they cannot be functional, memorable and stylish in a destination as remarkable as Hanoi."
 
Off-site, Legendary Events can take delegates to Hanoi's landmarks including the 1926-built History Museum, the 930-year-old Temple of Literature, and on golf outings.
 
The hotel's director of sales and marketing Andrew Hartley added: "Reducing the event organiser's stress level is at the heart and soul of this new Legendary Events concept. Our planner and concierge will organise, execute and follow a particular event from beginning to end."
