Dusit Thani, Abu Dhabi, one of their 5 Star hotels in the UAE, hosts various VIP customers who recurrently make reservations for their meeting rooms. They needed an upgrade to their meeting rooms by redesigning the interiors with premium and stylish look, and to ensure their customers have the best technology available to them to lead a productive and successful meeting. Moreover, they wanted to create a Wireless and Hassle Free Meeting Room which was easier to manage and setup.
BenQ’s first interaction with Dusit Thani, Abu Dhabi, was during BETT 2017, which was held in their ballroom, and our team gave a demo of the Interactive Flat Panels to the IT Manager who was fascinated by the technology. After the event, the hotel management had started to realize what they’re missing out and initiated their plans for renovating their meeting rooms. A year later, they approached BenQ.

"With the proliferation of BYOD, presentations and meetings today are originating from a diverse range of devices. And in order to meet our client’s expectations we decided to also incorporate BenQ’s WDC10 InstaShow while keeping pace with connectivity standards for a truly intuitive and streamlined collaboration experience."
Situated in close proximity to Abu Dhabi’s most famous football stadium, Al Jazira Sports Stadium, it attracts a lot of football teams to stay in the hotel. There are also football coaches who live in the Club Suites and often like to host training for the teams in their suite. BenQ’s RP8601K Interactive Flat Panel is favored by the coaches especially since it has a set template of a football field, which the coaches use to train the players.
According to the IT Admin, the football coaches specifically request for the BenQ Interactive Panels to be delivered to their suite on several occasions which is why they always have one of the panels on a Trolley Stand to easily transport it to their rooms.
While the hotels meeting rooms have fixed Interactive Flat Panels, they also cater to various other client requests who require Bigger Screen Size, and the hotel sets up BenQ’s LH890UST Ultra Short Throw Laser Projector in such cases. Where in the past they had to have VGA or HDMI Cables running across the room to connect the projector to the client’s laptops, today, the meeting rooms are equipped with BenQ WDC10 InstaShow and clients can now share their presentations with ease and wirelessly. They soon plan to install a large white board and mount the LH890UST in the ceiling to offer an Interactive Solution on a large screen using the Ultra Short Throw Projector.
BenQ’s BlueCore laser projectors provide pristine image quality and amazing flexibility, while InstaShow makes meetings smoother than ever. For companies that are considering a meeting-room makeover but don’t know where to begin, the team at Dusit Thani recommends reaching out to BenQ and its first-rate support team.
