Planning Schedule

Sonesta Hotel, Tower & Casino Cairo encourages planners to outline a preliminary program at the initial contract signing phase. Upon receipt of said contract, our Catering & Conference Management Department will send a letter of introduction to the appropriate party providing contact information and a detailed description of our services.

We invite the planner to contact the hotel at any time prior to arrival. Our conference service department will make an initial telephone call approximately 60 days prior to the group's arrival. At that time, discussion will commence on a specific itinerary of activities and locations of meetings and functions.

Once the hotel receives a tentative itinerary, we will send a preliminary group agenda of the program. A copy of this program will be provided to all hotel departments. Final itinerary will be completed 20 days prior to arrival, so that it may be reviewed at the hotel's weekly staff meeting.


Pre-Convention and Post-Meeting Review

Group meeting planners are requested to meet with the Director of Catering & Conference Management prior to the arrival of the group to review all final arrangements. We recommend scheduling a pre-conference department head meeting with planners of groups exceeding 100 rooms. A post-event meeting is always requested at the convenience of the meeting planner, to review any comments regarding the hotel's performance.
