Hinckley Event Planning
When you decide to host an event at Grand Casino, your initial contact will be with a Business Account Executive. He or she will help make all your meeting and hotel room reservations, coordinate special needs, plan recreational activities, settle terms and conditions, and make payment arrangements. If you have any issues with scheduling your event, need to cancel, or have hotel room issues, your Business Account Executive will be the point of contact.
A Banquet Coordinator will be assigned to your event to help with all on-site details, including meeting times, room setup, audio-visual needs, and food and beverage requests. He or she will contact you approximately thirty days prior to your arrival date to review and finalize plans for your event. The more information you provide us, the better we will be able to prepare and plan the service aspects of your event.
