With the school season in full swing, we at the Four Points by Sheraton Norwood want to say ‘Thank You’ to all teachers today and every day for their tireless efforts in education! And, while our educators dedicate their lives to teaching others, they are also expected to educate themselves on the ever-changing curriculum, the latest innovations and the new teacher training strategies.
A teacher training day is a great opportunity for teachers to learn and share best practices, get advice from each other, and be brought up to date on the latest school district policies. Getting teachers out of the school environment and into a separate venue can be a great way to hear new ideas, meet new people and refuel energy and motivation. Of course, with the current coronavirus pandemic, selecting a venue can be a little complicated, but the main thing to keep in mind is selecting one with sufficient room for maintaining social distance. Other considerations include location, parking, and access to food and refreshments on-site.
The Four Points by Sheraton Norwood is very familiar with hosting our teachers, whether it is for teacher training, school accreditations or even student testing sites. We host some of the largest educator conferences in Massachusetts, with over 500 teachers convening at our facility on a yearly basis. We are located right off Route 1 in Norwood, close to Routes 495, 95 and 93. The MBTA is also close by, allowing traveler’s easy access to our hotel and conference center. And, since we understand that not all travel is easy, staying at our hotel overnight is! We provide all the amenities to make you and your attendees feel right at home.
Our newly renovated conference center at the Four Points by Sheraton Norwood boasts over 40,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space which can accommodate anything from small corporate meetings to large banquets, weddings, and everything in-between! We understand that the education provided to teachers during these meetings is crucial, and due to the flexibility of our conference center, a large conference of 500 attendees can easily transform into smaller more intimate sessions featuring our multiple breakout rooms. To make further use of our facility, options to set up vendor displays in our Foyer/Terrace Area is a great way to bring new innovations and ideas directly to your attendees.
We are a founding member of the International Association of Conferences Centers (IACC). We take pride in following the standards and best practices of this community by offering state of the art audiovisual technology, comfortable ergonomic chairs, high-speed wireless internet access and non-glare lighting that will keep attendees comfortable, focused, and ready to learn! We offer passion, innovation and a high-quality of service to assist in making your event a success!
We also offer most of our meeting amenities in a flat per person package rate to include: Main Conference Room, High-Powered Standard AV, Complimentary High-Speed Internet, Continuous Coffee Breaks, Luncheon Buffet, Technical and Conference Assistance and Complimentary Parking. Planning an event takes a lot of work; and we at the Four Points by Sheraton Norwood are here to make the process as easy as possible.
