USA, McLean, Virginia. January 29, 2019

Hilton's (NYSE: HLT) lifestyle brand Canopy by Hilton today announced the recent opening opening of its first hotel in Asia Pacific, Canopy by Hilton Chengdu City Centre. Located next to Tianfu Square, the commercial and historical heart of Chengdu, Canopy Chengdu City Centre welcomes guests with a positive stay and provides a truly immersive, locally-inspired experience. The property is owned by Leading Group and managed by Hilton.

The 150*room hotel is located in the heart of Chengdu's most popular dining and nightlife corridor, allowing guests to explore Sichuan opera houses, night markets and other exciting sights with ease. The hotel is also within walking distance to some of the city's finest cultural sites, including Chengdu Museum, Peoples Park, the Qingyang Taoist Temple, Kuanzhai Lane and Wenshu Monastery, the largest monastery in Chengdu.

“We are thrilled to introduce Canopy by Hilton to Chengdu, Hilton's first lifestyle offering of its kind in the entire Asia Pacific region. As part of China's Go West policy, Chengdu has quickly become famed as an international center of culture and cuisine, with unique nooks to explore, like historic alleyways transformed into destinations for art, shopping and dining,” said Qian Jin, area President, Greater China and Mongolia, Hilton. “This is a testament of Hilton's commitment to maintain strong growth in China and we look forward to bringing positive hospitality experiences to more of China's travelers.”

“Every detail of our first Canopy in Asia Pacific embodies the east-meets-west concept that is the hallmark of Chengdu's culture, from dining options, energizing interiors to our friendly hotel Enthusiasts,” said Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton. “We look forward to delivering a positive stay and experience to our guests and neighbors, all starting with delightful extras like a locally inspired welcome gift.”

Hotel Group Meetings: Uncommon Destinations

The last few years have been good to the Hotel Group Meetings industry and that trend is expected to continue into 2019. Planners are brimming with confidence due to an expanding economy and increased job creation, which typically results in a boost in corporate meetings. Given this promising outlook, planners are trying to outdo themselves to satisfy the high expectations of their clients. One notable trend is to integrate unusual settings into the meeting experience, hosting groups at local zoos, aquariums, museums, event centers, or other outdoor facilities. The goal is to embrace uncommon destinations, rather than a typical hotel conference room, so that meetings can be memorable, unique and stimulating. This is also part of another trend which is to support all things local - from hosting events at landmark city venues; to catering through local restaurants, food trucks and microbreweries; to hosting off-site excursions like agri-tours, athletic events or scenic 5k routes. However, though the setting might be spectacular, there are still some bedrock components that must be provided to ensure a successful meeting. Free, high-speed Wi-Fi is still one of the most requested services. Planners have to make sure that a comprehensive communication infrastructure is in place so clients can easily connect - and stay connected - to the network throughout the entire meeting experience. Also, technology tools can be used to streamline the booking, registration, and check-in process, and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) materials can be utilized to ensure seamless access to conference events. There are also numerous software tools that encourage audience participation, as well as integrating polls, Q&A, surveys and games into speakers' presentations. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group meetings and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
