Hilton Worldwide Asia Pacific
2011 is going to be a key year where Hilton Worldwide will continue to experience significant growth. The recovery of corporate travel will lead its sales force to continue developing relationships while ensuring that rates reflect the expected higher occupancy levels.
In strengthening the presence of the Hilton brand throughout Asia Pacific, the group has just introduced luxury brands, Waldorf Astoria and Conrad, in the Chinese market at the end of 2010 and are looking forward to welcoming award winning brands in new destinations: Hampton by Hilton in India and Hilton Garden inn in China.
Philippe Garnier, Vice President (Sales and Regional Marketing), has been in Singapore for 18 months with his family and was working previously for Hilton Worldwide based in the UK.
