and 3 Reflags in Asia Pacific
|SINGAPORE (June 18, 2003) -- The tourism industry
may be reeling from the double blow of SARS and war, but the slump has
not stopped the world’s most well-known hotel brand, Hilton, from being
confident about the future.
Hilton will also continue to expand its leisure offerings in the Asia Pacific as part of its strategy to establish a network of resorts that comprise 20 percent of all Hilton properties by 2010.
“We are investing a lot of resources to develop our Hilton Worldwide Resorts portfolio, with plans confirmed for seven new Hilton Resorts in the South Pacific region. These are located in some of the world’s most exotic locations and will benefit from long-term growth in tourism.”
Hilton International, an operating division of UK-based Hilton Group plc, operates more than 400 hotels, resorts and vacation ownership properties in over 70 countries worldwide. With more than 65,000 associates ready to serve the world’s travellers, Hilton International’s portfolio includes 250 Hilton hotels and resorts around the world (excluding the U.S., Canada and Mexico); Conrad, a luxury hotel brand in some of the world’s most exclusive destinations; and the highly regarded Scandic mid-market hotel product.
A global marketing alliance between Hilton International and North American-based Hilton Hotels Corporation extends the number of hotels owned, operated and/or franchised by both companies to more than 2,400 properties across nine well-respected hotel products.
