Award Contract to HMC
.
NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA – December 12, 2003 – HMC (Hospitality Marketing Concepts), the leading solution provider of loyalty membership programs has been awarded the much sought-after contract for “Feed at Raffles”.

Rudyard Kipling, the 1907 Nobel Literary Prize winner who wrote The Jungle Books amongst many other notable achievements, recommended travelers to take note that when in Singapore, “Feed at Raffles”.  This quote from his travel journal From Sea to Sea Vol. V has since been adopted as namesake for an elite dining club encompassing 39 restaurants and bars at Raffles Hotel, Raffles The Plaza, Swissôtel The Stamford, Equinox Complex and Swissôtel Merchant Court in Singapore.  The new contract between Raffles International and HMC will see Feed at Raffles expand worldwide to all Raffles locations.

T. Markland Blaiklock, Managing Director of Raffles Hotels & Resorts, commented on the selection of HMC for Feed at Raffles, “We were looking for a partner who share our vision in customer service, and who has both the infrastructure and the commitment to deliver.  HMC is certainly heads above the rest on all aspects.  The consistency in service quality and professionalism throughout its organization is tremendous.”

“We are thrilled to be working with Raffles International,” said Mokhtar Ramadan, CEO of HMC.  “Feed at Raffles has tremendous potential and we look forward to taking it to new heights.  Needless to say, our latest release of ClubCentral 3.0 will play a key role in bringing the world of new technology and Raffles’ customer service traditions to a seamless union.”

HMC will be re-launching Feed at Raffles in the new year with an even more prestigious membership level with enhanced benefits.  Plans are also on the way to roll out the program at the remaining Raffles properties around the world in the very near future, and a similar product for Swissôtel properties is in the works.
