Kerry Hotel Pudong To Renews IT&CM China Sponsorship

travel_index_1070Singapore (Singapore) – August 16, 2013 – Following this year’s success of hosting over 880 international MICE delegates at the IT&CM China Opening Ceremony & Welcome Dinner, Kerry Hotel Pudong Shanghai has committed to hosting the same event once again in 2014. It has also confirmed its re-appointment as one of the event’s official hotels, and will double its hosting of IT&CM China buyers.

Peter Clarke, General Manager of Kerry Hotel Pudong remarked, “Being the Opening Ceremony & Welcome Dinner host as well as Official Hotel to IT&CM China delegates provides another dimension for the Kerry Hotel Pudong to showcase its offering. The delegates’ own personal experience with us brings across a much more credible message to the clients.”

He added, “Supporting a respected and credible industry event like IT&CM China is the perfect opportunity to showcase the hotel to both national and international media and buyers. We believe our participation creates exposure and awareness of the Kerry Hotel brand, as well as awareness of Shanghai the destination. This is vital for the successful growth of the MICE market. We certainly had a successful outing in 2013, and it is important for Kerry Hotel to continue promoting both the Kerry brand and the hotel facilities. We are thus delighted to re-new our participation as hosts for the 2014 event.”

Darren Ng, Managing Director of TTG Asia Media said, “We are very pleased to collaborate with Kerry Hotel Pudong once again for IT&CM China. The accolades won by this award-winning establishment by the Shangri-La group validates the hotel’s efforts in their continuous improvement of their Total Guest Experience. Our IT&CM China delegates can look forward to and be assured of the quality experience they will receive at Kerry Hotel Pudong.”

IT&CM China 2014 will be held from April 15 to 17 at Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center. This is the 8th instalment of the international MICE event that seeks to “Promote China to the World and the World to China”.
