Abu Dhabi, September 28, 2008
The Emirates Palace Hotel's marketing blitzkreig in key US cities has paid off, according to a senior hotel official, a report said.
The hotel completed a series of roadshows to promote the property to the leisure and business travel market in the US, Hans Olbertz, the hotel's general manager, was quoted as saying in the Gulf News report.
The promotion covered New York, Washington, Chicago and Los Angeles and was attended by Reto Witwer, president and general manager of Kempinski Hotels.
'Witwer has presided over talks with a number of leading tourism players in the US,' stated Olbertz.
'CEOs of travel and tourism companies in major US cities were satisfied with the tourism facilities, infrastructure and incentives in the UAE,' he added.
