Central Hall scoops key Chinese Award
Big celebrations this week at Central Hall Westminster after the venue received the Chinese Tourists Welcoming Award 2013.
Presented at COTTM 2013, China’s largest outbound travel and tourism exhibition, the award recognises companies and organisations that have ‘gone the extra mile’ to welcome Chinese travellers while also dealing with their needs in an efficient and welcoming manner.
It was an exciting week for Senior Sales Manager, Kevin Blackman, dedicated China account manager, representing Central Hall with a full week of business appointments at the show, the launch event of www.c-h-w.com/cn; a new dedicated website for the Chinese market and being honoured by a Chinese jury to receive an Award.
Kevin Blackman, Senior Sales Manager at Central Hall Westminster reports from Beijing, China:’’ This is an enlightening experience and I have made some excellent contacts. Tomorrow, I have an interview with CCTV (English Speaking TV Station) followed by business lunch and more meetings in the afternoon.
Overall, it really is true that face to face relationships are KEY in this market.’’
Central Hall Westminster has been able to attract a steady flow of Chinese business clients over the past 24 months. Embracing this opportunity, Central Hall launched a two year multi-faceted sales and marketing drive to develop these relationships and grow the brand in the Chinese market.
