SHANGHAI, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jin Jiang International Hotels, China's leading hotel brand, will be present for the first time at the Global Business Travel Association's (GBTA) GBTA Convention 2013 to be held from August 4-7 in San Diego, California, USA, and will be represented by Ms. Cinn Tan, Senior Vice President Marketing & Sales and Mr. Fabian Seet, Director of International Marketing & Sales.
Jin Jiang International Hotels and GBTA have already fostered a strong relationship after they partnered together in April for the GBTA China Conference 2013 in Shanghai. This was GBTA Asia's first regional conference in China, and Jin Jiang International Hotels hosted the event at their flagship business hotel, Jin Jiang Tower, and also at a welcome dinner at their flagship hotel, Jin Jiang Hotel.
Ms. Tan, who heads the marketing and sales department at Jin Jiang International Hotels, is also personally involved with GBTA. A seasoned professional in international hospitality marketing, sales and distribution with over 15 years' experience working in China, she was recently appointed by GBTA as a China Advisory Board Member and leads the supplier team within the board.
Ms. Tan is actively involved with GBTA's efforts to bring this organization to China and states, "My vision is to contribute to the development of China's corporate travel industry and to build and bring the best practices of business travel management to local Chinese companies, especially within large corporations such as state-owned enterprises. China is a fast-growing, key hospitality emerging market and needs an organization such as GBTA to be an educator in offering advice and setting a benchmark to enhance the country's travel management standards. I am confident of the success of having this highly influential international organization in China, and look forward to continuing and further strengthening our close partnership with GBTA in the years to come."
In conjunction to Jin Jiang's presence at the convention, Mr. Welf Ebeling, GBTA Vice President, Operations for Asia, also commented, "We are extremely pleased about the participation of Jin Jiang International Hotels at the GBTA Convention as it offers attending buyers for the first time a direct introduction to China's largest domestic hotel company.
