New World Hospitality Unveils Aggressive Expansion Plans

HONG KONG, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire-Asia/ --

Relaunches Flagship New World Hotels

    HONG KONG, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Hong Kong-based New World Hospitality has launched an

aggressive programme to establish itself as an influential player in the regional and international hospitality

industry, with more than 20 projects currently under development, representing an investment of over USD1.1

billion across three distinct brands.

  Leading the expansion is the repositioning of its New World Hotels flagship brand, in which a new visual identity

and service culture were unveiled today in the group's properties in China, Vietnam and the Philippines.  

    As well, new properties and opening dates announced today include New World Hotels in Guiyang (2011),

Beijing (2012); Shenyang (2013), and Qingyuan (2014).  By 2015, the number of New World Hotels is targeted to

more than double.

    In addition to the New World Hotels brand of deluxe properties, New World Hospitality manages the select

service brand, pentahotels, currently represented in Shanghai, and a new premium luxury brand is also currently

under development. 

    These initiatives underscore New World Hospitality's aim to provide guests refreshing alternatives across a

    "We focus on building strong and long-lasting relationships with our guests, each other and our communities. 

This philosophy is our compass, shared with our guests at every touch-point in their stays, delivered by associates

Chairman Sonia Cheng.

    As part of the revitalisation of New World Hotels, the concept of "Modern Oriental Hospitality" has been


    "Modern Oriental hospitality means featuring the best of the region's hospitality traditions and the values that

they spring from, but extending them in a refreshingly engaging and fluid way," said Ms. Cheng.   

    To facilitate New World Hotels' significant repositioning, New World Hospitality has recruited some of the most

experienced and dedicated hoteliers in the industry and, to reinforce its new service culture, New World Hotels has

dedicated funds notably above industry standards for training and development.

    "In conjunction with our new visual identity and workplace culture, we have launched a programme of initiatives

that will include almost every aspect of the hotels, from human resources to sales and marketing, from operations

to physical product," said Symon Bridle, New World Hospitality's senior vice president -- operations.

    A regional advertising campaign has been launched featuring the work of award-winning photographer Platon

Antoniou, supplemented by the unveiling of both corporate and hotel websites,

    The marketing campaigns introduce the New World Hotels logo with its mulberry symbol, the fruit of the tree from

which the first silk was created in China.  The story of silk's creation -- how, through care and craftsmanship, a

simple source became an exotic, beautiful, long-lasting, high-quality substance -- was the inspiration for New World

Hotels' fresh visual identity.  

    "Similarly, we hope with creativity to build a long-lasting, authentic entity, that is beautiful in its own right," said

Ms. Cheng.
