Hong Kong’s spectacular Conrad Hotel was the last stop for the Aussie travel agent group on a joint QF/BA famil to Europe last week.
The agents and Travel Daily tried out BA’s new B777-300 which flies daily on the LHR-HKG sector and were lucky to be seated in Business Class. “A super product, and it’s going to impress our market when it begins flying from Sydney on 1st April next year,” said Zack Underwood of Fcm.
For Conrad, it was the first time they’d hosted an agents famil from Australia and they went all out to impress, housing the group in luxurious rooms towering 61 stories over Hong Kong’s famed Harbour.
They were treated to a sumptuous dinner in a private dining room attended by Bradley Moody, Director of Worldwide Sales for Hilton in Sydney who flew in especially for the occasion.
“Conrad is part of the Hilton worldwide luxury brand, so we wanted them to have a dual experience, staying in the Hilton Airport Frankfurt and the Conrad Hong Kong, and it gave us the opportunity to strengthen our relationships with them,” said Moody.
“We have ten different hotels under the Hilton brand, each one offering a unique guest experience,” Moody added.
The 22-year old Conrad sits above the Pacific Shopping complex, a shoppers paradise. Its 513 rooms offer marble bathrooms & high-speed Internet; and diners are in for a treat at Nicholini’s, specializing in authentic northern Italian fare, or there’s delicious Cantonese cuisine in the Golden Leaf Restaurant.
