Today, the Global Hotel Alliance (GHA) is the world’s largest alliance of independent hotel brands. GHA’s member brands currently comprise over 550 upscale and luxury hotels with 110,000 rooms across 76 different countries. Each hotel is unique with a different style reflecting the specific culture, traditions and history of the regions. They consistently provide high-quality service for the guests. The GHA started its second annual GHA Week from 12 April to 17 April. During that period, every salesperson within each hotel of the alliance was required to promote all the hotels and brands within the alliance during their normal sales calls and activities to generate revenue generation across all the brands through cross selling. Kempinski Hotel Guiyang took this opportunity to specially prepare an exquisite dinner for GHA members and valued corporate guests.
