Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 has launched a Guide to Global Business, aimed at conference and event organisers dealing with international clients.
Capitalising on its airport location and conference capacity for large numbers of international delegates, the hotel says the guide aims to help organisers host a successful event in the UK, with delegates from any continent. It offers general guidelines on how people from different countries and cultures may act, and how they may like to be welcomed, do business and be entertained.
The Guide to Global Business provides tips on business negotiations, introductions, eating and drinking, dress code and body language. In addition to this, the hotel has worked with Rosetta Stone to provide language guidance and has the full endorsement of London & Partners, the Mayor of London’s official promotional organisation for the city.
“Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 has become synonymous with global business,” says GM Meredith Bevan. “Our location provides an ideal hub for companies and individuals to meet and do business. As such, we’ve become experts on managing large-scale events and those that involve many different cultures, traditions and specifications. We know a few well placed and considered actions can go a long way in your business dealings.”
Tracy Halliwell, Director Business Tourism and Major Events at London & Partners, adds: “With increasing numbers of international delegates in the city, initiatives such as the Guide to Global Business will help event organisers harness the buzz in the capital, understand how to do business in London and welcome the world to their own event.”
More information on and extracts from Hilton Terminal 5’s Guide to Global Business will be published in a future issue of CN’s sister publication Conference & Meetings World magazine.
