In some of the Greatest Cities of the World

Corinthia Hotels International (CHI) has recently tapped the United States/North American market and is now actively pursuing business from the MICE and Corporate world by proactively marketing a premier selection of six five-star hotels in the greatest cities of the world to Meeting, Incentive, Conference and Event (MICE) Planners and business travelers throughout North America.

CHI'S premier selection of six five-star hotels includes: the Corinthia Bab Africa Hotel in Tripoli, the Corinthia San Gorg Hotel in Malta, the Corinthia Towers Hotel in Prague, the Corinthia Nevskij Palace Hotel in St Petersburg, the Corinthia Alfa Hotel in Lisbon and the Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal in Budapest. Indeed, the hotels in Budapest, Lisbon and Tripoli can individually handle bigger meetings than any other hotels in their respective cities. This affirms Corinthia as the undisputed market leader in these increasingly popular conference destinations.

According to Geoff Andrew, Group Director of Sales and Marketing for CHI, "Out of the company's 20 hotels, this selection of six five-star properties will be most attractive to U.S. travellers." Andrew continued "Our hotels offer all the facilities and amenities of any great first class hotel topped with the hallmark of our company: outstanding service. Indeed, CHI's stated aim is to exceed customer expectations in all our hotels at all times."

Every one of the six hotels offers a range of luxurious accommodation with adaptable meeting facilities. Each of the hotels retains its unique identity but operates by drawing upon the expertise of an international chain with long years of experience in conference and incentive travel.

Corinthia Hotels International has a unique approach to events. The company's commitment to this market has just been reinforced by the launching of the "Events@Corinthia" division, dedicated exclusively to cater to the MICE and corporate world. Events@Corinthia will be concentrating fully in satisfying the most demanding client. To that goal, Corinthia dedicates a Corinthia Event Assistant to each of the events, a personal contact 24 hours a day and a free mobile phone that provides the event organizer with free local calls


The company's commitment to this market goes even further. In addition to personalized service to ensure a successful event, Corinthia packages are backed up by the "Corinthia's Event Promise" program. Under this plan, Corinthia offers each event organizer the following services:

"We are confident our unrivalled expertise in event organization coupled with our magnificent properties throughout Europe and our personal touch and brilliant service will ensure that any meeting, conference or incentive organized in any of our hotels is a complete success." Andrew stated.

The premier collection of six hotels offer comprehensive services to meet the most detailed and specific arrangements - for anything from international scale conferences to small groups.

Corinthia Hotels International offers the latest in conference technology and logistical support providing hands-on organizational support before and during guests' stay.

CHI's staff will pleasantly surprise you with their creative ideas for banquets and receptions, innovative cultural tours and entertainment options.


Corinthia Hotels International's four decades of experience in the hospitality industry began in 1962 with the acquisition by the Pisani family of Villa Corinthia, an art nouveau villa in Malta which was to be operated as an upscale restaurant. The Corinthia Restaurant soon established itself as an essential part of Malta's glittering social scene. With its success firmly established, the next stage was to construct a hotel and, in 1968, the Corinthia Palace Hotel was opened on the Grounds of Villa Corinthia.

CHI is today a fast growing hotel operation with 20 four- and five-star city and resort hotels in 11 exciting destinations primarily in central Europe and the Mediterranean basin. CHI takes pride in keeping alive the local character and individuality of each of its hotels. Outstanding service is the Company's hallmark and it strives to ensure that guests enjoy each property's distinct style and tradition. Indeed, the stated aim is to exceed customer expectations in all Corinthia hotels at all times.

A continued family commitment, coupled with a well-trained and motivated workforce of more than 5,000 employees, CHI is a dynamic institution that looks towards present and future growth with a confidence born out of long years of experience in the hospitality sector and an inherent desire of achieving excellence in all its activities.
