Hilton London Canary Wharf celebrates ‘Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders’

Hilton London Canary Wharf is celebrating ‘Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders’ as Paul Middleton, its sales manager, has been invited to join the event launched by travel trade magazine, Travel Trade Gazette.

TTG’s ‘Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders’ claims to identify and honour the most inspiring young professionals in the travel industry who have made an outstanding contribution to their business. In the second year, the competition for the initiative has been strong, with young people participating from across the travel industry, and a panel of judges drawn from the Institute of Travel & Tourism to decide the make-up of the final group.

Paul Middleton, sales manager at Hilton London Canary Wharf, has been named one of the highest fliers in travel under the age of 30.

Middleton commented, ‘It was an honour to be nominated for Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders and even more so to be selected as one of the 30 finalists. The initiative is a great opportunity to celebrate best practice and, as a hotel, we are proud to represent Hilton Worldwide as a leading brand within the travel industry.’

Oliver Stockland, area general manager for Hilton Worldwide, added, ‘Paul is an excellent team player and an asset to Hilton London Canary Wharf. I’m delighted that he has been recognised in this way and am sure he will make an excellent contribution to the Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders scheme.’

Daniel Pearce, brand director for TTG Media, commented, ‘There are countless networking events in travel but there aren’t many opportunities for the younger stars of the business to meet, to network and to be inspired by some of travel’s leaders. Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders not only celebrates these individuals but also gives them a real opportunity to learn from some of the most senior people in the industry as well as each other. I’d personally like to congratulate Paul Middleton on making it to the final 30.’

Situated in the heart of the thriving Canary Wharf business district, the contemporary style Hilton London Canary Wharf claims to offer comfortable, neat accommodation, within easy and fast reach of East London destinations, including the Olympic Park, Cutty Sark, Greenwich Royal Observatory and The Emirates Air Line cable car. The hotel received a Certificate of Excellence Award from TripAdvisor in 2013, for providing guests with a consistently exceptional experience.

 

Four Seasons Hotel London at Canary Wharf Hosts Contemporary Art Exhibition

Four Seasons Hotel Canary Wharf in London, UK, is launching a series of art exhibits from September 20, 2012, which will continue for the entire autumn season.

The art exhibits, made by local talented artists, will be located in the hotel lobby and other public spaces. Some of the artists whose work will be on display are paintings by Alexander Johnson and screen prints by Jason Keeley.

The hotel will also be hosting an entertainment programme to compliment the exhibits. Live DJs will organise music on Thursday evenings, with cocktails and snack foods on offer for guests.

Michael Purtill, the general manager of Four Seasons London at Canary Wharf, said, ‘In recent years, we have realized that many of our guests are also art aficionados and that cultural tourism, especially in the east-side of London, can begin the minute they arrive in the lobby of the Hotel.’

The art exhibit is being conducted in collaboration with Modern ArtBuyer Limited, an online company that is showcasing contemporary paintings, prints and photographs of local talent.

Jessica Lloyd-Smith, the director at Modern ArtBuyer, said, ‘We’ve chosen to exhibit work that we know will enhance the Hotel environment and that we believe will appeal to the discerning business and leisure traveller. The stunning contemporary artwork will bring a sense of tranquility to the ultra-modern three-storey lobby.’

The exhibit launch will be with a party hosted at the hotel, with complimentary cocktail for guests.
