Worldhotels member Stamford Hotels and Resorts, Australia and New Zealand`s leading luxury hotels group, will play host to some of the world`s leading business and political figures following its selection as the official hotel group for the Forbes Global CEO Conference.

The three-day conference, which opens in Sydney on August 30, has attracted a range of high-calibre speakers and delegates. These include the former Mayor of New York Rudolph Giuliani, Prime Minister of Australia John Howard, Chairman of the Shui On Group in Hong Kong Vincent Lo, Chairman of the Bank of East Asia Sir David Li, Chairman of the Board of Management for BMW Helmut Panke, and Hugh Morgon, President of the Business Council of Australia.

A large number of guests and delegates are expected to attend the conference, the fifth in the Forbes Global CEO Conference series.

The hotel of choice for speakers, associates and many delegates is the renowned Sir Stamford at Circular Quay. The 105-room property, which features one of Australia`s largest private collections of fine art, is regularly voted the leading hotel in Australia and has topped the Conde Nast Traveler Gold list.

Many delegates are also choosing the Stamford Plaza Double Bay, near Sydney`s CBD, known as Australia`s showbiz hotel for the calibre of entertainment, business and political leaders who are regular guests.

Stamford Hotels and Resorts has 10 award-winning hotels in Australia and New Zealand, including five properties in Sydney. All are members of Worldhotels, the world`s leading sales, marketing and distribution company for independent hotels and regional hotel groups, with nearly 500 members worldwide.

We are delighted to be the official hotel group for the Forbes Global CEO Conference, which is an important gathering of world leaders and thinkers, said Stamford Hotels and Resorts Chairman, Mr C.K. Ow.

As the most successful independent owner and operator of landmark hotels in Australia and New Zealand today, we are able to deliver the sophisticated level of hospitality and security and the range of world-class facilities that is expected by the conference organisers.

Stamford Hotels and Resorts celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2005: a milestone that recognizes the Group`s success in establishing an independent hotel brand in an era cluttered with all-too-similar global hotel chains.

We have developed properties and hotel management systems that deliver luxurious hospitality experiences tailored to the needs, interests and budgets of each guest. In return we have been honored with a loyal and discerning guest base from Australia and around the world.

Stamford Hotels and Resorts is a subsidiary of the Singapore-based Stamford Land Corporation.
