Hong Kong SAR, China – Wharf Hotels today announced the opening of a Regional Sales Office in Guangzhou, China. Headed by Regional Sales Director, Kenny Lai – a 14-year veteran of the hospitality industry, he will actively manage business developments in Guangzhou, Shenzhen and the rest of Guangdong Province, as well as cover strategic sales activities in the municipality of Chongqing and the provinces of Hunan, Hubei and Sichuan.

“Guangzhou and Shenzhen are key source markets for Wharf Hotels.  With a dedicated Sales Director overseeing these cities in the flourishing Greater Bay Area (GBA), our properties – specifically Marco Polo Lingnan Tiandi, Foshan and the four hotels in Hong Kong: Gateway Hotel, Marco Polo HongKong, Prince Hotel and The Murray, A Niccolo Hotel – are primed for strong business growth once borders reopen”, said Group Director Global Sales, Balwin Yeung.  “The Guangzhou office also enables us to further deepen collaboration and deliver the highest levels of service and support to clients and partners in the Central and South China regions.”

Despite the Covid-19 disruption in 2020, the GBA’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the year reportedly accounted for 11% of China’s economy, while in a separate PwC report – the GDP is anticipated to reach US$4.6 trillion in 2030.  This positive outlook is reinforced by the presence of 21 Fortune 500 companies in the GBA, the development of focus industries and additional infrastructure goals, which, collectively, has the potential to shape tourism and trade opportunities far into central China.

Wharf Hotels’ regional sales offices are located in Beijing, Guangzhou, London, New York, Tokyo, Shanghai and Singapore.
