Prestigious award for Corinthia Hotels International

Corinthia Hotels International has been voted 'Best Hotel Group in the Mediterranean', by UK and Irish travel agents taking part in the 2002 Selling Short Breaks Travel Industry Awards, announced this month by popular UK Travel Trade publication 'Selling Short Breaks'.

Corinthia Hotels International is fast emerging as a leading brand of four and five-star city and resort hotels, with upscale properties in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Libya, Malta, Portugal, Russia, The Gambia, Togo, Tunisia and Turkey.

The Group has recently acquired the Corinthia Nevskij Palace Hotel in St Petersburg, Russia, and the former Diamant Antwerpen Hotel in Belgium, now renamed Corinthia Antwerp Hotel. In December of this year, the Group will be celebrating the re-birth of the legendary Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal in the heart of Budapest, Hungary, and the opening of the brand new Corinthia Towers Hotel, Tripoli, which will dominate the skyline in the Libyan capital. Both superior five-star properties will offer extensive conference and leisure facilities.

"This award is very significant to us as it comes at a time when the Group is rapidly expanding in the meeting, conference, corporate and incentive trade" said CHI acting chairman Mr Karmenu Vella "It clearly emphasises the fact that despite this planned diversification, we fully intend to maintain a leading position in the leisure and short break travel sector as well, offering the superior standards of comfort and service for which we have built an enviable reputation over these last 40 years " concluded Mr Vella.

'Selling Short Breaks' magazine is published in the UK every two months by BMI Publications, who has been producing publications, primarily in the travel and tourism sectors, for almost 25 years. It is distributed to every travel agent and tour operator in the UK and Ireland. Copies are also distributed to corporate travel managers and incentive travel organisers. The magazine specialises in coverage of the short breaks and holidays sector and readers are provided with news and information on short break holidays in the UK, Europe and further afield.
