Hilton Worldwide and Vital Voices Global Partnership Launch Global Freedom Exchange, a Collaboration to End Child Trafficking

New Program to Strengthen the Capacity of Women NGO Leaders in Fight Against Trafficking

MCLEAN, Va. - Thursday, June 27th 2013 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Today, Hilton Worldwide and Vital Voices Global Partnership announced that they have joined forces to help end child trafficking. Together, they have launched the Global Freedom Exchange, an innovative, multi-faceted educational and mentoring program targeting emerging and established women leaders. Program participants are on the forefront of global efforts to prevent and respond to the crime of child trafficking. Global Freedom Exchange is intended to create an international network of activists.
As a fundamental element of the Global Freedom Exchange, Hilton Worldwide and Vital Voices have brought together a select group of 26 women leaders from 13 countries, to participate in a two-week interactive learning and networking program. This event spans three U.S. cities - areas that have strong national and international resources focused on addressing human trafficking – Washington, DC, New York City, and Dallas, Texas. Activities include opportunities to meet with government officials and NGO leaders to provide donors with knowledge about funding and other support needs and to learn about collaborating with local law enforcement.
“Hilton Worldwide takes an aggressive stance against child trafficking, and we continually seek innovative partnerships that will enable us to make a real difference on such an important issue,” explained Kristin Campbell, EVP and general counsel, Hilton Worldwide. “We are very proud to support Vital Voices and invest in the crucial efforts of these amazing women. We believe that each can make a vast and deep impact, and we are fully committed to helping them realize their full leadership potential.”
Program participants are established or emerging leaders recognized for their passion and commitment to ending human trafficking and their innovative approach to this global issue. They include founders, advisors, legal counsels and program managers from non-governmental organizations. The women come from:
Ethiopia
India
Macau
Mexico
Panama
Peru
Philippines
Poland
Russia
South Africa
Thailand
Turkey
United States
“The goal of this program is to provide participants with specific knowledge, skills and relationships that will benefit their professional development, their respective NGOs and the communities they serve,” explained Alyse Nelson, president and CEO of Vital Voices Global Partnership. “The program will also develop an ongoing international network of activists working together to prevent and respond to the scourge of child sex trafficking throughout the world.”
This multi-year partnership between Hilton Worldwide and Vital Voices is part of Travel with Purpose™, Hilton Worldwide’s promise to providing shared value to its business and communities around the globe. It is an extension of the organization’s existing work to address child trafficking worldwide. Hilton Worldwide is the second U.S. multi-brand hospitality company to sign the ECPAT Code of Conduct and is signatory of the UN Global Compact. In addition to child trafficking awareness and training programs for hotel employees, the company also supports the capacity of non-governmental organizations to increase their programs to reach trafficking survivors.
Together, Hilton Worldwide and Vital Voices will provide a network of support, connecting each participant with Hilton Worldwide hotels in their communities to explore partnerships that will enhance their on-the-ground work. Five $10,000 grants will be awarded to the most collaborative and innovative projects addressing the Global Freedom Exchange’s mission to end child trafficking worldwide. Participants will also become members of the Vital Voices Global Leadership Network, which includes over 14,000 innovative change agents in more than 140 countries.

Storytelling by Design

Storytelling by Design | Hotel Sales & Marketing | Scoop.it
If you want a seamless guest experience your hotel needs to have a story Heres an example how to turn story ...

 

This is a quick yet very insightful article linking the interior design of a hotel, storytelling, and women's liberation.

 

"Whaaaaattttt??!!" you say. Yep. It's a perfect example of how a hotel got creative and leveraged storytelling in order to market themselves more effectively, and increase sales.

 

The post about a New York City hotel that originally opened as the Hotel Martha Washington. It was the first hotel in the country specially designed for women only. Based on the the building's history, the new owners of the hotel created a persona that typified women who stayed at the hotel.

 

From there they created interior designs that connected together its history, the contributions of 12 women to our world, their identified persona, and their marketing efforts. Brilliant!

 

I love how this company translated storytelling into the physical world through its interior designs. More companies need to be doing this for enhancing both employee and customer experiences/engagement.

 

For all the details, go read this article. Like a chocolate truffle, it's small but rich with a lasting impression!

In an unexpected move, six of the largest hotel companies in the world have partnered to launch a hotel search engine of their own, dubbed Roomkey.com. The hotel companies hope that offering a ‘personalized experience’ and ‘accurate information’ will make travelers choose for them when they search for accommodation.

Choice Hotels International, Hilton Worldwide, Hyatt Hotels Corporation, InterContinental Hotels Group, Marriott International and Wyndham Hotel Group teamed up to start Roomkey.com to, in their own words, “provide travelers a search and book experience tailored for ease of hotel shopping through an uncluttered and trustworthy site”.

Jacksonville Jaguars want $2 million annual Florida sales tax rebate for 30 years

Jacksonville Jaguars want $2 million annual Florida sales tax rebate for 30 years | Hotel Sales & Marketing | Scoop.it

Wine and football. A measure to give the Miami Dolphins $3 million a year in sales tax rebates and hotel bed tax money has been rapidly advancing through the Legislature.

 

Now it’s time for the Jacksonville Jaguars to finally hit the field of legislative committee rooms. A proposal (SB 922) by Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, would allow $2 million a year in sales tax rebates for stadium improvements to go to a pro sports team that already receives a similar break. Terms of the deal require a team to plan more than $80 million in upgrades and to have at least 15 years remaining on its stadium lease.

 

EverBank Field in Jacksonville is one of eight stadiums and arenas in Florida currently receiving sales tax rebates from Florida. The committee will also review the Florida Wine Canister Act (SB 658) that would allow distributors to make and sell "wine kegs" or large containers of wine. (Monday, 1 p.m., 110 Senate Office Building, The Capitol.)
