Millennium & Copthorne Hotels (M&C) is making its
first steps into Japan, with a collaboration with hotel group, Mitsui
Garden Hotel, which is owned by one of Japan’s largest property
developers, Mitsui Fudosan.
The online collaboration which goes live in
February, will feature information about each corporation’s
hotels, their locations, and a bit about the regions they are
situated in. Both groups will also publish their hotel information
in their respective Worldwide Directories.
Under the collaboration, Mitsui will host
information about M&C’s extensive network of over 120 hotels
worldwide. Likewise, M&C’s corporate site will carry information
about Mitsui’s network of 14 Mitsui Garden Hotels. Mitsui has more
than 3,800 rooms in Japan.
The agreement will be sealed at the end of
January, between representatives of Mitsui and Millennium &
Copthorne International Limited, which is the M&C’s Singapore
office. M&C, listed in London, is the international hotel arm of
the Hong Leong Group.
“We would like to think of this as not just a
business collaboration, but a cultural one as well,” said Mr Yim
Choong Hing, MCIL’s Chief Operating Officer. “Mitsui Garden Hotels
and M&C Hotels offer unique experiences for our guests. By
providing an easy platform of information, we want to encourage
our guests to travel to more distant places and experience the
wonderful cultures in these countries. We look forward to a good,
long-term relationship with the Mitsui Fudosan group.”
