Carlson Rezidor’s loyalty program achieves one millionth member mark in Asia Pacific
SINGAPORE (August 25, 2014) – Club CarlsonSM, Carlson Rezidor’s global hotel rewards program, recently recognized and rewarded its millionth member in Asia Pacific with one million Club Carlson Gold Points®. Club Carlson, one of the fastest-growing in the world, has more than 12 million members globally. It is ranked fourth among all the top hospitality rewards programs and is also one of the most rewarding hotel loyalty programs in the world.
“Club Carlson membership has been growing exponentially in Asia Pacific, in line with Carlson Rezidor’s rapidly expanding footprint across the region with close to 100 operating hotels. For our hotel owners, Club Carlson’s reach and increasing popularity means even more repeat stays, a higher average spend and stronger revenue performance. For our Club Carlson members, staying at our hotels means that they are not only assured of a memorable guest experience, they are also rewarded generously through Club Carlson benefits, which include the fastest route to a free night’s stay. Congratulations to Mr Rong Weijie on being our one millionth member,” said Mr Thorsten Kirschke, president, Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.
Mr Rong Weiji is a Sales and Marketing Division Manager from Santen Pharmaceutical, who checked into Radisson Blu Shanghai New World on August 22, 2014. He said, “I choose where to stay based on brand, quality, service and location. I know Carlson Rezidor has hotels in many locations worldwide and as I travel the world for both business and leisure, I have stayed at quite a few of them – in France, Italy and Asia Pacific. I feel comfortable choosing Carlson Rezidor hotels and I will definitely use my Gold Points for my next holiday, and perhaps also redeem some points for car rental and other benefits.”
