CORINTHIA HOTEL KHARTOUM LAUNCHES BREAKTHROUGH INITIATIVE IN THE CITY, COMBINING CULTURAL UNITY AND BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES
First Ever Wedding Exhibition in Khartoum Promotes Cultural Unity
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, June 2013: In celebration of its 5th anniversary, Corinthia Hotel Khartoum, a five-star luxury property that has established itself as the premiere luxury hotel in the city, proudly launched last week the first ever Wedding Exhibition in Khartoum. This breakthrough initiative by the 5 star property has brought together 2000 visitors over its four days forum, resulting in increased business for the hotel as well as entrepreneurs and businesses, and a feeling of cultural unity for those present. Initially the event was planned over 3 days, however, due to popular demand and the extensive coverage in the local media it was decided to extend the exhibition by a day.
Weddings in Khartoum, as in many countries around the world are big, happy occasions that can bring cultural unison in a society. Corinthia Hotel Khartoum’s decision to launch this unique four-day Wedding Exhibition follows a clear vision from the hotel’s management to contribute to the economic development of the hotel as well as supporting the country’s economy. Many people of Sudanese nationality living abroad including the GCC countries return home to pledge their matrimonial vows amongst family and friends and this has also been part of the reasons to hold the event.
The sponsorship from Samsung and Zain who sponsored many prizes and Marsland Airlines offering free tickets to destinations where they operate, has greatly contributed towards the overall success of the event. With the support of other hand-picked quality partner exhibitors during the fair, the prestigious property Corinthia Hotel in Khartoum, sitting on the confluence of the Blue and White Nile, has opened its doors to local residents and also foreigners to make the best use of the beautiful and elegant hotel and its lush, landscaped gardens for weddings and events.
“We are highly satisfied with the large turnout at the fair and we feel that we have successfully achieved our main aims, which were to welcome residents and foreigners alike into our luxurious hotel to present to them the exclusive possibility of experiencing this unique event in their life onto the property’s luxurious premises”.
“Another objective was to bring together under one roof wedding organisers, health and beauty experts and other specialists required to organise a wedding to help them develop their business and we have fruitfully contributed to this”, added Mr Nicholas Borg, General Manager of the hotel.
Corinthia Hotel Khartoum has generously introduced a special package during the fair to couples who decide to have their wedding ceremony at the hotel. The couples receive a delicious wedding cake for free and best of all, complimentary nights in the specially designed honeymoon suites of the hotel.
The Corinthia Hotel Khartoum keeps broadening its dimensions. Besides being the luxury address in Khartoum where Cultural Luxury meets distinctive quality of service, the hotel continues to attract all kinds of business whether for accommodation or events. The wedding market keep growing irrespective of economic constraints and the Corinthia Hotel Khartoum recognises this niche and keeps striving to grow its share of the market by offering distinctive venues through personalised quality service that contribute towards success full and stress free events.
