Three leading hotel groups – Six Continents Hotels, Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts – have joined forces to sponsor hotel security workshops in Bali and Jakarta.
The one-day events, organised by HOTEL Asia Pacific magazine and Bali Discovery Tours, take place in Bali on December 16 and Jakarta on January 9. Full details of venues, topics and speakers will be announced shortly.
The HOTEL Asia Pacific Hotel Security Workshops are aimed at presenting the latest thinking in both technical and human approaches to improve hotel security, and will showcase top speakers in the field as well as demonstrations of the latest equipment available in the field of hotel security.
Discussions will also be held on how to deal with security issues in marketing a specific destination to the conference and meeting markets.
Similar workshops are also being planned in other countries, including Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore.
HOTEL Asia Pacific publisher/editor Steve Shellum commented: The Bali bombings should serve as a wake-up call to the hotel industry. The workshops will provide a valuable platform for sharing essential knowledge, experience and resources to help prevent the unthinkable happening at hotels, whether resort or city properties.
The commitment of Six Continents, Starwood and Shangri-La towards these workshops is highly encouraging and commendable. Security is the one issue that hotel groups must be prepared to discuss openly, and share information and expertise.
