GHA wins industry awards

02 September 2013

Collinson (formerly ICLP) are pleased to announce that our client, Global Hotel Alliance (GHA) has won 9 industry awards with the GHA Discovery programme, which focuses on offering its members amazing local experiences wherever they travel.

The programme has been recognised across multiple disciplines across 4 industry award ceremonies.

GHA’s CEO, Chris Hartley commented, “We recently celebrated GHA’s 10th Anniversary and now GHA Discovery has won these fabulous awards, so it’s certainly exciting times for the alliance. I believe the key to our success has been enabling customer recognition across multiple brands and ensuring all 425 hotels can deliver what we promise the customer each time they stay, regardless of the brand they choose.

Everyone associated with GHA Discovery can be proud of what we’ve achieved in creating this loyalty programme, which is still only four years old; and we hope and expect that more brands will join us in offering what is becoming an exciting alternative for customers to the points-based, mega-chain programmes, and create further success in the future”.
