Marriott Global Sales recently held its Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) sales meeting in the newly re-branded JW Marriott Hotel Kuwait City. The event was attended by the General Sales Office team from Dubai and sales representatives from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Oman, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Qatar.
“There is a tough economic climate out there…We need to continue to build on the existing awareness of Marriott’s numerous brands, while at the same time emphasizing the power of our unparalleled distribution channels and global reach,” said Vice President of Marriott Global Sales, Middle East, Africa and the Subcontinent, Samir Daqqaq.
He pointed out that while the hotel group holds an annual event for Middle East sales representatives, the GCC also deserved its own gathering, as the market was a significant one.
