Marriott ties up with TED
Marriott Hotels announces a partnership with TED, the non-profit “devoted to ideas worth spreading”.
This relationship brings creatively curated TED Talks, blogs and original quotes to hotel guests worldwide.
Travellers staying at Marriott Hotels will now have access to “thought-provoking and inspirational content to help jumpstart their own original, inventive thinking”.
The content is curated by TED, according to selected themes that are topical and relevant to guests, including curiosity, innovation, travel and entrepreneurship.
The themes change every quarter.
In addition, through this partnership, Marriott Hotels will also host a series of five global TED Talks Fellows salons in Seattle, London, Dubai, Bangkok and Santiago throughout this year and into 2017.
Themes and speakers for the salons will coincide with the content themes during that period.
“We know that travellers today look for more in a hotel and we are bringing to life new innovations that help elevate guests’ stay to memorable experiences,” said Matthew Carroll, vice president and global brand manager of Marriott Hotels.
