Wharf Hotels launches Incentive Rewards Contest for Global Hotel Alliance’s G-Leads

Hong Kong SAR, China, 20 March 2020 – In the spirit of cooperation and collaboration, Wharf Hotels continues its commitment to Global Hotel Alliance (GHA) by reinforcing the group’s inspiring sales incentive reward programme, G-Leads.  Ensuring every business opportunity is presented to GHA member hotels first, the programme allows its partner brand relationships to be strengthened and revenue amplified within the Alliance’s family.
A cross-brand selling programme that fosters the exchange of business prospects, all GHA Associates are rewarded with an incentive for qualified, materialised business referred to and confirmed by any GHA property.  
Evolving into what has become the world’s largest luxury alliance of independent hotel brands with over 16 million members joining their loyalty program, DISCOVERY, Wharf Hotels recently launched a G-Leads Champion Challenge amongst its 5,000 Associates, encouraging healthy competition and a business-led mind-set.  Winning the contest was luxury hotel colleague, Vicky Tang, Director of Sales - Rooms from Niccolo Chengdu, an Ultratravel Collection hotel and the group’s first foray into the luxury segment, who raced ahead of her Colleagues to cross-sell business across the Alliance’s member hotels.  Her top performance was rewarded with round-trip flights for two including accommodation at any GHA member hotel in Asia Pacific.
Balwin Yeung, Group Director Global Sales of Wharf Hotels said, “We are delighted that Vicky raised the bar to become our top G-Leads performer, presenting a milestone moment in the programme to drive business not only to our hotel group but also to partner brands.  The programme drives us all to be ambassadors for each of the participating brands, and with hotels from Lisbon and Malta to Havana and Tokyo, GHA’s network allows our guests to trot the globe with effortless ease.”
