This is the second formal meeting between the two groups within the past few months. Representing Jin Jiang at this event included Jin Jiang International Hotel's Ms. Cinn Tan, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Sales and Mr. James Kim, Vice President of Operations and the Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Shanghai Jin Jiang International E-Commerce Co., Ltd., Mr. Joseph Xia. Representing Hanwha from THE PLAZA consisted of the hotel's General Manager Mr. Young-Chul Kim and their executive team of senior directors.

The event covered the signing of a number of important business agreements between the two parties which were first stipulated during the official MOU event earlier this year. This event saw the official signing of the partnership between Jin Jiang's J-Club and Hanwha Hotel and Resort's, THE PLUS, loyalty membership programs which promises exclusive cross memberships and commences from 1 September, 2014. Both loyalty program members will receive benefits such as room, food, and beverage discounts, late check-outs and upgrades. In addition, all of J-Club's 14 million plus members can enjoy Hanwha's resorts and golf benefits across Korea. Also finalized at the event was the cross marketing cooperation for their global sales and PR teams, the employee cross training and exchange programs to take place two times a year, and the affiliate food and beverage promotional program, which has already commenced with top chefs from the Jin Jiang Tower hotel in Shanghai, making their grand debut in Korea.

Ms. Cinn Tan stated, "We are very happy to be here once again and to see this growing and significant partnership between the two groups move so positively forward. We are particularly excited about the cross loyalty membership program as it serves as a great platform for us to introduce our popular J-Club to a much wider market and to give Hanwha's guests the chance to experience its many benefits. Korea is an important source market for us, highlighted by the fact that it has also become a top travel destination for China's outbound tourists, and this partnership will no doubt help us increase our brand awareness into this exciting new market."

The objective between the two groups with these business agreements is to build a strong partnership and strengthen the operational and marketing efforts for both their staff and guests. In addition, this visit was also a chance to discuss further on any extra opportunities to enhance each other's products and services.

Commenting on the benefits of the partnership, Mr. Young-Chul Kim stated, "I am happy to announce the benefits for the members from Hanwha Hotels & Resort's loyalty membership program, including our golf members, who can now all also enjoy the benefits from J-Club at the Jin Jiang hotels across China. We at Hanwha Hotels and Resorts, as well as THE PLAZA, will be devoted to providing the utmost convenience and to improve the satisfaction of all our guests from Jin Jiang. We also hope that by working so closely with Jin Jiang International Hotels, together we will produce positive and tangible results in the improvement of our operations and to increase exposure of the two brands in both the China and Korean market."
