MCLEAN, Va. - As a way to provide meeting industry professionals and customers with key insights and best practices, Hilton Worldwide (NYSE: HLT) has launched Hilton Elevated Discussions - a video series showcasing thought leadership from various meeting industry professionals and travel industry influencers.

"Hilton takes pride in representing the most connected meeting, travel and business experiences, but it's understanding what's important to our customers and providing them with solutions, tools, insights and information that makes the difference," said Mark Komine, senior vice president and head of sales for the Americas. "The Hilton Elevated Discussions videos create an opportunity for planners and thought leaders to share peer-to-peer best practices, which isn't being done by others in the industry. It's about human connection and helping move our customers' world closer to those connections - H2H - human-to-human."
Videos are organized into four areas of focus - Building Connections, Driving Results, Creating Experiences and Doing It All Responsibly. The series will continue to evolve with the industry as new trends and best practices are identified.
Hilton Elevated Discussions are part of Hilton's broader sales philosophy - dubbed Connect - which refers to the company's belief in the power of human interactions. Hilton Elevated Discussions address the importance of these face-to-face connections and how planners can overcome the challenges of limited time and budgets to achieve a return on investment and to create environments that enrich the lives of attendees.
