6 Baglioni Hotels Dee McGuinness Director of Business Development Baglioni Hotels Via Pontaccio 10 Milan, Italy +39 (0) baglionihotels.com Networking is an essential medium for businesses to grow. In large-scale symposiums and conferences, you can realistically only connect with a handful of people. With the smaller size and exclusivity of Connections Luxury, I would like to meet and enjoy quality time with many people I could learn from which, in turn, will help to develop my expertise. 4 The Baglioni Hotel Group was created in 1974, when Roberto Polito built his first establishment in Punta Ala, Tuscany (Hotel Cala del Porto), working with his wife Lisa to develop a unique concept of hospitality in terms of life experience: a journey, Italian-style, through the country s culture and various traditions. With this in mind, it developed a collection that currently counts nine exclusive hotels, largely located in period buildings in the historical centres of Europe s major cities of art. There are five hotels in Italy, three in France and one in the heart of London. Marking a significant turning point in the design concept for Baglioni Hotels is the idea behind the London property. It has an innovative style that has reinvigorated the image of the brand, thanks to close attention to detail, careful selection of materials and a constant balance between tradition and modernity in the search for a less formal and more subtle vision of elegance and hospitality. This new concept of contemporary luxury is aimed at an increasingly demanding public that is attentive to new trends our most exclusive suite, the Roman Penthouse (a 590-squaremetre apartment with the best panoramic view of Rome, the Eternal City) a case in point. Its next opening will be in the Middle East with the management of an 80-room boutique hotel, Baglioni Marrakech: a resort designed in collaboration with prestigious international brands with a spa and a selection of plots of land for private homes. However, expansion plans do not stop there. Indeed, projects include the opening of new hotels in Italy, New York and more in the Middle East.
