ĐÀ NẴNG — InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort has announced that it will host the flagship event, APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting of the 25th APEC Summit, on November 11, 2017.
This year, the APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) Summit lands in Đà Nẵng, the third largest city of Việt Nam. In preparation for the important event, Sun Group, the company that owns the resort, has worked with the local Government authorities, the APEC Committee and invested more than VNĐ100 billion (US$4.45 million) to give the resort a new look by widening internal roads and upgrading technical infrastructure facilities.
With the theme "Where World’s Leaders Meet,” the conference centre will welcome heads of government from all 21 member-economies, along with thousands of delegates, world-leading entrepreneurs and international journalists.
A brand-new reception hall of nearly 500sqm has been built alongside an array of meeting and function rooms and a VIP lounge with a unique design by the famed architect, Bill Bensley. The airy architecture blends the latest technology with a modern interpretation of traditional Vietnamese design elements. The adjoining terraces open onto spectacular views of the lush landscape, mountains and sea surrounding the resort.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for us to host such an important event at the resort. For months, our team has been working hard under the instructions and guidance of the APEC Committee, Đà Nẵng’s Government and the Sun Group management team to make sure everything is perfect,” said General Manager of InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, Juan Losada.
“Located in such a pristine setting, surrounded by a beautiful landscape with panoramic views of the ocean, our magnificent resort is the perfect backdrop to showcase the best that the destination has to offer," Losada added.
Opened in 2012, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is a one-of-a-kind resort that redefines the definition of luxury in Việt Nam. Crowned as the World’s Leading Luxury Resort by World Travel Awards for three consecutive years, the resort contributes to putting Đà Nẵng on the world’s tourism map. — VNS
