- (1888PressRelease) December 08, 2011 - London, UK - Global Thinkers is excited to announce the launch of Select168 (www.select168.com) the first and only Exclusive Lifestyle Concierge catering solely for the wishes, lifestyle needs and VIP tastes of the high-end Chinese upper class.
Select 168 is a full-service boutique concierge agency, dedicated to providing its clients with the best and most professional service available. Its lifestyle concierge service aims at making life easier, more beautiful and far more exciting for the S168 members. S168 organises anything that its clients lack the time, expertise or contacts to plan themselves. The agency offers the highest level of personalized services in the fields of: Arts & Collections, Fashion, Exclusive Properties market, bespoke holidays and dream travels, private transportation, Global Media relations, private or corporate event organizing of unique character for its corporate clientele and Ivy League University concierge for its young audience.
Select 168 understands the particularities and individualities of the Chinese market. For example, in relation to travel services S168 operates under three important considerations: quality of service, Chinese-friendly culture, and quick facilitation of visa processing. Select 168 brings a wealth of experience in how best to target China's wealthy consumers. Another attribute that distinguishes wealthy Chinese consumers from their foreign counterparts is their youth. Some 80% are under 45, compared with 30% in the United States and 19% in Japan. Because they are newer to the consumer market and to wealth, they are also less knowledgeable about studies in Ivy League Colleges, luxury services and investment opportunities.
A select 168 member can be provided with a private jet to Monaco, a Rolls Royce awaiting them as their private jet arrives, along with dinner reservations at the most exclusive places. They can be provided with exclusive and confidential consultation in relation to anything legal and ethical that relates to VIP lifestyle.
The official launch date for Select 168 is December 8 at 1600 Asia Pacific Time.
"The Chinese society is transforming. New habits, trends, tastes and preferences are being created and a desire for a new, exclusive lifestyle is becoming dominant among China's wealthy", says Elizabeth Filippouli, Select 168's Founder and also Director of Global Thinkers, the UK company that represents and operates Select 168. "Select 168 was born because of my personal eagerness to delve deeper into the fascinating Chinese culture, come closer to the Chinese people and open new pathways for Chinese to enjoy the luxury of Western lifestyle. I hope we will succeed".
Select 168 will promote its services through high-end events and a tailored media and marketing campaign. The Concierge is bilingual to allow its clientele to communicate in the language they are better at ease with. 'Select 168' (选择168 in Chinese) implies exclusivity, elite choices for elite clients and a life of good fortune, wealth and joy.
