  • (1888PressRelease) March 23, 2010 - JinJiang Inn Shanghai hotel offers budget-priced accommodation with luxury facilities and services. The Shanghai accommodation is expecting to have almost a full house over the period of the Shanghai World Expo 2010 from May 1 to October 31 this year, owing to a decision not to raise rates too much over the period.

    Ms Tracy Guo, Marketing Manager at Jinjiang Inn, explained the decision: "Our Shanghai hotel has always been focused on simple luxuries, pragmatic features and excellent service. We see no reason to raise our rates too much to luxury levels because of demand - and because of that, we are already seeing a substantial number of advance bookings for the World Expo".

    The Shanghai World Expo will be divided into pavilions for participating countries, each holding events such as:
    Culturally focused singing, dancing and entertainment events
    Business networking functions
    Policy discussions
    Corporate sponsored functions

    "We find that business people prefer cheaper accommodation over the longer term - they don't need the bells and whistles, and the bills, that 4.5 star hotels create", continued Ms Guo.

    Over 10,000 journalists have registered to cover the event, and crowds of up to 70 million are expected - the largest ever recorded at a World's Fair. This will stretch Shanghai accommodation to the limit.

    Like the Olympics, a country must apply to the International World Expo Committee and be approved in order to host an annual World Expo. Pavilions at the World Expo, divided into countries, often cost upwards of US$17 million to build. However, returns to the country in the form of trade partnerships, tourism etc can run into the hundreds of millions.
