On Jan. 7, Tianjin Lujiazui Marriott Hotel was accused of refusing to host its annual meeting because the other party was a funeral enterprise. Today (9), Ms. Yan, the public relations manager of the company affiliated to the hotel, responded that the investigation was under way.
On January 7, Mr. Guo, head of the ashes storage office of Xicheng dormitory in Tianjin, echoed the reporter of Beijing News. The unit had planned to hold an annual meeting at Wanyi Hotel in Lujiazui, Tianjin, on
January 10. He said that after publishing the information of the annual meeting, on January 5, the manager of Tianjin Lujiazui Marriott Hotel contacted him and said that he could contract for the annual meeting. Subsequently, the company paid a dep
osit and waited for the signing of the convention. “I kept urging them that the convention was never heard of.” At 4 p.m. on the 7th, the hotel informed Mr. Guo that it had no choice but to undertake the event.
Mr. Guo suspected that the refusal of the annual meeting had something to do with his informing the hotel that his unit was the funeral industry. He recalled that a manager of the hotel had telephoned to inquire about his company’s industry, and in response to the funeral industry, the manager further asked him if he had any wreaths and other supplies. “We’re holding a chamber of agents, not a memorial service.”
According to the recording of the conversation with the hotel staff, when Mr. Guo said why he refused to host the annual meeting of his company, the other side said that because “the order can not be placed, the venue can not be determined”.
Mr. Guo’s Hotel telegraphic transfer certificate shows that he paid the hotel a deposit of 17302 yuan. He said the hotel said the deposit would be returned without apology or compensation. The company has sent invitations to more than 50 agents, and the cancellation of the annual meeting will have a negative impact on the company.
Today, Ms. Yan, public relations manager of Tianjin Lujiazui Hotel Management Co., Ltd., responded that the matter is still under investigation.
