S07 E03: Adelina Wong Ettelson, Global Head of Residences Marketing at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group
Scott Kerr speaks to Adelina Wong Ettelson, global head of residences marketing at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, about the surging demand from ultra-high-net-worth buyers to live in luxury branded residences. Adelina discusses why more non-hotelier luxury brands like Armani, Aston Martin, and Baccarat are competing in the space and the advantages of a hospitality brand associated with the property. Adelina also talks about how Mandarin Oriental brings the same legendary service and sophistication to the global branded residences, how the new meaning of home has sparked more interest in branded residences, how it positions itself versus luxury hotel branded residences such as Ritz-Carlton and Four Seasons, and the launch of its first two stand-alone U.S. residences along with an exclusive partnership with Saks Fifth Avenue. Plus: The new nostalgic-inspired "It Happened" campaign for Mandarin Oriental Residences from renowned adman David Lipman
