SPOTLIGHT...........................................................................................................................

Ascott celebrates 25 successful years as the top international serviced residence owner-operator. Ascott pioneered the serviced residence concept with its first international-class property, The Ascott Singapore, on Scotts Road in Singapore in 1984. Over 25 years, Ascott has grown to be the world's largest owner-operator in the business, with 25,000 units in 66 cities in 22 countries. Ascott operates 189 properties through its three brands – Ascott, Somerset and Citadines, across Asia Pacific, Europe and the Gulf region.

Citadines, an established hospitality brand in Europe that Ascott acquired in 2004, also has a 25 year history having started operations in France in 1984. Ascott has since extended the brand to the Asia Pacific. Find out more about Ascott's milestones here.

Ascott celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year with a host of special promotions to thank Ascott's customers for their 25 years of sterling support. One lucky customer will win the grand draw prize of a three-nights stay at any of Ascott's serviced residences worldwide for 25 consecutive years. Customers may also enjoy monthly rewards of free stays and 25% off Best Available Rates in over 25 cities each month. The series of promotions and rewards start this month and are valid throughout the year.

EUROPE.................................................................................................................................

In an ongoing partnership with Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque Association, an organisation in France which receives and operates on underprivileged children with serious heart disorders that cannot be treated in their home countries, Citadines sponsored accommodation for 10 international doctors who were in France to treat and monitor the conditions of children who had just recovered from heart operations. This summer, Ascott's 41 Citadines properties across Europe will embark on its second charity sale of Citadines teddy bears, called 'Petit Coeur' (or 'Little Heart' in English) and the proceeds will go towards the organisation.
