Beginning in Batam in the year of 2002, then fast forward to twenty-one hotels later, HARRIS – a network of midscale hotels avidly supporting the healthy lifestyle movement is turning fourteen years young this year with special celebrations involving Indonesian families simultaneously in five key cities: Batam, Bekasi, Malang, Bali & Pontianak on Sunday, 4 December 2016.
Marking the seventh edition this year, HARRIS Hotels’ Brand Manager – Stefano de Champeaux has big hopes for the annual event saying, “This is a beloved hotel brand which has been around for years and we’ve maintained extremely consistent communication around the healthy lifestyle movement. Furthermore families have always been key contributors to our business and we love having children around our hotels.”
From time to time HARRIS Hotels have also been in close relationship with bike communities all over the country and they have long supported this event – having called it many times the ‘Orange Day’ which falls every December of the year.
This year HARRIS DAY is aiming to attract ten thousand people nationwide, and especially with the newly improved carnival theme – more draw is expected.
