Transcript HILTON INTERNATIONAL HOTELS- A REFLECTION OF AMERICA About three billion people live in today's world—comprising numerous nationalities, creeds and races struggling to understand each other. Of that three billion, millions are keenly aware of Hilton International. For in a very literal sense, every Hilton Hotel that rises represents America, and is, to many, the only aspect of our way of life available for scrutiny at close hand. Of the multitudes who watch our every move on the international scene, too vast a number have a distorted viewpoint regarding what America stands for. We accept our challenging role to show America in a favorable light to the people of other nations. How do we proceed with this task? By teaching managerial skills to men of vision in the lands where Hilton structures dominate the landscape... managerial skills so characteristic of a free enterprise society. By employing local personnel to staff our hotels and utilizing local materials to build them. The word "image" may have been overworked lately, but that is precisely what we are trying our best to project. The image of an America eager to roll up its sleeves, anxious to help its fellowmen. It's difficult for a country such as ours not to be abstract in the minds of those who speak other languages... and few people anywhere can successfully cope with abstraction. Most people grasp best that which is concrete; that which can be seen and walked around and touched. A Hilton Hotel, thanks to its physical dominance, more than meets these requirements, and thanks to the manner in which its continuing presence strengthens the local economy, fulfills the unexpressed need of lending a helping hand with no strings attached. Nine additional Hilton International hotels are under construction, scheduled for opening in the next two years. We are dedicated to the concept that they will be nine additional spokesmen for America. 32
