China Tourism Group rolls out team for the smooth hosting of Beijing Winter Olympics

Three main Olympic Villages – two in Beijing and another in Zhangjiakou – were officially opened on January 27 to host next month’s mega-event Beijing Winter Olympics.

The Beijing Winter Olympics 2022 are being held with the slogan “Together for a Shared Future”.

International athletes, technical officers and journalists who will be involved in the 51 Winter Olympic Games and 48 Winter Paralympic sports will be staying at the Zhangjiakou Winter Olympics Village.

As the main provider of accommodation and catering for the Beijing Winter Olympics in the Zhangjiakou area, the China Tourism Group’s 2,000-strong team will provide the major services to ensure the smooth hosting of the Beijing Winter Olympics.

In addition to being entrusted with the management of athletes’ apartments in the village, the main reception hotels in Zhangjiakou – such as the Metropark Hotel Xueruyi Zhangjiakou, the Kew Green Hotel Xueruyi Zhangjiakou and the Grand MetroPark Hotel Xingyuan Zhangjiakou – are under the direct operation and management of CTG Hotel Holdings Corporation Ltd.

CTG will also provide services including tea breaks and food delivery for athletes in the Genting Snow Park, the National Cross Country Skiing Center, the National Ski Jumping Center and the National Biathlon Center in Zhangjiakou Area.

Following the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, CTG will now continue to provide quality accommodation and catering services for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

“It is our united aspiration to host a successful Winter Olympics. The preparations for the Winter Olympics have come to a critical moment for the final sprint,” CTG chairman Chen Yin said during an inspection of the service team’s preparations in the Zhangjiakou Winter Olympics Village on January 11.

He also said that CTG will contribute to successfully hosting a “simple, safe and wonderful” Winter Olympics.

To ensure the successful opening of the Zhangjiakou Winter Olympics Village on January 27, the service team of China Tourism Group participated in all-factor tests at the end of 2021 to check the preliminary preparatory work and successfully completed the test of receiving nearly 10,000 people dining in the athletes and staff dining halls, as well as the catering service testing of the Genting and Guyangshu venues.

The Zhangjiakou Winter Olympics Village officer highly has recognised the professionalism of the CTG service team for the Winter Olympics.

CTG tourist vehicles will also be fully deployed to provide transportation for the Games having successfully transported 16,000 people to designated places.

The “Passionate Snow, a Shared Championship for 300 million People Engaging in Ice Activities” held by CTG Travel Services Corporation Ltd aims to promote the high-quality development of China’s ice and snow tourism after the Olympics have concluded.

Every CTG member is ready to break through the limitation, contribute and expect brilliant shining moments of the Winter Olympics.

The China Tourism Group will be always with you “Together for a Shared Future”.
