Hotel in Munich Confirms Renewal of Partnership With 'Golden Tablet' for 2014

Munich Marriott Hotel Continues Partnership With Pharmaceutical Awards Ceremony

MUNICH, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Aug 21, 2014) - Marriott has confirmed its continued partnership into 2014 for the "Golden Tablet," the German pharmaceutical industry's coveted award ceremony.

Since 2008, the Munich Marriott Hotel has supported this important event, which honors innovation and sustainability in Germany, with its professional catering services and by providing modern hotel accommodations in Munich. The "Golden Tablet" award ceremony will be held at the Deutsches Museum in Munich on September 9, 2014 and is considered one of the most important awards for innovation and sustainability within the pharmaceutical industry and is often referred to as the "Pharma Oscar".

"We are very excited about this partnership with the 'Golden Tablet,'" said Henning Brinkman, who as Market Sales Manager of the Munich Marriott Hotel, oversees event venues at the hotel. "It provides an ideal setting to present ourselves to our guests and attendees of the awards ceremony as a brilliant host and caterer."

As part of the partnership, Munich Marriott Hotel is offering ceremony guests, speakers and officials with hotel rooms at the Courtyard by Marriott Munich City Center, one of the Munich hotels near Marienplatz, and the Munich Airport Marriott Hotel.

"Marriott hotels supported the award ceremony with catering for the first time in 2008," said Dieter Jung, CEO of Eurecon Verlag GmbH, organizer of the "Golden Tablet" event and editor of the journal PharmaBarometer, the magazine for innovation and sustainability, in expressing his pleasure with the Munich hotel's decision. "We are looking forward to preparing the award ceremony with Marriott and their innovative ideas, which enrich this festive event. Today we are already eagerly awaiting the proposals for a creative, culinary pampering of our guests."

Basis for the award of the "Golden Tablet" and the award for "most innovative product" is the pharmaceutical market research study, which was carried out by Harris Interactive for the first time this year and included again in 10 medical specialties.

Media partner for the awards ceremony is the physician portal Coliquio, which includes more than 100,000 registered doctors. For more information (in German) about the award, visit www.goldenetablette.de.
