Private Concert Spotlighted Member Benefits and Introduced Hilton World Tour Sweepstakes

June 27, 2016  |  This information originated in American English.

MCLEAN, Va. - Without a doubt, Tegan & Sara know how to rock Canada. Headlining after Indie Pop Duo JR JR this past Saturday, June 25, the Canada-born band helped fans and members of Hilton HHonors, the loyalty program for Hilton's 13 distinct brands, celebrate the unique benefits of the free-to-join membership program. The concert, which took place at Hilton Toronto, is part of the 2016 Hilton Concert Series - and was the series' first Canada concert.

From the pre-concert reception menu, which featured locally-inspired fare, to two intimate performances, Saturday's event provided 400+ attendees with an exclusive experience that only Hilton HHonors members can enjoy. To extend those unforgettable moments to more Hilton HHonors members this summer, Hilton introduced the Hilton World Tour sweepstakes. Now through August 31, 2016, Hilton HHonors members in Canada, the US and UK, who book directly with Hilton, have a chance to win two tickets to any Live Nation concert around the world. The three Grand Prize Winners (1 in each region) will also enjoy complimentary flights and a two-night stay at a nearby hotel within the Hilton portfolio. To participate and for alternate methods of entry, members can visit prior to booking travel. No purchase necessary. Restrictions apply.**

"While the 2016 Hilton Concert Series continues to rock on, we're excited to provide our Hilton HHonors members with another excuse to stop and play - with the Hilton World Tour sweepstakes," said Mark Weinstein, senior vice president and global head of Customer Engagement, Partnerships and Loyalty at Hilton Worldwide. "We know our guests and loyalty members appreciate personalized experiences, and so we designed this customizable sweepstakes, allowing the winners to choose their own concert, creating their own incredible, once-in-a-lifetime trip."
