Vancouverís Paradox Hotel: Gold Sponsor & Host Site For ELO Forum

ELO is pleased to announce that The Paradox Hotel will be a Gold Sponsor and the host site of the ELO Forum on November 15th. The ELO Vancouver Forum will return to an in-person gathering after two years of online events. Dr. Richard J. Goossen, Chairman, ELO, is pleased to have long-term ELO supporter, Joo Kim Tiah, CEO, TA Global, as an important part of this year’s event. 

The ELO Forum in Vancouver has a track record of success dating back to 2005. The purpose of the annual business conference is to connect, equip and celebrate entrepreneurial leaders. The Forums are supported by leading businesses and non-profit organizations. The Forums have over the years attracted top speakers from around the world, leading sponsors, and more than 5,000 attendees.

The Paradox Hotel, located in downtown Vancouver, was launched in April 2022 and is the flagship location for Paradox Hotel Group. Paradox Hotel Vancouver is framed by Vancouver’s iconic twisting tower designed by Arthur Erickson.

The Paradox brand was developed by a team of experienced hoteliers in Vancouver; both the hotel and global brand focus on creating a unique guest experience. Joo Kim Tiah explains that "as an industry leader, it was an opportune moment to realign and reinvent our business proposition to meet and adapt to the current needs and desires of the market." 

He continues, "Paradox Hotel Group was born out of an extensive study of this evolution of the hospitality industry. We have always wanted to consolidate our hotels, and the time to embark on this meaningful journey is right now. Our global teams possess decades of experience and an established network of industry partners, having developed and operated numerous high-profile hotels worldwide."

Paradox's Head of Brand Experience Lorraine Simonds adds that they "wanted to create a hotel concept that embodied the paradoxical spirit of Vancouver, where the brand was created; a city in which world-class luxury and laid-back lifestyles go hand-in-hand."

Paradox Hotel Group develops, operates, and markets exceptional boutique lifestyle hotels & resorts across the world. Paradox Hotel Vancouver is the first Paradox-branded hotel in Canada under the Paradox Hotel Group umbrella, including Summit Lodge Boutique Hotel and Aava Hotel in Whistler, and global locations Paradox Resort & Residences in Karon Beach Phuket, and Paradox Hotel Merchant Court at Clarke Quay in Singapore.
