    POSTED November 11, 2016

Four Kimpton Hotels in Florida are partnering with Bowers & Wilkins to give groups with the ability to enjoy the sounds of the destination. The participating hotels are: EPIC, Miami; Surfcomber Miami, South Beach; Vero Beach Hotel & Spa; and Seafire Resort & Spa, Grand Cayman.

"We have incredible respect and admiration for Kimpton's uniquely crafted style and design, along with its emphasis on providing an exceptional guest experience,” says Tyler Fairchild, director of brand marketing & business development, Bowers & Wilkins. “Experience is everything for Bowers & Wilkins. We hope the combination of Kimpton’s stunning properties and Bowers & Wilkins premium headphones will make for an unforgettable group event.”

The program will kick off in a few weeks, and delegates visiting the select locations have the opportunity to receive a complimentary set of Bowers & Wilkins headphones.

Eligibility is based on group size, and the dates and number of nights booked.

“Our aim is to consistently surprise and delight guests with innovative programs that enrich their experience with us,” says Eric Jellson, area director of marketing and strategy, Kimpton Hotels of Florida and Grand Cayman. “To achieve that, we have been fortunate to work with a number of leading brands with Bowers & Wilkins, being the latest and greatest. Our guests love all things high-tech designed to enhance their personal hobbies and interests, including music and more.”
