Guests at select Marriott locations can now enjoy various specially curated TED Talks and other TED-related media. Each quarter boasts a new topic, but each is intended to inspire guests through new innovations, travel and entrepreneurial ideas. Later in the year and next, Marriott hotels in Seattle, London, Dubai, Bangkok and Santiago plan to additionally host five TED Talks Fellows salons for guests to interact directly with TED speakers.
“At Marriott Hotels, everything we do is guided by our belief that travel expands the mind and triggers new and creative ways of thinking. We know that travelers today look for more in a hotel and we are bringing to life new innovations that help elevate guests’ stay to memorable experiences. TED content does not only entertain, but educates and engages on topics that are relevant to our guests. Together we are delivering a series of original content, events and experiences that will spark travelers’ creativity and inspire new perspectives,” said Matthew Carroll, vice president and global brand manager, Marriott Hotels.
“Marriott has created a space that is perfect for our global, creative and action-oriented community of Fellows. TED Fellows represent 90 countries all over the world, and are working at the forefronts of their domain — fellows are artists, doctors, scientists, entrepreneurs, inventors and beyond. Marriott’s hotels are there where we are, and the space they have built is enabling a true exchange of ideas,” said Shoham Arad, deputy director, TED Fellows.
Soon guests can access a collection of TED Talks, themed quotes and blogs through guestroom entertainment and WiFi. Original TED content created specifically for the partnership appears on Marriott Hotel social media. Additionally, meeting planners can take advantage of TED inspiration assets when planning corporate events.

Creating a wellness environment in the workplace is a terrific idea, and many companies acknowledge the benefits of providing health and wellness programs to employees. However, the concept is anything but new. More than a century ago, Johnson & Johnson offered its New Jersey-based employees access to an on-site health center and a fitness center with a swimming pool and basketball court. In the 1970s, the company followed with the launch of Live for Life, an on-site wellness program with “access to behavior modification tools and education on topics like nutrition, stress management and more.”
