Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has appointed hotel and hospitality specialists PEPR Agency as its partner to lead communications in Australia and New Zealand.
Hong Kong-headquartered Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group currently operates 36 hotels and nine residences in 24 countries and territories, with each property reflecting the Group’s oriental heritage.
