The partnership, which began in 2011, continues Hilton HHonors' presence as the exclusive hotel partner of the organization.
As part of the partnership, Hilton HHonors will continue to serve as the title sponsor for Skate America, the annual International Skating Union (ISU) Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series event held in the United States. 2013 Hilton HHonors Skate America, which will feature a field of more than 50 top skaters from around the world, is scheduled for Oct. 18-20, at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, with the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Detroit-Dearborn serving as the official host hotel for the event.
"U.S. Figure Skating is thrilled to continue its relationship with Hilton HHonors," U.S. Figure Skating Executive Director David Raith said. "Beyond financial support, having a partner like Hilton HHonors helps promote the Olympic movement among fans, and supports athletes as they journey toward realizing their Olympic dreams."
"Through this partnership, we are pleased to provide continued support for U.S. Figure Skating and all of its athletes," said Jeff Diskin, executive vice president, commercial services, Hilton Worldwide." Supporting the U.S. Figure Skating team not only allows us to support the dreams of Team USA, but also gives Hilton HHonors the chance to connect our guests to the Games, and this team, wherever they are in the world."
