DEAD SEA, Jordan - In support of children with autism, staff at King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre managed by Hilton ("KHBTCC") recently celebrated International Autistic Pride Day with a comprehensive awareness and learning day at Jordan Specialized Centre for Autism, based in Amman.

Ten team members from Jordan's biggest Convention Centre enjoyed a knowledge building early session at the Centre followed by a meet and greet conducted tour of the facilities, hosted by the Centre's Principal Ala'a Saadieh. The exercise was arranged as part of KHTBCC's team member community involvement programme, managed by the Centre's Blue Energy committee, which celebrates the company's values by engaging in activities that enrich and help their local communities.

Kamel Ajami, country manager, Jordan, Hilton Worldwide said, "Staff at King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre managed by Hilton regularly take their work based passion for hospitality and service into the local Jordan community and the visit to the Specialist Centre for Autism is another terrific example of how we connect with local charities and causes."
