Milestone: IHG Opens 1000th Hotel in EMEAA Region
IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) has launched its 1000th hotel in the Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa (EMEAA) region with the opening of InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort in Vietnam.
This milestone comes as IHG continues its ambitious growth strategy across its newest and most geographically diverse region.
The 1000th opening adds to an already strong portfolio in EMEAA, with hotels across eight brands, working in partnership with more than 500 hotel owners.
IHG has an extensive development pipeline in EMEAA with 321 hotels (63,500+ rooms) set to open in the next 3-5 years.
IHG’s EMEAA region is playing a key role in the company’s ambitions to grow at pace in key global markets. The rollout of voco, IHG’s newest brand in the $40 billion upscale market, will begin in EMEAA, with a first signing already announced in Australia.
IHG plans to open more than 200 voco hotels globally over the next 10 years.
