The hotel group is working towards its five-year strategic roadmap — Destination 2022 — a five year strategic road map, to expand its base in India.
As part of that plan, this year, Radisson has already signed four new hotels Park Plaza Amritsar, Radisson Greater Noida, Radisson Gurugram Sohna Road City Center, and Park Inn by Radisson Kashipur. They also plan to open their 100 hotel in India this year. They also plan to make an entry into a series of fast-growing Tier II and III cities, as well as emerging areas such as North East and Central India.
New hotels set to open within the next 12 months include India’s first Radisson RED hotel, located in Mohali, which will usher in an exciting new era of contemporary, creative hospitality to India.
Talking about their big plans in South Asia, Katerina Giannouka, president, Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group, said, “When we embarked on Destination 2022, our five-year strategic vision, we knew that South Asia would be a key part of its success.”
The Group is also rolling out seven new global brand programmes, including Rad Family, Radisson Meetings and Welcome India, which is dedicated to outbound Indian guests.
The expansion of the group’s South Asian portfolio will also create more than 4,000 new job opportunities over the next three years.
