Carlson Rezidor, one of the most dynamic hotel companies in the world, is a platinum sponsor at the upcoming Arabian Hotel Investment Forum (AHIC), to be held in Dubai from May 4th- 5th.
“The Middle East is a key market for us as we embark on our journey towards increasing the presence of our core brands—Radisson Blu and the Park Inn by Radisson in the region,” said Elie Milky, Director of Business Development Middle East & Africa, The Rezidor Hotel Group. “Our participation at AHIC has arisen out of our commitment to being a key player in the region’s ambitious drive towards economic diversification.”
The Rezidor Group currently operates 30 hotels in countries across the Middle East and North Africa, with more than 20 properties in the development pipeline.
“The Middle East—with the GCC in particular—are unique markets as several governments have identified tourism and hospitality as sectors with the potential for immense economic growth,” said Milky. “The support of the government creates a unique environment that not only encourages growth within the tourism industry, but also ensures its longevity.”
Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & Chief Executive Officer and Elie Younes, Senior Vice President, Head of Group Development of the Rezidor Hotel Group are set to provide insights on the global tourism industry and growth markets for hospitality at AHIC.
“Our participation at AHIC—and the upcoming Arabian Travel Market—will give us an opportunity to catch up with our existing partners from across the Middle East. We look forward to building our existing relationships as we formalize our development plans for the region,” conclude Milky.
