Radisson Hotel Group is to open its 100th property in India this year. The hospitality group is in its second year of Destination 2022, a five-year strategic operation plan.
As a part of this, Radisson signed 15 hotels in 2018 and an additional four properties in Amritsar (Park Plaza), Greater Noida (Radisson Greater Noida), Kashipur (Park Inn) and Sohna Road city (Radisson Gurugram) for 2019.
The first Radisson RED hotel is set to launch this year in Mohali, Punjab. Other two Radisson Red properties will be in Noida and New Gurgaon. The group is also focussing on emerging tier II and III cities in central India as well.
Zubin Saxena, Managing Director and Vice President of Operations, South Asia said, “South Asia is one of the world’s most dynamic regions, where huge populations meet soaring economic growth, creating unprecedented opportunities for investment and development.
“At Radisson Hotel Group, we have long since recognized the subcontinent’s vast potential, and it is no coincidence that we are now one of South Asia’s largest and most trusted hotel groups. We have very strong relationships with our owners and other stakeholders in South Asia, and we will continue to work tirelessly to drive profitability through operational excellence.”
The hotel group as part of the expansion will also introduce seven new global programmes, which include Rad family, Radisson Meetings and Welcome India that will cater to outbound Indian guests and ‘Hotel Centre of Excellence’ for all General Managers in India.
