Radisson Hotel Group has outlines plans to add 30 hotels and over 5,000 rooms to its portfolio across Europe, the Middle East and Africa in 2021.

Openings include seven properties under the group’s growing Radisson Collection brand in France, Italy, Spain, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, with new locations including Seville and Lyon.

Last month the Grand Hotel Savoia Cortina d’Ampezzo in northern Italy became the latest member of the Radisson Collection, following an extensive renovation project.

Radisson Hotel Group opened over 20 properties in the EMEA region in 2020, including the first hotel under its new Radisson Individuals brand in Bath.

Elie Younes, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer EMEA, Radisson Hotel Group said in a YouTube update that the group now has around ten properties signed or in advanced discussion for the new brand.

“Throughout 2020, while many hotel groups put their development plans on hold, we remained optimistic and relentless to create more possibilities for guests and opportunities for owners,” said Younes.

“With the launch of Radisson Individuals and the reinforcement of our strategy for Serviced Apartments, we stay relevant to our owners and guests, and this is down to three key factors – innovation, simplification, and empowering our people.

“2021 will likely be a transition year with a challenging first half and an expected recovery thereafter, and I see it as a year of further opportunities for a better future. We thank our guests, owners, and team members for their continued support, trust and generosity.”
