Radisson Hotel Group grows with 70 signings and openings in EMEA

Radisson Hotel Group’s (RHG) third quarter included key expansions across its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) portfolio, reaching more than 50 hotel signings and nearly 30 openings year-to-date.

Elie Younes, global chief development officer, said, “Our initiatives are increasingly relevant to our guests and investment partners. We are thankful and grateful to our owners for their continued trust in our people and brands. We commit to continue creating more possibilities to our guests and opportunities to our owners as we slowly enter a transition recovery period for the travel industry.”

Key EMEA milestones achieved in Q3 include:

  • The opening of central London’s first Radisson RED hotel, Radisson RED London Greenwich The O2
  • Strong expansion in Morocco with the signing of seven new hotels, of which five already opened during the summer, adding 1600 rooms. This brings RHG’s Moroccan portfolio to 10 hotels, fast-tracking its strategy to reach 15 hotels in operation and under development in the country by 2025
  • Doubling of the group’s presence in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, by adding nearly 1000 rooms and serviced apartments in Thakher City
  • Signing of the group’s second Radisson Collection property in Sochi, Russia, and opening of two exceptional Radisson Collection properties in Seville and Milan, marking the brand’s introduction in Spain and further expansion in Italy, respectively
  • Swift global expansion of Radisson Individuals to more than 20 hotels across EMEA in one year since the brand was established, including Greece’s first Radisson Individuals property, Anda Hotel Athens, a member of Radisson Individuals
