IHG Hotels & Resorts has achieved a significant milestone in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region with 1,000 hotels open. This accomplishment underscores the company’s accelerated growth strategy in the dynamic Asian market.

IHG has a comprehensive brand portfolio catering to a range of guest preferences. From established names such as Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza to newer additions Hotel Indigo and the Vignette Collection, IHG offers a range of accommodation options.

Recognising the potential in the luxury and lifestyle segment, the company prioritises investment in this area, which now represents a significant portion (22%) of its global development pipeline.

The hotel giant is seeking opportunities to expand its brand presence in APAC through hotel conversions, further solidifying its position in the region.

Capitalising on the booming travel market

According to IHG, the APAC region is poised for the fastest growth in global passenger traffic, fuelled by relaxed travel restrictions and the expansion of flight routes and airlines.

IHG is positioned to capitalise on this surge with a robust pipeline exceeding 700 hotels across 13 brands and 22 countries.
