Pullman, which was launched three months ago, aims to tap into Asia’s fast-growing business travel and conference market.

Accor says there will be 56 Pullman hotels operating in 23 countries by the end of the year, with the goal of hitting 300 properties by 2015, Accor Asia Pacific Chairman Michael Issenberg says.

The first Pullman hotel in China was opened in Dongguan, a city in southern Guangdong province, while another four will be opened in cities including Beijing and northern Tianjin.
