Carlson Rezidor delivers boost to India's mid-market sector

CARLSON Rezidor Hotel Group will focus on the midscale segment in its expansion plans for India, with plans for a vocational training school to support its growth.


Simon C Barlow, president, Asia-Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, said: “The Indian domestic market is emerging. The price and location is becoming more important for the traveller. So in our expansion plans we are doing fewer five-star (brand) properties like Radisson Blu and will be opening more mid-market brands like Park Inn by Radisson and Country Inns & Suites by Carlson.”


“We are also holding discussions with another partner along the same lines to push our mid-market brands in west India,” he added.


The hotel group signed a partnership agreement with Bestech Hospitalities in April 2014 for 43 more Park Inn by Radisson hotels in north and central India by 2024, according to a press release.


It is also looking to open a vocational training school near New Delhi so as to meet the manpower requirements of its upcoming mid-market hotels. It is expected to open by end-2016.


Carlson Reizdor wants to expand its portfolio of hotels in India to 100 by 2016 and 200 by 2020.
