The addition of these hotels across our luxury and lifestyle portfolio is a meaningful contribution to IHG’s growth in Italy, which is a key market for us. It is also a reflection of the confidence our owners have in the success of our brands, as well as the trust our guests have in the experience they deliver. From our upper luxury Six Senses offering and glamour of the InterContinental life, right through to the originality of our Vignette Collection brand and the boutique neighbourhood charm of Hotel Indigo, our differentiated brands are well-positioned in a country like Italy; a market where we are seeing much investment from our partners in luxury and lifestyle projects – making the most of growing consumer appetite for refined travel and stay experiences. To support that, we are proud to have increased our local development infrastructure, with the appointment of Fabrizio Piolanti, Director Development, Italy.
