Radisson Hotel Group is on extensive expansion, introducing new brand, making F&B alliances, adopting new cutting edge technology and is offering more customised services in South Asia to meet its Destination 2022 targets.

Speaking on the sidelines of Hotel Investment Conference South Asia (HICSA) 2019 in Mumbai, Katerina Giannouka, President, Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “South Asia has been key to our Destination 2022 development plan. We have created a series of transformational, innovative new initiatives covering all aspects of our business. We will be launching EMMA, a revolutionary global unified technology platform in June, that will work as unified information and sales point linking all our properties and services, including reservations and loyalty program. New contemporary and creative hospitality brand Radisson Red will open in Mohali in a year’s time. The brand suits the huge millennial population of India and caters to their needs of high energy space, complicated travel and last minute booking”

The new and a corresponding app with embedded EMMA will offer premiere online experience by letting a customer make a choice of a particular room and service at a particular Radisson hotel. Seven new hotels opening last year have taken the Radisson portfolio to 94 hotels in 75 locations in India.
