González, President & CEO of The Rezidor Hotel Group AB (publ) (REZT:STO) & Chairman of the Global Hotel Steering Committee of the  Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, together with his Executive Committee, will provide a detailed overview of the company’s business strategy and operating plan over the next 5 years. 

Rezidor, currently the sixth-largest hotel group in Europe, will build on its already strong competitive position in the EMEA region, while leveraging its strategic partnership with Carlson Hotels to further strengthen its powerful brands. It also aims to align its global brand portfolio around its leading brand, Radisson, to drive the expansion plans, and marketing, commercial and operational initiatives.

“Over the next five years, we will build on our unique service heritage of making every moment matter for our guests, owners, shareholders and employees by being a true host and best partner,” says Mr. González. “Success of our 5-year operating plan means that whenever a guest plans a trip, whenever an investor or owner thinks of a partner, whenever a person wants to work in hospitality – they will all think of our company first.”

On 17th January, Rezidor’s Executive Committeewill present an insight-based concrete operating plan build up on 25 business initiatives focused on Portfolio Management; Brand & Product; Marketing, Sales & Revenue Management; Organization, Talent & Reputation; Best Systems; Cost Advantage and Scale.

The EBITDA Margin is expected to reach 13-15% by the end of 2022. As investments are needed to successfully achieve these targets, the performance will be modest over Phase 1 of the operating plan (2018 – 2020) where basics of growth will be put in place. Higher growth can be expected between year 2021 – 2022.

As part of the new global brand architecture launch,Rezidor will reposition 30-35 of its hotels with a total Capex of €140-150 million. The company will also invest €75-€80 million in fixtures, furniture and equipment (FF&E) and key money in new hotels. The business development strategy will focus on net opening of 13,000 new rooms.
