The Dubai-based Rotana hotel group had a major presence at World Travel Market last week with Omer Kaddouri, President and Chief Executive, holding forth on the Wednesday.
He was using the Excel show opportunity to begin discussions regarding opening London properties.
The large stand was a clear demonstration of the Rotana thinking.
Kaddouri said that he wanted to take the essentially Middle East centred group global with a plan to open properties in major cities such as Paris, Frankfurt, Moscow, New York, Shanghai, Sydney and Melbourne "in the medium to long term".
In the meantime, Rotana will be introducing 12 new hotels between now and the end of next year, boosting its current portfolio of about 50 properties. "A hundred hotels by 2020 is how we're coining it but I think we'll be able to do better." www.rotana.com
