As Marriott and Hilton battle acquisition integrations and new asset-light identities, respectively, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is establishing itself as a leader in hospitality tech innovation and developing itself into a nimbler, more diversified company.
In Skift Research’s latest report out Tuesday, A Deep Dive Into IHG 2019: Leading in Tech Innovation and Staying Nimble, we focus on the company’s recent developments in technological solutions for hotel owners via IHG Concerto as well as how the company has been diversifying its business in terms of geographies and brands. We also take a look at renovation programs dedicated to strengthening the Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express brands and provide hotel owners’ perspectives on the changes.
While we don’t know precisely when the next recession will occur, our research indicates that IHG is strengthening relations with hotel owners, investing in areas that elevate guest experiences and drive loyalty, and diversifying its own business. Its key areas of focus are making it a smarter, better hotel company that is well-positioned no matter what the future looks like.
