BTE: Tell us about the portfolio of IHG brands and why you think it’s of value to business travelers and travel managers.

SERGOT: At IHG Hotels & Resorts, we have a diverse customer base, and that means we need to have an equally diverse portfolio. Our brands cover everything from Luxury & Lifestyle brands like Regent, InterContinental and Hotel Indigo, to mainstream and premium brands like Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Crowne Plaza.
IHG is still growing, with its portfolio set to expand by a further 30 percent, with more than 1,800 hotels already signed in our development pipeline. This enables us to continue to provide travel managers with the diversity in choice they need to be successful.
