Hotel management contract specialist, Absolute Hotel Services (AHS), has signed a global partnership with Asian-based hospitality and tourism marketing development company, The Delivering Group, to help expand its hotel and resort management business In Asia Pacific, Greater China and North America.
AHS is one of the fastest growing hospitality management companies in the Asia Pacific region, Europe and Russia, with more than 100 hotels in its portfolio, including leading brands, Eastin Grand Hotels and Resorts and U Hotels and Resorts.
Jonathan Wigley, founder and CEO of AHS said: “We see strong growth in the mid to upper mid-scale hotel and resorts range through a combination of new builds, especially in mixed use developments, and residential projects looking to move to managed accommodation. We look forward to tapping into these opportunities with the help of The Delivering Group team.”
The Delivering Group was founded by travel and hospitality industry leaders Mark Simmons, Michael Yates and Joe Cauchi to partner with hotels/resorts, airlines, destinations, cruise operators, TMCs and other travel and tourism players in Asia Pacific to develop post-pandemic recovery strategies and re-energise their business.
Simmons said AHS had a clear and successful business strategy focused on delivering value through flexible hotel and resort management agreements and associated services. “It brings another important offering to our portfolio of services to owners and operators and immediate synergies between our respective strategies and business plans. This is the third major partnership announcement for The Delivering Group in recent months. In August, European-based Artificial Intelligence company HiJiffy, which specialises in AI-powered hotel chatbots, signed a worldwide partnership with us. And last month, hotel marketing consultancy Cube, which focuses on hotel revenue management and distribution, announced a global alliance with us,” he said.
Yates said the company would continue to look for opportunities with like-minded partners. “It means we can tailor recovery plans and business development strategies using our proprietary platform Good to Go with our partners to suit the specific needs of clients across a broader spectrum of hospitality and travel industry sectors,” he said.
