Radisson Hotel Group is proud to announce the signing of the first Radisson-branded hotel in Georgia, further driving the expansion of the group's upscale brand across Europe, the Middle East & Africa (EMEA). The Radisson Tbilisi City Centre is set to arrive in Georgia's capital in 2021.

Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer for Radisson Hotel Group, said:"We are excited to bring a Radisson to Georgia which will complement the three existing properties that we have in the country, including the recently opened Radisson Collection. A warm welcome for our owners, Block Invest, to our family''

Alongside 200 guest rooms, the Radisson Tbilisi City Centre will also feature a restaurant, a bar and a meeting space equipped with the latest audio-visual technology (not to mention free high-speed Wi-Fi). With its variety of facilities, the hotel is expected to attract both business and leisure guests to the center of Georgia's capital city.

The Radisson Tbilisi City Centre will boast a spectacular downtown location, putting guests right in the heart of this historic city. The hotel will be the ideal starting point for visitors to explore Tbilisi and its many attractions, shopping centers and offices.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
