Belgium, Brussels. August 28, 2019

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.

A vibrant city full of stunning architecture, Tbilisi is growing in popularity among travelers. Many arrive for its lively arts and cultural scene, featuring a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs. The city also draws visitors in with its historic buildings, museums and galleries. It is a destination with an increasingly cosmopolitan atmosphere that invites people to explore.

As well as the under-development Radisson Tbilisi City Centre, Radisson Hotel Group currently has three properties in operation around Georgia - the Radisson Blu Hotel, Batumi; the Radisson Blu Iveria Hotel, Tibilisi; and the new Radisson Collection Hotel, Tsinandali Estate Georgia. The first Radisson RED will also open soon, bringing its upbeat style to the city's Old Town district.

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
