In Germany, IHG works with Multiple Development Agreement partners, such as UBM. Germany is one of the world’s top inbound travel destination in 2016, and domestic travelers are increasingly choosing to stay at midscale brands, fueling demand for Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts, an engine of growth for IHG. 

“Reaching 100 hotels open or signed in Germany is an important milestone for IHG,” Angela Brav, CEO of Europe for IHG, said in a statement. “This has been a great year for growth for IHG across Europe, and we’ve seen particular success in Germany, one of our key markets...We’re looking forward to rolling out more Next Generation hotels across Germany and the rest of Europe.”

IHG has 65 hotels open in Germany and 35 further properties in the pipeline due to open in the next three to five years including Holiday Inn Dusseldorf City Toulouser All, Holiday Inn Dusseldorf–Hafen, Holiday Inn Express Berlin – Alexanderplatz and Holiday Inn Express Cologne - City Centre.
