“Ningbo is the perfect fit for the internationally renowned Radisson brand. The city’s emerging industrial sector and the success of the vast Ningbo International Port also make it one of Asia’s dynamic cities and a key business hub. Radisson Ningbo Beilun will cater to these sectors, fulfilling the rising demand for international upscale accommodation for business travelers,” Katerina Giannouka, president, Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group, said in a statement.
The launch of Radisson Ningbo Beilun falls in line with the Radisson brand's expansion plans across Asia-Pacific. This growth will focus on fast-growing cities in some of Asia’s largest and most populous countries, including China, India and Indonesia.
Radisson Ningbo Beilun will be the fourth Radisson hotel in Mainland China, joining existing properties in Shanghai, Suzhou and Tianjin. The signing also marks Radisson Hotel Group’s entry into Ningbo in the Yangtze River Delta Economic Zone.
