Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


Minor Hotels and NH Hotel Group are implementing key integration strategies, bringing all of their hotel brands under a single corporate umbrella. Initiatives include the transfer earlier this year of Minor Hotels’ Portugal and Brazil operations to NH Hotel Group and aligning brands so the geographic operating clusters can capitalize on brand expansion and rebranding opportunities, according to the companies.

"We are very happy to debut our luxury Anantara brand in Spain with the upcoming launch of Anantara Villa Padierna Marbella Benahavís Resort, which at the same time demonstrates our commitment to integrate Minor Hotels and NH portfolio of brands and operational expertise across our joint and expanding geographical footprint," said Dillip Rajakarier, CEO/Minor Hotels.
