IHG unveils Build for Success online development tool for Holiday Inn brand

InterContinental Hotels Group launches Build for Success, an online platform, created to enable faster, more efficient development of Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express hotels across the Asia, Middle East and Africa region.

Aimed at providing hotel owners and developers with the knowledge, tools and resources needed for the successful development of a Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express hotel, Build for Success provides a complete overview of the end-to-end design and development process. Upon the signing of a hotel management or franchise agreement, hotel owners and their teams can enjoy access to the platform which will help them:

  • Understand the various stages involved in the development process and get a birds-eye view of the completed project.
  • Ensure their hotel design is consistent with guests expectations.
  • Reduce their design consultancy needs and corresponding costs.
  • Reduce their development and design risk.
  • Maximise revenue generating space in the hotels.
  • Increase speed to market.

The platform, created by IHG exclusively for use by its hotel owner and development partners, is designed to be customizable according to local market requirements. Owners can directly download design files and adapt drawings to their sites. This ensures consistent brand standards across hotels whilst allowing room for adaptation to the needs of specific locations across the region.
