Hospitality company Pan Pacific Hotels Group has extended its strategic partnership with HRS. The partnership aims to explore growing opportunities in corporate travel, both globally and regionally. Singapore-based Pan Pacific Hotels Group is growing its global footprint — the group now has properties across 29 key markets in Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America. 

“We operate in a fast-paced world where customer needs are constantly evolving, so keeping abreast of these is critical to our business,” Cinn Tan, Pan Pacific's chief sales & marketing officer, said in a statement. “HRS and Pan Pacific Hotels Group share a common mission of putting customers first. This partnership reinforces our ongoing goal to streamline vital processes to everyday hotel program management.”

Corporate travel managers are committed to offering their travelers quality hotels in the right locations and at the right negotiated price, said Frédéric Dumoulin, SVP of HRS Asia Pacific. More corporate travel programs count on HRS to find these options around the world.

“Beyond those elements, hotels and corporations increasingly seek more automated, seamless processes that enhance distribution efficiencies,” he continued. “This ultimately helps make the traveler’s journey easier.”

Pan Pacific Hotels Group manages nearly 50 properties across key cities including Singapore, Beijing, Sydney and London. Business travel spending in Asia Pacific totaled $615.4 billion in 2018, and is projected to grow by 5.8 percent annually through 2023 per Global Business Travel Association estimates.
