Fresh from its first acquisition in Japan a month ago, Singapore-based hospitality chain Park Hotel Group has set up its first Regional Sales Office in Tokyo as it looks for more opportunities to expand in Japan.

The fast-growing hospitality brand made its first foray into the Japanese hotel market in December 2008 with the acquisition of the Hilton Otaru in Hokkaido, which has been rebranded as Grand Park Otaru.

The 296-room hotel brings the number of properties under the group to a total of eight, including three in Singapore, three in China and one in Hong Kong.

Within Japan, Park Hotel Group is looking to expand into key Japanese cities such as Tokyo, Osaka and Okinawa.

 The Tokyo Regional Sales Office will promote Grand Park Otaru in the local domestic market and generate outbound business to the rest of the hotels within the group. It will be managed by two sales managers Mr Takashi Hirotani (covering West Japan) and Mr Takashi Sugawara (covering East Japan).

The Tokyo office is a prelude to a network of Regional Sales Offices to be operational from 1 February 2009 in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou to cover Greater China as well as one in Singapore to cover Southeast Asia and India.

Park Hotel Groups current stable of eight properties has more than 2,500 rooms under two brand tiers the five-star Grand Park and the four-star Park Hotel.

Park Hotel Group has plans to acquire 10 more hotels in the next few years, mainly in the Asia
Pacific region.
