[FHD video and podcast below] Exclusive interview about Yoo Hotels & Resorts' expansion plans in Asia Pacific and beyond.

In this interview, filmed with Andrew Pang - Managing Partner of Yoo FK, on 20 February 2019, Steven Howard of asks what the press conference in Bangkok on Wednesday was all about, and why Yoo has chosen Bangkok for their regional HQ when they already have an 11-year old office in Hong Kong.

We discuss the company's expansion plans, why Yoo feels it is the right time to launch two new hotel brands, how the brands under Yoo differ, and what targets the company has in terms of the number of properties in the region and globally within the next few years.

Andrew tells us why Yoo chose to work with Onyx Hospitality and not one of the many other hotel management companies in the region, and we ask him to tell us more about their yoo2 project in Phuket which is expected to break ground later this year with opening scheduled for end-2020.

You will discover where the second Yoo hotel will be in this region, and Steven asks about the only Yoo hotel in the world that is currently open and how that property, which is in Brazil and managed by a different company, will work with future yoo2 and Yoo collection hotels in terms of loyalty programmes and the like.

 We also discuss how the company will name the hotels, and you will learn whether the Yoo hotels will be called Yoo hotels, or whether they will have their own name but be "managed by Yoo", or whether the company has other plans. We discuss all that and much, much more in the FHD video and podcast below.
