Carlson Rezidor Unveils Australasia Expansion Plans

Carlson Rezidor has unveiled plans to grow its portfolio in Australasia (Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands) to 15 20 hotels in the mid-term.

Having achieved accelerated growth in Asia Pacific in 2015, opening 10 hotels and 23 signings, Carlson Rezidor is on track to achieving its target of adding 100 operating hotels to its Asia Pacific portfolio by 2020.

The group currently operates four hotels in Australasia Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens Melbourne, Radisson Suites Sydney, the newly refurbished Radisson Blu Plaza Sydney and Radisson Blu Fiji Denarau Island. The Park Inn by Radisson Suva Fiji is scheduled to open in 2018.

Australasia is an integral part of Carlson Rezidors Asia Pacific expansion strategy and we are committed to growing our presence in this market by rolling out our brand portfolio and actively seeking conversion opportunities, said Andreas Flaig, executive vice president, Development, Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. In addition to addressing the millennial-minded segment by introducing our Radisson Red brand in metropolitan cities, we are exploring upscale resort opportunities along the Gold Coast for Radisson Blu, while growing our Park Inn by Radisson brand to capture the midscale segment.

The group is currently in negotiations with several developers to roll out Radisson Red in top tier cities such as Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
