The dis­cus­sions fo­cused on the fur­ther growth of tourism and hospi­tal­ity in Kuwait and the re­gion, and in­cluded Ac­cor’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Gau­rav Bhushan, as well as other team mem­bers.

Sev­eral ideas were dis­cussed re­gard­ing the ac­ti­va­tion and de­vel­op­ment of tourism in Kuwait, and the en­hance­ment of op­por­tu­ni­ties for co­op­er­a­tion with France and other coun­tries in which the Ac­cor man­ages ho­tels. The spot­light was placed on the un­der­served de­mand for econ­omy and mid­scale ho­tels.

In­deed, Ac­tion Ho­tels plc is al­ready the lead­ing owner, de­vel­oper and as­set man­ager of branded three- and four-star ho­tels in prime lo­ca­tions in the Mid­dle East and Aus­tralia. The Com­pany’s port­fo­lio cur­rently con­sists of 14 op­er­at­ing ho­tels, of which 10 are in the Mid­dle East and four in Aus­tralia. This in­cludes 11 ho­tels man­aged by Ac­cor across three flags, ibis, Mer­cure and Novo­tel. Mean­while, the Mer­cure Riyadh Olaya and the Novo­tel Dubai Creek are set to open in 2019.
