has launched Voco ho­tels, which comes from the Latin mean­ing “to in­vite” or “call to­gether”. Voco will sit along­side IHG’s Crowne Plaza Ho­tels and is in­tended to work equally well in both cities and re­sorts. IHG hopes to open more than 200 Voco ho­tels over the next ten years.

IHG has yet to de­cide which of the Prin­ci­pal Ho­tels it re­cently ac­quired in the UK will be­come Voco Ho­tels and which will be as­sim­i­lated into other IHG brands.

The first sign­ing for the Voco brand is the Water­mark Ho­tel and Spa Gold Coast, Surfers Par­adise, Aus­tralia. The 388-room prop­erty is about to be ac­quired by IHG’s part­ner, SB&G, which cur­rently owns five other IHG ho­tels in Aus­tralia and will open un­der the Voco brand in late 2018.
