Strategic acquisition combines Worldhotels and Associated Luxury Hotels International
Worldhotels will remain focussed on the individual business traveller, leisure and meeting sector solutions, and its 350 hotels and resorts around the world.
Associated Luxury Hotels chairman David Gabri said the company will operate ALHI and Worldhotels as separate divisions, initially keeping the memberships and operations of each organisation separate.
“Bringing together these two highly respected and established companies enables us to better serve the evolving needs of our member hotels, resorts and emerging brands, plus their management and ownership groups,” said Gabri.
“Additionally, this combination will eventually greatly benefit the broad base of customers we serve in the meetings, convention and incentive, as well as the business travel and leisure travel sectors.
“Member hotels of both companies and their guests will benefit from the expanded access, markets, and global sales and marketing capabilities of a proven and passionate client service approach with a broader global footprint.”
