The continued growth of IHG’s Turkish market was marked by a “Tourism and Hospitality Trends Turkey” event on Tuesday 18e October at the InterContinental Istanbul, with over 50 investors and consultants in attendance. The event was sponsored by voco hotels, one of IHG’s newest and most successful premium brands, and its global expansion has occurred at a faster rate than any other IHG brand. Voco Hotels and IHG’s newest brand, Vignette Collection, a luxury collectible brand, are proving to be the most suitable for conversions and redevelopments.
