IHG plans Tunisia debut and Egypt expansion amid recovery of tourism sector

The global hotel group is scheduled to add 48 properties to its Mena portfolio over the next three to five years

Intercontinental Hotels Group, the owner of Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn chains, is weighing opportunities to enter Tunisia and further expand in Egypt as tourism in Tunisia recovers, the National reports.

Talks are underway to rebrand some of the local hotels in Tunisia to its Indigo, Holiday Inn and Intercontinental brands, though no timeline is set for the company’s debut, Matthew Tripolone, IHG vice president of development in the Middle East and Africa, told The National.

“We are excited about Egypt and we’re in discussion for a few projects there as well as new markets in North Africa, such as Tunisia,” he said.
