It is counted among the top 100 hotel companies in the world, offering a choice of 14 brands in 22 destinations across 4 continents with 10 regional offices.

Europe is also on the radar where the company recently signed a hotel in Italy and is considering 4 more projects in the region.

The Middle East and Africa are strategic markets for Swiss-Belhotel International with 17% of the global portfolio centered in the region. Mr. Laurent A.
