Marriott International Reveal MEA Growth Plans

Marriott International recently announced growth plans for the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region following signings of more than 30 properties and over 5,000 rooms over the last 12 months.

The signings put Marriott on track to increase its regional portfolio to nearly 370 hotels, an increase of more than 50 percent over the next five years.

This will amount to more than 80,000 rooms across 21 brands, including the introduction of brands such as EDITION, Element and AC Hotels by Marriott to the region.

Additionally, the company and its property owners expect to add 30,000 new jobs over the next five years across the region.

“It is a really exciting time for the Middle East and Africa region’s travel and tourism sector,” said Alex Kyriakidis, president, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International. “With clear and ambitious visions set out by regional governments to grow and invest in the sector, the industry is thriving more than ever.”
