India is a very important market for us. It is the biggest single country within our portfolio… There is a lot of growth in India. It is a very high growth potential market,” Radisson Hotel Group President Asia Pacific Katerina Giannouka told reporters here.
The company, which enjoys an occupancy rate of over 67 percent, said it signs 12-15 hotels every year and opens around 7-10 hotels each year.
She added that the company is on track to have 100 hotels operational by later this year.

In India, it has 5 brands and will be launching its first Radisson Red hotel targeted at the millennials, in the next 12 months.
The 160 room hotel is under construction at Mohali which will be its flagship Radisson Red and will later add a 350 room hotel in Noida under the same brand.
