Pan Pacific Hotels Group’s Expansion to China

Pan Pacific Hotels Group (PPHG) is a well-established hotel company based in Singapore, which owns more than 30 hotels, resorts, and serviced suites in Asia Pacific and North America. Over the next five years, the Group hopes to expand its holdings and start buying and managing property in China, with a special interest in cities including Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Beijing, and Chengdu, among others. PPHG’s CEO, Patrick Imbardelli claims that China will be the biggest focus for growth in the company, for the company’s Pan Pacific and PARKROYAL brands. Imbardelli hopes that China will soon comprise a third of the Group’s properties.

Imbardelli plans to begin revealing new properties in China between 2012 and 2014. A Pan Pacific Serviced Suites is expected to open in Ningbo, China, in December 2012, and a PARKROYAL hotel is slated to open in Green City, Shanghai, in early 2013. Though the company is interested in growing, CEO Patrick Imbardelli is as concerned with growing at the right pace and finding the right brand for the right location. To this effect, the CEO and his team conduct due diligence before securing and opening new properties.
