SBG & IHG sign Agreement for new Holiday Inn Express, Canberra


Paul Salter, Managing Director SBG last week joined with Kenneth Macpherson, CEO IHG in Hong Kong to sign the Hotel Management Agreement for SBG’s new Holiday Inn Express hotel, Canberra.

Proposed for development in 2019, the new midscale hotel offering with up to 250 guest rooms will be built on the same site as the existing SBG-owned Crowne Plaza Hotel, and will be owned by SBG and operated by IHG.

Paul commented that ‘the opportunity to bring a differentiated hotel offering to Canberra with the Holiday Inn Express is an exciting development for the Canberra business and leisure travel markets, and further strengthens the relationship between SBG and IHG across multiple brands and markets’.
