UK: The Guild of Travel Management Companies (GTMC) has announced that IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) is its latest industry partner.

IHG now has three extended stay brands in its portfolio - Staybridge Suites, Candlewood Suites and the new Atwell Suites flag.

As a GTMC Industry Partner, IHG "has the opportunity to build upon its strong profile in the business travel market and will undoubtedly add substantial value to the GTMC hotel partnership programme and strategy group. IHG will participate in a number of high-profile networking events and will work with GTMC members in resolving common industry issues".

Adrian Parkes, chief executive of GTMC, said: "We are really excited to welcome IHG to the GTMC.  Our members are keen to work with our global and domestic hotel brands to improve products and services for the business travel sector and the business traveller. Having IHG as a contributing partner to our Hotel Strategy Group will help significantly with the common industry issues we are hoping to address. The IHG portfolio of brands is very important to our members and their clients and I am sure our partnership will assist greatly in the development of strong bilateral relationships. The partnership will also offer opportunities for the IHG team to work closely with our Conference & Events strategy group."

Debbie Male, head of Sales Europe, IHG, said: "We know that business travel is fundamental to our business and we're really excited to announce our partnership with GTMC today. This is a great opportunity to continue the work already underway to strengthen our role within the business travel market and meet the needs of modern business travellers."
