New Delhi, June 15, 2016: AccorHotels and Cyberabad Convention Centre Private Limited (a Joint Venture between Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation Ltd – TSIIC Ltd and Emaar Properties PJSC, Dubai), today announced the renewal of their agreement for the management of the Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre and the Hyderabad International Convention Centre. This follows the successful completion of a ten-year commitment to manage and operate the 287-room hotel and the 15-acre state-of-the-art convention facility in Hyderabad.
Both facilities operate in a complementary yet distinctive manner, guided by Novotel’s brand promise of meeting the needs of everyone, anywhere and anytime. Cyberabad Convention Centre and AccorHotels also announced a refurbishment programme for the hotel and the convention centre to build on the complex’s current position as South Asia’s most recognizable and modern convention facility.
Located in Hyderabad’s IT and Business district, Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre is a 45 minutes’ drive from the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport. The hotel is connected to South Asia’s finest and truly world-class, purpose-built venue renowned for its operational excellence and world class convention facilities, the Hyderabad International Convention Centre. The Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre is spread over 15 acres with 287 rooms to offer a resort-like ambience with an outdoor pool, lawns and rejuvenation facilities.
This announcement comes on the heels of the tenth anniversary of Novotel in India. Novotel today enjoys a strong presence with 13 hotels located in key cities across the country. Based on AccorHotels’ current expansion plans, the brand is poised for significant growth over the next few years and is at the cornerstone of AccorHotels’ India development pipeline with another 14 new Novotels expected to open on the next few years.
