EVT says time is right for further international expansion

Singapore's Hotel Telegraph to be positioned under EVT's ICbE stable

EVT has revealed its vision to expand its Hotels & Resorts collection into international markets. Brands under the overarching EVT include QT, Rydges, Atura and Independent Collection by EVT (ICbE).

QT Hotels already has established properties in New Zealand, in Auckland, Wellington and Queenstown.

The strategic move follows a record year for EVT’s Hotels & Resorts division, delivering record average room rates and achieving greater than fair market share in Australia and New Zealand.

Leading the charge in exploring and establishing EVT’s hotel presence abroad is Norman Arundel, Director of Hotels & Resorts, a seasoned professional in the hospitality space.

Over the past year, EVT conducted comprehensive research to identify key markets for expansion. The initial focus for QT, Rydges and Atura will be on Southeast Asia (SEA). LyLo, EVT’s innovative social accommodation brand will concentrate on market expansion into Australia and assess other international markets that attract Gen Z travellers.

“It is the right time to execute our international expansion strategy as we now offer a diverse range of hotel experiences,” Jane Hastings, CEO of EVT commented,

“By owning, developing, and operating hotels, EVT occupies a distinctive position. Coupled with our market leading capabilities, we can customise, innovate, and demonstrate above market results for partners. We are confident in the potential of our hotel brands to make a significant impact in new international markets, whilst recognising there is still potential for growth across ANZ.”

In a first step, EVT Hotels & Resorts has secured its first international hotel management agreement in the heart of one of Asia’s top-performing hotel markets, Singapore. On 1 December 2023, EVT commenced operations of Hotel Telegraph one of Singapore’s prime landmark hotels, as part of the ICbE.

Arundel shared his optimism about the opportunities that lie ahead:

“We are proud to announce our first management agreement in Singapore – a significant milestone in our expansion strategy and ahead of expectation.,” Arundel said. “Hotel Telegraph’s prime location serves as a strong foundation to showcase EVT’s expertise and innovative solutions. We are ready to deliver our world-class experiences and extend the strength of our brands beyond Australia and New Zealand.
