Absolute Hotel Services & The Delivering Group sign global partnership

October 13, 2020 -

Strategic Partnership announced to develop and provide streamlined hotel management and branding services to drive growth in the mid and upper mid hotel, resort and serviced residence sectors   

BANGKOK, Thailand (13 October, 2020) – Hospitality management and branding specialist, Absolute Hotel Services, has signed a global partnership with Asian-based hospitality and tourism marketing development company, The Delivering Group, to help expand its hospitality management and branding services for hotels, resorts and serviced residences in Asia Pacific, Greater China and North America. 

Founded by highly regarded hospitality entrepreneur  Jonathan Wigley, Absolute Hotel Services (AHS) is one of the fastest growing hospitality management and branding companies in the Asia Pacific region, Europe and Russia, with more than 100 hotels in its portfolio, including leading brands, Eastin Hotels & Residences, Eastin Grand Hotels & Resorts, U Hotels and Resorts, Travelodge Asia and Vienna House Asia

As a medium-size private company, backed by publicly listed global capital contributor U City Public Company, AHS prides itself on its strong and enduring client relationships, local market connections, transparent and easy-to-execute management agreements and low operating costs.     

Headquartered in Bangkok, with regional offices in Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Hong Kong, India, Russia and Austria, AHS has driven strong growth in markets with strong domestic tourism, reducing its exposure to short term international market shocks such as Covid-19. 

Mr Wigley, AHS Founder & CEO, said he was excited to be joining forces with The Delivering Group (DG) team who bring strong market insights and connections, based on many years of experience in the tourism and hospitality industry across Asia Pacific. 

“We see strong growth in the mid to upper scale hotel, resort and serviced residence range through a combination of new builds and conversion opportunities, especially in mixed use developments, and residential projects looking to move to managed accommodation,” he said. “We look forward to tapping into these opportunities with the help of The Delivering Group team as a great addition to our other global and regional partnerships.”  

The Delivering Group was founded by travel and hospitality industry leaders Mark Simmons, Michael Yates and Joe Cauchi to partner with hotels/resorts, airlines, destinations, cruise operators, TMCs and other travel and tourism players in Asia Pacific to develop post-pandemic recovery strategies and re-energise their business.      

Mr Simmons said AHS had a clear and successful business strategy focused on delivering value through flexible hotel and resort management agreements and associated services. “It brings another important offering to our portfolio of services to owners and operators and immediate synergies with our strategies and their vision and business plans,” he said. 

Simmons added, “This is the third major partnership announcement for The Delivering Group in recent months. In August, European-based Artificial Intelligence company HiJiffy, which specialises in AI-powered hotel chatbots, signed a worldwide partnership with the Group. 

And last month, hotel marketing consultancy Cube, which focuses on hotel revenue management and distribution, announced a global alliance with The Delivering Group.  

Mr Yates said The Delivering Group would continue to look for opportunities with like-minded partners. “It means we can tailor recovery plans and business development strategies using our proprietary platform Good to Go with our partners to suit the specific needs of clients across a broader spectrum of hospitality and travel industry sectors,” he said.
