Sofia, Bulgaria – 29 July 2015 – Lots of sun, fine sandy beaches on the Black Sea and safe snow layers in the mountains: Bulgaria sets heavily on the development of tourism and wants to win especially overnight guests from Western Europe.

This data has been revealed by TOPHOTELPROJECTS, the worldwide leading provider of global b2b hotel data.

In the capital Sofia, a new Swissotel with 281 rooms, serviced apartments and a private eye clinic is being built. The complex is scheduled to open in 2018. Set on the popular Black Sea coast a 600 room resort of the TUI hotel brand Riu will open this summer.

Tourism in Bulgaria urgently needs new impetus. The number of affluent overnight guests recently decreased to around 4.5 million as previous tourism crowds from the Ukraine and Russia failed to materialize as a result of the Crimean crisis. In the past year about 510 million Euros were generated by the tourism industry. Currently Bulgaria supplies 3,162 hotels and resorts with a total of 314,000 beds.

In addition to the current focus on summer travellers and winter sports guests also the culture and wellness tourism should be promoted in the future. Therefore the Ministry of Tourism recently founded two transnational tours – “Towards the wine” and “Towards the Roman emperors” – which will lead from Bulgaria to Romania, Serbia and Croatia.

For hotel and tourism investors so-called One-Stop-Shop card were developed, which will identifies worthwhile destinations. So ski resorts will be built and lifts will be extended. For the spa tourism historic baths with mineral springs, which occur all over in Bulgaria, will be offered. Also an amusement park, which will popularly display the rich history of European country, is under construction.

Starwood Hotels & ResortsStamford, Connecticut, USA – 23 January 2015 – Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide today announced that it expects another year of accelerated growth in North America, where it will surpass the 600th hotel milestone in the next two months. The company’s growth is being driven by the rapid expansion of its Specialty Select Brands, the continued growth of its Upper Upscale brands and increased demand for luxury hotel offerings. In 2014, Starwood opened 23 new hotels and signed 64 new hotel deals in North America, a 23% signings increase over the previous year and the most deals signed in one year since before the global economic crisis.

“North America remains one of Starwood’s most important global markets accounting for approximately 50% of our global portfolio and a third of our hotel openings in 2014, and we expect strong growth trends to continue this year,” said Simon Turner, President of Global Development for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. “The ongoing economic recovery and increased availability of financing are creating favorable conditions, contributing to strong growth across all three segments of our business and a notable surge in demand for new-build hotels, which comprised 81% of our North America signings in 2014.”
