Marriott International has announced further expansion plans in Africa with seven new hotel signings.

The company is targeting over 200 hotels with 37,000 rooms open or in the pipeline by 2022, equating to around USD8.5 billion of capital investment by its real estate partners, reinforcing its continued commitment to expansion in Africa and solidifying its leadership on the continent.

Commenting on the vast expansion plans, Alex Kyriakidis, president, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International said, “With economic growth [in Africa], a rising middle class and rapid urbanisation, the demand for travel and high quality lodging is growing, providing us with a significant opportunity to enhance our footprint and play our part in supporting many emerging markets across the continent.”
