Accor committed to opening 20 more hotels in Türkiye by end of 2025

Accor is determined to strategically expand its presence in Türkiye over the coming years.

Stevens also noted that their development strategies not only involve exploring new destinations but also introducing new brands alongside existing ones in Anatolia. "For example, in Gaziantep, where we currently serve with our Novotel and ibis brands, we plan to soon introduce our Mövenpick brand. Our 2024 strategic vision includes expansion into new cities like Ordu, following Trabzon in the Black Sea region. Additionally, we are strengthening our existing hotel portfolio in growing markets such as Istanbul, İzmir, Bodrum, and Antalya, where we still see opportunities for investment and growth. We are open to both management and franchising agreements," Stevens explained.
