The Radisson Hotel Group will be launching two new properties in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, in a move that marks its expansion into tier-2 cities following a recent announcement of the upcoming opening of a 230-room property in Ningbo

The Wuhan launches are catered to the industrial needs of the city, serving the Wuhan Economic and Technological Development Zone and the Donghu high-tech zone, also known as the 'Optics Valley'. It's home to China's biggest photoelectron information industry centre. 

The hotel group said Radisson Blu Wuhan ETD Zone and Radisson Wuhan Optics Valley will open in the first quarter of 2020 and June 2024 respectively. The former will be a 355-room lakeside property next to Hou Guan Lake, to be developed by the Wuhan Liantou Peninsula Real Estate. It is expected to be equipped with nine meeting rooms and a 1,600-sqm ballroom.

Radisson Wuhan Optics Valley, a 220-room property with a busineess centre, functions rooms and a ballroom, will be developed by Wuhan Donglian Real Estate. Both properties will be about an hour's drive from Wuhan Tianhe International Airport.

“With their international accommodation and world-class facilities, including flexible MICE venues, Radisson Blu Wuhan ETD Zone and Radisson Wuhan Optics Valley will be perfectly suited to this emerging global city," said Katerina Giannouka, president, Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group.
