International Hospitality Industry  Provides Ample Opportunity
for Global Design and Development Firm Gettys
.
.
Despite some forecasted industry downturns in the US markets, global hospitality design, procurement, and development firm Gettys is thriving and continues to celebrate significant growth and an increasing number of projects on the international stage.

Gettys Hong Kong is capitalizing on the immense opportunity in this flourishing global market, including a recent casino and high-end residential project award in the Philippines and continued work on the groundbreaking Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Macau as a part of the City of Dreams development.

“We are delighted to continue bringing our wealth of international hospitality expertise to exciting markets in Asia and the Middle East” says Ariane Steinbeck, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Gettys Hong Kong. “We are focused on growing our international portfolio significantly over the next two years, and look forward to leveraging our presence here in Hong Kong to bring our clients unprecedented success.”

Gettys is also in the midst of developing a five-star, luxury golf resort in Abu Dhabi that is slated to open in 2010.  The United Arab Emirates continues to be a hotbed of hospitality development activity, with unprecedented growth in that market in 2008 and ongoing forecasts for significant development activity for the next several years.

The firm’s Miami, Chicago and Irvine offices are also engaged for exciting projects across the US and the Caribbean, including a luxury resort project on Costa Rica’s Papagayo Peninsula, the comprehensive renovation of Chicago’s historic Blackstone Hotel, and luxury resort and spa projects throughout Florida and the Caribbean with discerning clients like Marriott Vacation Club International and Starwood’s Luxury Collection.

In addition to their portfolio of award-winning design work, Gettys is also an active player in the hotel development market, leveraging nearly 20 years of expertise to tackle complex redevelopment projects that might intimidate even the most seasoned investors.

“Our team represents a unique blend of expertise in real estate finance, hotel operations, design, procurement, and project management, which makes Gettys capable of adding tremendous value to each development project we undertake,” says Roger Hill, Chief Executive Officer. “Our success during the past 20 years has enabled us to streamline the acquisitions and due diligence process and identify outstanding redevelopment opportunities at each stage. We truly are in a position to bring comprehensive expertise and value to both our clients and our own projects.”

Established nearly twenty years ago, Gettys is an award-winning global hospitality design and development firm headquartered in Chicago, with offices in Miami, Irvine, Calif., and Hong Kong.  Work across North America, Asia, the Middle East and the Caribbean has earned Gettys a reputation as one of the finest hospitality design and development firms in the world.  For more information about Gettys and a sampling of their extensive portfolio, visit www.gettys.com.
