Eden Prairie (Minneapolis), MN, August 2019 … In a sweeping expansion into 20 European destinations, Teneo Hospitality Group, the premier Global Group Sales Organization, has added 50 luxury hotels and resorts to its international portfolio. The new additions include independent properties, small luxury brands, and premium brands under the Radisson and Accor flags, including Radisson Blu, Radisson Blu Edwardian and Pullman Hotels, as well as the recently announced The Dedica Anthology collection.

Meeting planning professionals will have access to the rewards programs of leading brands including Radisson Rewards and Accor’s Le Club AccorHotel as well as the highly specialized meetings programs offered at their properties.
