ALHI, the leading independent Global Sales Organization (GSO) serving the Meetings & Incentive marketplace, has significantly expanded its global portfolio with the addition of 45 independent luxury-level meeting & incentive-focused hotels and resorts located outside of North America.

Each hotel fits the ALHI quality requirements and specializes in hosting meetings, conventions and/or incentive programs, and are located in an attractive destination for meetings and incentive travel. The announcement of ALHI’s newest member hotels and resorts was made by Associated Luxury Hotels’ President and CEO Josh Lesnick.
ALHI’s newly expanded portfolio means that ALHI Global Sales professionals can be the advocate for planners to explore more than 120 Meeting & Incentive hotels and resorts in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Australia and South America, all luxury-level and upper-upscale, with one call to an ALHI Global Sales professional. This now includes 15 incremental choices within Europe and 18 more exceptional hotels and resorts in the Asia Pacific region. Plus, ALHI now offers eight options in Australia, and four great hotels in South America. Appealing new destinations in the ALHI portfolio include: Buenos Aires, Argentina; Sydney, Australia; Copenhagen, Denmark; New Delhi, India; Dublin, Ireland; Rome, Italy; Tokyo, Japan; Auckland, New Zealand; Madrid, Spain; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; and London, United Kingdom.
“We’ve added these 45 exceptional hotels and resorts to our distinguished portfolio in response to the demand we’ve been experiencing from meeting, convention and incentive professionals for more luxury-level hotels and resorts around the world,” said Associated Luxury Hotels’ Chief Sales Officer Mark Sergot. “ALHI now offers more than 250 outstanding hotel and resort options in 63 countries, with an impressive and diverse variety of destinations across North America as well as London, Tokyo, Sydney, Rome and Buenos Aires. We look forward to showcasing these terrific hotels and resorts, and their destinations, to the meetings and incentive marketplace.”
Sergot added, “ALHI has long been recognized as having the very best portfolio of meeting, incentive, and convention hotels and resorts in North America for years, bar none, so we have been busy augmenting our portfolio with fantastic options abroad. These new additions are helping us expand that reputation around the world. Further, we have also planted our newest ALHI GSO office in London, as our first in Europe, just last month.”
