Sharing his thoughts at the event, Mr. Shafiq commented, “When Condé Nast Traveler magazine placed Pakistan at the top of their list, they were entirely unaware that this was a part of the bigger vision of the Imarat Group all these years.”

“Today, we’re proud to announce the result of years of hard work – a partnership with Marriott International to bring their 3 and 4-star brands – Courtyard and Residence Inn – to Pakistan!”

Mr.Shafiq added that the partnership would boost the number of modestly priced hospitality options in Pakistan and bring a much needed quantum leap to its hotel and tourism industries.

Speaking at the occasion, Mr. Ziad expressed his pleasure to work with the Imarat Group to debut the Residence Inn by Marriott and Courtyard by Marriott brands in the country.

Mr. Raad said that Marriott International would continue to seek opportunities to grow its brand portfolio in Pakistan.

He also said that there is a demand for quality hotel accommodation to support the country’s tourism sector’s growth.
