A Hotel Development Consultant in Iran would extremely help Hotel Management Companies and Investors to start the right partnership for a successful Business Development
With lifting of economic sanctions in 2016, Iran is stepping up to become an international tourist destination. Iran opened its gates to international tourists in 2013, but sanctions still made it difficult for tourists to use credit cards. However, many brands are starting their Hotel Development in Iran early to gain speed ahead of the competition. France’s Accor became the first Western company to manage two hotels in Iran near Tehran’s airport in October 2015, its 5 Star Novotel and 4 star Ibis brand. Rotana Hotel Management Corp., based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, is planning for four hotels in Iran by 2018. Similarly, the Spanish company Melia Hotels has announced its plans to open a 5 star hotel in a 130 meter tall tower on the Caspian Sea. Almost all the big hotel brands have made a visit to Iran in recent months. Iran has eased visa requirements for tourists, and the tourism department began working with groups at home and abroad to increase accommodations and access to tourist attractions and promote Iran as a world-class destination.
Hotel Development Consultant in Iran
Due to isolation and sanctions, Iranian Managers and Owners have been away from the International Business Market for many years. They have developed their own management philosophy and business culture that is not similar to any part of the world. Iranian Contract Negotiators have their own strategies and goals in negotiating with foreign counterparts. In developing a long lasting partnership, it is important to seek assistance from a consultant that understands the differences from an anthropology perspective. Soft sills such as problem-solving, team building, and trust building is lacking on the Iranian parts and win-win strategy is usually misinterpreted to become a lose-lose partnership for both sides. A Hotel Development Consultant in Iran is needed to understand these differences and could manage and develop the business partnership for success.
Qualification for a Hotel Development Consultant in Iran
For successful Hotel Development, it is best to start the partnership in its earliest stage. Many Hotel Management Companies try to renovate existing buildings to fit their criteria and requirements to better present their brands. However, in Iran with its lack of infrastructure and proper buildings, many Hotel Developers find it easier to build a new building with international standards. It is best for the Developer team to involve the Investor, Hotel Developer, Property Owner, and the EPC Contractor in the earliest stage as possible. This will diminish and minimize all the misconceptions and wrong steps that might be taken during the development. Therefore, it is best to hire a Hotel Development Consultant in Iran that has the Facility Management knowledge as well as International Contracting Management Experience with Professional Project Management and Business Development Expertise. A consultant with this qualification could help in all stages of the Hotel Development for a successful partnership.
