AccorHotels and Cyberabad Convention Centre announced the renewal of their agreement for the management of the Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre and the Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC)


AccorHotels and Cyberabad Convention Centre, a joint venture between Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC) and Emaar Properties PJSC, Dubai, announced the renewal of their agreement for the management of the Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre and the Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC). This follows the completion of a 10-year commitment to manage and operate the 287-room hotel and the 15-acre convention facility in Hyderabad.

Cyberabad Convention Centre and AccorHotels also announced a refurbishment programme for the hotel and the convention centre to build on the complex’s current position as South Asia’s most recognisable and modern convention facility. Located in Hyderabad’s IT and business district, Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre is a 45 minutes’ drive from the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport. The hotel is connected to HICC.

This announcement comes on the heels of the 10th anniversary of Novotel in India. Novotel today has presence of 13 hotels located in key cities across the country. Based on AccorHotels’ current expansion plans, the brand is poised for significant growth over the next few years and is at the cornerstone of AccorHotels’ India development pipeline with another 14 new Novotels expected to open on the next few years.

Alongside HICC, AccorHotels also manages the Lavasa International Convention Centre, and later this year, will also start operations of the Jaipur Exhibition & Convention Centre (JECC). Adding to its MICE portfolio is the Pullman and Novotel New Delhi Aerocity with 40,000 sq ft and the Novotel Kolkata Hotel & Residences with another 30,000 sq ft.

Amit Jain, director, Cyberabad Convention Centre, said, “Hyderabad is characterised by state-of-the-art infrastructure growth, increased business activity led by strong IT/ITES presence and emerging sectors such as education and pharmaceuticals. We take pride in being a part of this growth and in giving the city a world-class convention facility with the Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre. We see great value in our association with AccorHotels and look forward to continued growth particularly in the MICE area.”

“Together with the Government of Telangana, and Emaar Properties PJSC, we have strategic and committed partners. With the Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre and Hyderabad International Convention Centre, we have established a world-class joint facility in Hyderabad and one that arguably, is South Asia’s finest,” commented Jean-Michel Casse, SVP, operations, AccorHotels India.

Neil Paterson, general manager, Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre and HICC, added, “Our focus on structured and seamless event execution replete with meticulous planning has allowed us to successfully position HICC as a premium convention and meetings destination. Featuring world class infrastructure and conferencing facilities, combined with the warmth and personalisation of our staff, HICC is undoubtedly a best-in-class MICE location and a clearly differentiated proposition from other dual hotel and convention developments.”
