The government of the Murmansk region and the leading international hotel operator Accor have agreed to cooperate. On June 3, the Governor of the Murmansk Region Andrey Chibis and the General Director of Accor in Russia, Ukraine, Georgia and the CIS Alexis Delaroff signed an agreement on the implementation of international hotel projects on the sidelines of the SPIEF.

The project for the redevelopment of the port territory in the capital of the Arctic region provides for the creation of an international cultural and business center "New Murmansk" with a modern hotel.

The head of the region noted the importance of the project, the phased implementation of which, according to Andrey Chibis, will improve the quality of urban space, increase economic activity and unleash the tourism potential of the North. "New Murmansk" is important not only for improving the quality of life of northerners, it is also of great federal and international importance. And the fact that one of the largest hotel companies is interested in the project only confirms its scale. If Accor comes to our territory, we will be glad. Frankly speaking, there are currently not enough high-level accommodations in Murmansk.

In addition, the implementation of the project will provide jobs for residents of the capital of the Arctic and, in general, increase the attractiveness of the region, ”said the head of the Murmansk region. Today the Accor group unites more than 5,100 hotels and 10,000 restaurants, cafes and bars in 110 countries of the world. After the signing of the agreement, Alexis Delaroff said that the group is interested in expanding its presence in Russia, noting the great tourism and business potential of the Kola Arctic and the willingness to cooperate, including attracting investors.

“This year Murmansk was able to demonstrate a huge potential for the development of both domestic and international tourism. I am sure that the beauty and cuisine of the region, its unique beauty phenomena, such as the northern lights, will attract more and more travelers as the borders open. We see that the region is actively developing in this direction and are happy to contribute to the realization of its potential by presenting the city with a modern high-quality hotel, ”commented Alexis Delaroff, General Director of the Accor Group in Russia, Ukraine, Georgia and the CIS.
