GHC Asia has opened its doors in Chengdu, marking its fourth office in Greater China and sixth across Asia.
GHC Asia’s team in Chengdu will be led by associate director Phil Boyle and account manager Leta Cheng.
The team will work on national accounts including Ritz-Carlton and LUX Resorts who have properties in the region as well as developing the presence of overseas clients including McArthurGlen and Walpole British Luxury.
The opening comes on the back of huge growth in both inbound and outbound tourism, disposable income and real estate development in both Chengdu and the surrounding cities of West China.
“We are seeing exciting developments in Chengdu from both the development happening there in tourism and retail, to the huge annual increase of international tourists growing by 65 percent year-on-year,” says GHC Asia’s China managing director Gary Yu.
He added its roster of client is now based heavily around hotels and tourism in Chengdu and also surrounding regions in Sichuan and Yunnan, including Songtsam Lodges in Yunnan Province and Ritz Carlton Chengdu, with more hotel opening projects coming up.
“Our Chengdu office offers the opportunity for our regional clients to gain greater access vast growing numbers of high-net worth individuals in the west of China, as well as help build local business’ footprint in Chengdu and nationally.”
