HRS Expands Business Travel Leadership Role in Europe with New Offices in Amsterdam and Paris

City-Center Locations Support Client and Staff Growth in Key Local

COLOGNE, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#analyticslt;/agt;–HRS,
the leading Global Hotel Solutions provider, is expanding its presence
in two vibrant European city centers. Building upon a successful
2018 that featured several major multi-national client signings
is adding staff on multiple continents to serve its growing client
roster. New offices supporting corporations in Benelux and France are
timely in 2019, as companies with significant hotel expenditures
navigate increasing rates (S&P
Global projects hotel rate increases in the “high single digits” in
Benelux and France
) and the evolving ramifications of Brexit

The Amsterdam office opened on 21 January. Located in the UP waterfront
building in the “Silicon Island” area of the city, the office is just
minutes from the Amsterdam Central train station and its six trains
every hour to Schiphol Airport. The renovated ground floor office serves
as a hub for clients and hotel partners that HRS works with in Benelux.

HRS has an extensive history in France. The company has served corporate
clients and individual business travelers across France for decades, and
has had an office in Paris since 2006. HRS’ recent surge of clients in
the region, including
the signing of Toulouse-based Airbus in October 2018
, drove the
company to secure a larger office which opened in January.

HRS’ new Paris office is located in the La Défense district, where 15 of
the world’s largest 50 companies have offices. HRS is located at the
Tour Initiale Building on the fourth floor. The office can accommodate
100 employees, with 1000 square meters of desks and meeting space.

“Our regional and global growth is attracting new clients and a diverse
collection of knowledgeable new employees. These factors drive our
investments in these great facilities,” said Chris
Crowley, Vice President of EMEA Enterprise Solutions for HRS
. “As we
recruit more professionals to serve our growing client roster of
corporations and hotels, these centrally-located offices will serve as
touchpoints for productive meetings and creative lodging strategies that
help companies optimize their hotel spend.”
