COVID-19 Updates

Back to top

The IHG Owners Association is working hard to provide owners and operators with timely updates and useful resources during the COVID-19 crisis. The business environment has transformed due to the pandemic, and occupancy around the world remains severely depressed.

As with crises in years past, public sentiment is fueling a "lock-down" mentality that will continue to have repercussions. The hotel industry has responded appropriately by prioritizing the health of our guests and hotel colleagues, but when a full recovery for the industry will occur remains unclear. As a result, companies and governments alike are providing a number of resources to financially assist those seeing significant disruption to their business.

The Association will continue to advocate on your behalf, and to work closely with IHG's senior leadership on actions to mitigate lost business, save costs and extend compliance timeframes. While some progress has already been made, these discussions are still ongoing, and we will provide timely and accurate updates on further IHG policy changes as they become available.
