The group is the parent company of independent hotel brand, Preferred Hotels & Resorts, sustainable hotel brand Beyond Green, and travel and tourism consultancy brand, PTG Consulting, among others.
The change to Preferred’s corporate identity is designed to more accurately describe the company’s growing suite of services and expertise, which to date includes six hospitality, travel and sustainability brands, marking the company’s evolution beyond hotels and a growing influence within the wider travel industry.
Preferred Travel Group currently counts four hotel brands, Preferred Hotels & Resorts, Beyond Green, Historic Hotels of America, and Historic Hotels Worldwide; and two consultancy brands, PTG Consulting and Beyond Green Travel, specialising in destination and hospitality brand representation and sustainable travel services respectively.
The group’s CEO, Lindsey Ueberroth, commented: “Our company’s repositioning comes at a time when enthusiasm for the possibilities of travel is at an all-time high. As we look ahead to 2023 and beyond, the simple inclusion of ‘travel’ in our name clarifies what we do and the solutions we provide to both travellers and travel professionals.
“It is a great honour to be the partner of choice for more than 1,100 one-of-a-kind hotels and an expanding portfolio of global destinations. Our new name represents just how far the Preferred brand has come since it was established by a small group of like-minded hoteliers 55 years ago.”
