IHG Launches Business Edge


InterContinental Hotels Group has introduced IHG Business Edge, a programme designed to enhance the corporate travel experience for small and mid-size enterprises.

The programme is open to companies with fewer than 250 employees and up to $50 million in revenue that spend at least $5,000 with IHG annually.

Members are entitled to discounted rates at participating hotels across IHG’s portfolio of more than 5,400 properties across 15 brands, including InterContinental, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza and Kimpton.

Participating travellers also enjoy the benefits of IHG Rewards Club Gold Elite status after completing their first stay.

Through the customer portal, the corporate administrator can monitor essential travel data including hotel spend, room nights, average daily rate, savings and IHG Rewards Club participation over the previous 12 months.

With future enhancements, the portal will also serve as the gateway to the IHG Business Edge community where administrators can access a content centre with business tools, articles for continuing education and a forum to connect with fellow SME travel administrators.

To qualify as an IHG Business Edge member, travel administrators can apply at businessedge.ihg.com.
