The Indian Hospitality industry contributes around 2.2 per cent of Indias GDP. The industry is expected to reach INR 230 billion (US$ 5.2 billion*) by 2015, growing at a robust CAGR of 12.2 per cent. India will be investing around INR 448 billion (US$ 10.1 billion*) in the hospitality industry in the next five years, according to a report The Indian Hotel Industry Report - 2011 Edition by CYGNUS Business Consulting & Research Firm. In the next two years, a total investment of US$ 12.2 billion (INR 545.2 billion*) is expected that will add over 20 new international brands in the hospitality sector. India's hospitality sector is expected to see an estimated investment of US$11.41 billion in the next two years, and around 40 international hotel brands making their presence in the country by 2011, according to a report by Ma Foi Management Consultants. Moreover, the sector is expected to provide over 400,000 jobs. India currently has over 200,000 hotel rooms spread across hotel categories and guest-houses and is still facing a shortfall of over 100,000 rooms (source: FHRAI). The country is witnessing an unprecedented growth in hotel constructions and will be adding almost 114,000 hotel guest rooms to its inventory over the next five years. Major attractions in India are the world's highest mountains, miles of coastline with excellent beaches, tropical forests and wildlife, desert safari, lagoon backwaters, ancient monuments, forts and palaces, adventure tourism and, of course, the Taj Mahal. The earlier setbacks in global tourism have strengthened the Department of Tourism's resolve to promote India's tourism through aggressive marketing strategies through its campaign 'Incredible India'. The 'marketing mantra' for the Department of Tourism is to position India as a global brand to take advantage of the burgeoning global travel and trade and the vast untapped potential of India as a destination.

ABOUT HYATT

Hyatt was founded by Jay Pritzker in 1957 when he purchased the Hyatt House motel adjacent to the Los Angeles International Airport. Over the following decade, Jay Pritzker and his brother Donald Pritzker, working together with other Pritzker family business interests, grew the company into a North American management and hotel ownership company, which became a public company in 1962. In 1968, Hyatt International was formed and subsequently became a separate public company. Hyatt Corporation and Hyatt International Corporation were taken private by the Pritzker family business interests in 1979 and 1982, respectively. On December 31, 2004, substantially all of the hospitality assets owned by Pritzker family business interests, including Hyatt Corporation and Hyatt International Corporation, were consolidated under a single entity, now named Hyatt Hotels Corporation.We are a global hospitality company with widely recognized, industry leading brands and a tradition of innovation developed over our more than fifty-year history.
