Sébastien Bazin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Accor, said:
“Once again this quarter, Accor reported a very strong growth in business, exceeding pre-crisis levels for the first time. This marked rebound in all regions and for all of our brands. The summer will confirm these trends and the fall promises to be strong with the recovery of major seminars and conventions. Nevertheless, the Group remains attentive to the evolution of the geopolitical and economic environment. At this stage, the Group should report a strong growth in EBITDA, with a target of more than €550 million for the full-year 2022.”
