IHG hits £1bn mark in China

first_img InterContinental Hotels (IHG) said yesterday sales from China would beat $1bn (£626m) for the first time this year, as it prepares to double its hotel count in the fast-growing market. The emergence of a middle class in China who are keen on travel has led big hotel operators to pile into the market, with InterContinental, Marriott International, Accor and others building their portfolios. IHG, the world’s top hotelier by room count, whose brands include Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn, had 132 hotels in Greater China, which includes Taiwan and Hong Kong, at the end of June with another 148 in the pipeline. The company has undertaken a massive overhaul of its Holiday Inn brand across the globe.

Pennsylvania casinos miss out on in-house online gaming

first_img Pennsylvania casinos miss out on in-house online gaming Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Players will soon be able to access digital gaming elsewhere in the state Punters in Pennsylvania will not be able to access online gaming services inside casinos, despite the state moving to legalise internet gambling. Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) regulations will permit players to place online wagers from anywhere in the state, with the exception of inside a casino’s walls. The rules extend to all forms of internet gaming including online poker, casino games and slots. The PGCB document said: “The Gaming Control Board will put in place a system that, through the use of GPS software and IP Address identification, will block entry and play of Pennsylvania-licensed internet gaming if a user is outside of the state.“In addition, participating in internet gaming when in a Pennsylvania casino will also be blocked.” Penn National Gaming’s Hollywood Casino and Rush Street’s SugarHouse Casino are among those to have obtained online gaming licences. The decision comes despite consumers in Nevada and New Jersey, both of which offer legal internet gaming, being able to gamble online when inside a casino, and some industry sources believe that the move could harm Pennsylvania’s market before it has even launched.Nevada only currently offers online poker, while New Jersey has different taxes for playing online on property and off property.Pennsylvania has already awarded the majority of its 39 online gaming licences, but those operators that missed out in the initial process will have the chance to win a licence in a lottery-style draw. A Qualified Gaming Entities window will open today (Monday) and run through to October 31, allowing companies to apply for the handful of remaining licences. Only five licences are available after the PGCB this month awarded online gaming licences to Sands Bethlehem Casino and the Boyd-owned Valley Forge Casinos Resort. Despite pushing ahead with such plans, Pennsylvania has no immediate plans to allow punters to place online sports wagers when it launches a regulated sports betting market. Pennsylvania has already awarded a number of sports betting licences ahead of the anticipated launch of the regulated market before the end of the year.Image: Santeri Viinamäki Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Tech & innovation Tags: Online Gambling Casino & games 15th October 2018 | By contenteditor Regions: US Pennsylvania Email Addresslast_img read more

Deadline Approaching for AgriInstitute’s Leadership Program

first_img SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Jan 2, 2020 Deadline Approaching for AgriInstitute’s Leadership Program Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Deadline Approaching for AgriInstitute’s Leadership ProgramOver 500 people have gone through the AgriInstitute Leadership Program, or ALP. Some notable alumni include USDA Under Secretary Ted McKinney, White House Senior Advisor for Rural Affairs Anne Hazlett, Indiana State Dept. of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler, state legislators, and a number of other farmer leaders across the state representing different commodity groups. Now, it’s your chance to join them.AgriInstitute is seeking applications for ALP Class 19.“It can be anybody who has a vested interest in agriculture,” said Beth Archer, Executive Director of AgriInstitute. “From farm production, to food production, to energy production, to those who are involved in education roles, government services roles, accountants, transportation. There are so many facets of our industry and allied industries. So, anyone who’s involved with those should consider applying for our program.”And what does the program entail?“It’s a two-year commitment. We have 12 sessions over a two-year time period. Those sessions are multi day in length. So, 10 of them will be three days in length, then we study for a week in Washington, D.C., and we do two weeks of international studies as part of the program. So, there’s an investment of time,” said Archer. “We have a tuition fee of $6,000 per person. That covers only about 25% of the total cost of the program, so we are dependent on donors to help us provide this program for those in the industry.”Farmers who want to participate can take advantage of a scholarship opportunity through the Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana Corn Marketing Council. They’ll contribute up to $1,000 per farmer accepted into the program.You can learn more about ALP and apply for the Leadership Program by visiting The deadline for applications is January 17.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse sells for approximately $51 million

first_imgGCShutter/iStockBy JAMES HILL and AARON KATERSKY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — An attorney for the co-executors of Jeffrey Epstein’s estate confirmed reports that a sale has closed on the late sex offender’s New York City townhouse on East 71st Street.The sale closed earlier this week for a price of approximately $51 million, according to Daniel Weiner, a lawyer for the co-executors. This is down from the original asking price of $88 million.The identity of the purchaser was not disclosed.Epstein moved into the massive home, known as the Herbert N. Straus House after its initial owner, in the mid-1990s.This is the first of Epstein’s multiple high-end homes to be sold since his death in August 2019.Epstein’s Palm Beach Island mansion has been under contract for several months while the co-executors dealt with some fraudulent claims to title on the property.Those issues have been resolved by the courts, the lawyer for the co-executors said, and they “hope to move forward” with that sale. The developer who has the contract to buy that home, which was initially listed at about $22 million, reportedly plans to demolish it. Palm Beach County, Florida, officials have already approved the planned demolition.Epstein’s properties in New Mexico and Paris “are being prepared for sale” the attorney said, likely later this year when COVID-19 restrictions ease.Epstein’s two U.S. Virgin Islands properties are not currently on the market because of government liens against them in connection with a civil lawsuit against the estate.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
