CAIRO & MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) and Misr Italia Properties today announced the signing of a management agreement to open two properties in Egypt by 2021. The projects consist of a hotel under the flagship Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand in Ain Al Sokhna, a historic port city on the Gulf of Suez, and a midscale Hilton Garden Inn in New Cairo, a debut property for Hilton in Egypt's planned new administrative capital and the first confirmed location for Hilton Garden Inn in Cairo.

Mohamed Hany El Assal, Co-CEO of Misr Italia Properties, "Misr Italia Properties' successful partnerships with Hilton confirms our commitment to offering the best services to our customers across all our distinguished projects, whether our residential, tourism, or administrative projects. Partnering with Hilton and its presence within our projects reflects Misr Italia Properties' leading position in the Egyptian real estate market."

"Our more than 50 years of operating experience in Egypt places Hilton at the heart of the country's expanding hospitality offering. With the recently expanded Suez Canal and New Cairo project both attracting significant infrastructural investment, it is the right time for us to revitalize our Egyptian portfolio with new projects in these emerging locations. New Cairo's vision to become a thriving hub for business makes it an ideal location for us to introduce our Hilton Garden Inn brand to the capital and we are keen to explore further such opportunities in the midscale sector in Egypt and across MENA," said Carlos Khneisser, vice president, development, Middle East and North Africa, Hilton.

Hilton Ain Al Sokhna
