Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 29 February 2016: InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®) has launched its new IHG® Business Rewards promotion, offering members the opportunity to earn twice as many points at participating IHG hotels worldwide.

IHG Business Rewards members must register for the promotion and upon booking, will receive an extra surprise – the ability to earn more points and enjoy their rewards more quickly.
Double Points can be earned for every $1 USD spend – up to 120,000 double points in total during the promotion. Examples of the double points to be earned and exciting redemption options are as follows:
· Spend $500 USD and receive 3,000 Double Points – earn towards Digital Downloads

With a maximum accumulation of 120,000 double points during the promotion, members can choose to either upgrade their gadgets with digital downloads, take off on a dream holiday with reward nights or airline miles, or receive a Meeting Credits Prepaid MasterCard* sooner than before.
Nick Barton, Chief Commercial Officer, Asia, Middle East and Africa, IHG said: “We are continuously finding exciting ways to reward members with more value at our hotels and say thank you to our business bookers for booking with IHG on behalf of others.
