PT Carlson Panorama Hospitality, a joint venture between Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and Panorama Group, signs a management contract for Radisson Medan, in North Sumatra, Indonesia. As part of the rebranding exercise, the existing hotel will be extensively renovated under a US$5 million property improvement plan.
