REFI Europe Webinar: Hotel Investment

In response to growing concerns over travel restrictions and face-to-face contact due to the outbreak of coronavirus, REFI Europe has taken the decision to change the format of this Breakfast Briefing.

The Briefing will no longer take place as a live event and will instead be held as an online webinar as follows:

Date: Thursday 14 May 2020
Time: 9am – 10am BST
Topic: Hotel Investment

The webinar is free to attend. To register to join the webinar, click here.

Discussion points:

  • How much of an impact has Covid-19 had on the hotel market?
  • What are the most resilient sub-segments? (luxury? budget?)
  • Why are institutional funds becoming more and more interested in hotels?
  • What investment opportunities are available in the hotel sector – portfolios, independent hotels, assets operated by large hotel chains?
  • How important is the relationship between owners and operators?
  • What new hotel concepts are emerging?
