This week on In Focus Alexi & Katherine are back to talk about transactions. What does March hold for the transactions market? As sellers refuse to sell for the price buyers want and buyers refuse to pay the price the sellers want. Sellers seem to be able to hold off due to the financial support from the Government and banks right now but what will be the icebreaker in this standoff?

Join us this week for all the latest news and development in the hospitality industry with Alexi Khajavi, Katherine Doggrell and this week's guest Tom Oakden of Hilltop Hospitality Advisors. 

In discussion with Katherine, Tom explains "if sellers don't sell now, there will be a wall of assets on the market" and buyers will see a wall of capital competing their capital....What we need to see are deals which will lead to pricing discovery with transactions beginning to happen at prices both parties are comfortable with and that "certainty of sale" will emerge.

Is it better to be the first or last to the party?

As the market piles up, now is the time to consider the value of your assets. Alexi & Katherine discuss the deals and bargains out there for investors. "This is the hotel sector, a mature asset can bank on it so long as you take a long term view." 

And of course, the latest opinions on Airbnb developments and news as Tom, Alexi and Katherine take a historic look at the company and how they have adapted and developed as a brand and why disruptors are so important for the growth of any sector.
