Join us at R&R!
The Resort and Residential Hospitality Forum (R&R) is Europe’s leading resort and leisure hospitality event.
It attracts an international audience of senior figures and decision-makers across all aspects of hospitality real estate, tourism and infrastructure investment.
This year’s conference theme is “Leisure Leads the Return” and offers a renewed sense of confidence and optimism within the sector. When speaking at IHIF 2021, Marcus Bernhardt, CEO, Deutsche Hospitality said currently around 20% of the hotel group’s properties are leisure focused and there are plans to grow this proportion as the world starts to travel again. The traditional model of leisure travel is gone and we are now seeing a blend of personal and business requirements as one of the major shifts in leisure hospitality investment. Henri Wilmes, CIO, LRO Hospitality, shared his view on the increasingly blurred lines between personal life and work life, saying that traditional holiday resorts should start to provide proper workspaces for guests so that should they need to press pause on their holiday time and drop back into work mode for a short while, they can do so properly.
One of the biggest changes seen by Dillip Rajakarier, CEO, Minor Hotels, has been in the families market, with many families trying to combine their children’s educations with a holiday. This has led to tutors travelling with families and he is trying to determine how to tap into this growing trend.
With so much positive sentiment in the market and global hospitality leaders and brands alike clearly eager to meet, discuss the state of the industry and crucially, keen to do the deals to reinvigorate the market, now is the time to reconnect and continue the journey back to normality to revive this much-loved industry.
