We explore the stories and people behind the hospitality news of investment, development and operations. The hospitality industry is moving at a pace we have never seen before which makes it more important than ever to come together, share information, and discuss the shape of the future.
Julie Rey-Gore and Katherine discuss the emerging trend of hybrid hotels and what it will take to lure back the corporate traveller. While this week's guests from CBRE: Jane Lees, Executive Director, Head of EMEA Valuation Services and Miguel Casas, Senior Director, Head of Investment Properties, Continental Europe discuss trading performance, investment and the challenging environment of valuations.
Miguel discusses transactions and what is "driving interest is not just the a lower price but the ability to do the deal" while Jane comments that "there is still a strong appetite for hotel ground leases."
