The deal illustrated the growing enthusiasm for branded residences in the sector." Julie & Katherine share their views on how the sector has come together to support the campaign for a Minister of Hospitality, as "this week’s debate ...ended with a unanimous vote in favour of the motion. The debate was triggered by a petition signed by more than 200,000 people, driven by the #SeatAtTheTable campaign."
