With the slow recovery from the global economic crisis in Europe and the growth in markets in the Middle East and Asia, it is likely that European countries and cities will struggle for some time.
What Europe does have on its side is maturity and some don’t believe the doom and gloom sentiment. The secure markets of London and Paris will always remain but picking further opportunities will be a bit more of a challenge.
Experts this week discuss the difficult task for the European continent and what needs to be done to get back to pre-2007 stability. Comments this week include from:
- Rob Seabrook, Head of Hotel Transactions for Savills on the uncertainty seen in Europe
- Nick van Marken, Partner & Global Head for Travel, Hospitality & Leisure for Deloitte on reasons to be optimistic about Europe
- Patrick Sanville, Director of Hotels for BNP Paribas Real Estate on the continued growth of London and Paris
- And Thomas Page, UK Head of Hotels & Leisure for CMS on provincial rates struggling in Europe
