The value that hospitality creates for all economies across the world is sometimes overlooked by the global governments. This is exacerbated by the hotel industry being historically very poor at coming together in one-voice and explaining eloquently how significant a thriving hotel market can be to an area, region or even country.

In this briefing we hear from key experts about the consequences of a thriving hospitality industry and what the sector could be doing more of to push governments to recognise it as a stable hedge against economic instability. Including comment from:

  • Paul Slattery, Director of Otus & Co. Advisory on the next 10 years being crucial for global governments
  • Gaël Le Lay, Head of Hotel Investment for AXA Real Estate on the hotels sector growth being correlated with economic development
  • Robert Gaymer-Jones, CEO of Sofitel Luxury Hotels on pushing governments further to encourage tourism
  • Marc Socker, Senior Director – Hotel Fund Management of Invesco Real Estate on what he wishes David Cameron, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, would do for the industry
