Briefing: modern-day construction of deals

Author: pmalone

Deal making in hospitality has always been complex. However, the current economic environment has led to some key differences in how deals are now constructed.

Has the speed in which deals are done changed post 2007? What sort of deals are being putting together? And what are the components that are needed to speed up a deal?

These issues are discussed in this week’s briefing.

Including comment from:

  • Mark Wynne Smith, Global CEO of Jones Lang LaSalle on the increasing interest from Asian investors.
  • Ed Fuller, former President & MD of Marriott International, on business models for hotels.
  • Nick van Marken, of Deloitte, on whether it is currently a buyers or a sellers market.
  • Peter Norman, of Hyatt International, on the differing approach to negotiation by owners.
