Briefing: Europe still a challenging environment

Author: pmalone

Deal making activity has undoubtedly slowed in the past couple of years, with Europe feeling the full force of economic instability. In many ways this period of uncertainty and distress has allowed many from the hospitality world to restructure businesses and cut relevant costs in order to survive. Consequently, businesses are now run much more efficiently.

There are still challenges with growth and hospitality needs to demonstrate that it is a valuable industry that the Governments of Europe, and the World, should take seriously.

In this briefing we hear from:

  • John Brennan, of Jurys Inn Group on the challenges with growth in Europe
  • Robert Shepherd of IHG on re-focusing for the European market
  • Andrew Sangster Editor of Hotel Analyst on opportunities emerging in restructuring
  • And Clive Hillier, of Vision Hospitality Asset Management on no more cost-cutting left to do
