Briefing: Europe needs to demonstrate growth to attract investment

Author: pmalone

With the green shoots of growth being seen across the European market, many believe we are seeing early optimism for not only the hospitality sector but all industry. However, with increasing influence of alternative markets, like China and Brazil, the EU needs to showcase itself as a great place too for capital investment.

As a mature market it has many strengths and we have seen a resurgence in deal making. The long-term prospects of hospitality are paramount, but with the incessant need for short-term returns, is Europe going to be able to show strong enough growth for investors to persevere? In this briefing we hear from:

  • Arthur de Haast, Chairman – Hotels & Hospitality Group for Jones Lang LaSalle on confidence being seen in the market.
  • Josh Wyatt, Partner – Hospitality & Leisure at Patron Capital Advisors LLP on whether Europe is the most exciting place for investment.
  • Richard Candey, Senior Director – Head of Hospitality for DTZ on the resurgence in deal making across Europe
  • And Andrew Taylor, National Head of Leisure for NatWest on London being a very different market to anywhere else in Europe.
