The questions remain the same - it's the answers that change
Value is in the detail - not in generalities of limited utility

This annual briefing provides the details: what's available, from where, for what purposes and on what terms. Direct - hard facts and well informed opinion.

  • Who is lending, what are their appetites
  • On what terms and security criteria
  • Where and for what
  • For development and/or investment
  • In UK and Continental Europe
  • Opportunities and trends

For all hotel owners, investors and operators; their chief executives, finance directors and financial controllers; brands, lenders, agents, advisors and consultants.

Full documentation will be provided to all participants and adequate time set aside for questions and discussion.
