Understanding Hotel Management and Franchise Agreements - thoroughly

The details and the implications:

  • The obligations
  • The rights
  • How to impose/exercise them

Hotel management and franchise agreements are extensive and complex.  They can set the rules for very long periods and determine who pays for what, how much they pay and when payment must be made.  They control the allocation of profits and who bears losses.  They set obligations concerning performance and rights to terminate relationships (or resist termination).  It is essential that their terms are fully understood at all levels of hotel management, ownership and funding not discovered as a surprise.

In this one-day briefing chaired by Clive Hillier, Consultant, Hospitality Management (Colliers International), two hotel property asset managers and three lawyers:

  • Claire Camplisson, Director, Hospitality Asset Management (Colliers International)
  • Richard Eaton-Hart, Director of the Hospitality Asset Management team (Colliers International)
