iGlobal Forum is pleased to present our 2nd Global Hospitality & Lodging Investment Summit to be held on November 14th, 2012 in New York City! This exclusive one-day event will cover all of the critical issues and information investors need to succeed in today’s highly competitive hospitality arena. This year is proving to be another banner year for the hotel & lodging business with RevPar rates, ADRs, occupancies, and property values continuing to climb from 2011 levels. But how long will this growth trajectory continue? How will the hospitality sector fare in 2013 and beyond?
Through dynamic discussion and debate, the Summit will examine the global outlook for the hospitality sector along with the most promising opportunities and potential threats. It will also address the sustainability of recent improvements in ADRs, RevPAR and occupancy rates as well as discuss the prospects for new hotel development, techniques for managing and mitigating risk, and how to deal with distressed properties. Last, but not least, our speakers evaluate the likely impact of the 2012 Presidential and Congressional elections on the economy and the hospitality industry.
The event will provide the perfect platform needed by hotel investors, REITs, owners and operators, financiers/lenders, investment bankers, developers, franchisors and asset managers to network and meet face-to-face. Join us in New York City as we unite the leading luminaries in the hospitality industry for this exciting and educational event!
