Hotel Asset Managers – Minimising the Pain

How can the Relationship Between Owner and Manager – and the Value of the Hotel – be Optimised?

Hotel owners expect their operators to increase their hotels’ revenues, profits and values.  Increasingly they are turning to professional hotel asset managers to help ensure this is achieved.  So what are the advantages – and limitations – of bringing in an asset manager?  What are the various options – in-house or outsourced?  Shouldn’t an experienced hotel operator be able to look after all the owner’s interests without such ‘interference’ or can each bring out the best in the other?  How can it be a mutually rewarding, enlightening and productive relationship?  These questions – and more – will be addressed by our expert panel on Wednesday 18 October 2017 at 6pm for 6.30pm at Sofitel St James’s Hotel, Waterloo Place, London SW1 and will be followed by networking drinks.
