Alternative assets, the new Eldorado of hospitality investment?

Jean-Baptiste Mortier, CEO, The Boost Society, will be on hand to share the model of its residences for students and now young professionals.

Alexis Janoray, Head of Europe at Outsite, will be joined by one of its major investors, Key, to talk about coliving, but not only that. How do you adapt your product and develop new markets? What is the performance on the real estate side and the operations side?

What do investors expect from operators, and how do operators respond?

Tugdual Millet, CEO of Covivio Hotels, will share his plans and priorities as an investor. Maintaining the value of assets also involves operations.

Dominique Ozanne, co-founder of Hova Hospitality, will talk about the development of his young group, launched in 2020, and his investment thesis. In the search for investment partners and assets, adapting to the new situation requires the sharpest possible reading of the markets.

On the operator side, Camil Yazbeck, Managing Director of Development at Accor, will talk about the new context for hotel development in Europe. Where are the development opportunities? What types of products and brands are needed to meet the expectations of owners and end customers?

Valérie Schuermans, Vice President Business Development, Radisson Hotel Group, will be presenting a new development model with an investor partner.

What strategies are operators adopting to ensure that they continue to contribute to their investor partners?

The hospitality business has changed. Where it took 7 or 8 years 15 years ago to amortise a hotel investment, it now takes twice as long. Rising borrowing costs are further complicating the equation, while inflation is eroding the profitability of operations. How can value be preserved? What levers can we use to remain competitive as an operator?

Patrick Mendes, CEO Accor Europe and North Africa, and Dilip Rajakarier, Director & CEO Minor International, CEO Minor Hotels, will be speaking about strategy.

Brands and concepts are one of the levers for creating value. John Rogers, Senior Vice President, Brand Management, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Hilton, will share the priorities of the American number 2. Hilton has grown from 10 brands on 1 January 2014 to 19 by early 2023. 92% of this brand portfolio is positioned from mid-range to luxury.

And there's more to come, so stay tuned!

The Hospitality Asset Forum is the first part of Hospitality Day. Discover the full programme for 9 November.
