the recovery of Tourism

Hospitality business remains resilient on the long term as people will always need to travel for business purposes and leisure trips.

the value creation potential

Diversity of hospitality assets ranging from traditional hotels to leisure resorts on which investors can build a Core, Value-Add or Opportunistic strategy.

the need for hospitality specialists

Investors will have to rely on specialists to shape their investment strategy and increase value.

the right timing

Putting the covid crisis behind us, the European hospitality sector will need to be restructured, while taking into account changes to match the new travelers’ expectations.
