Travel, hospitality and leisure challenges

It is important that any developer/investor is fully informed about the hospitality market they intend to operate in and as such the following should always be considered as part of any decision-making:

  • Understanding pricing and cost for the project
  • Understanding supply and demand dynamics
  • Knowing what disruptors within both the supply and demand
    chain need to be taken into  consideration
  • The need  to have a robust business plan to deliver increasingly complex projects in order to secure funding
  • Ensuring any Hotel Management Agreement (HMA) contains
    relevant performance tests and KPIs
