Hotels Sector Demystified – Presentation by Karen Friebe of Bird & Bird


Bird and Bird Partner, Karen Friebe, hosted the second in our series of Real Estate Balance "Sectors Demystified" Sessions at 12 New Fetter Lane London on Thursday 1st February. The session was on Karen's specialist subject, the hotel sector and it was attended by over 20 men and women, mostly from member organisations of Real Estate Balance.

Karen gave an overview of the hotel market, recent deals and some current trends and challenges in the market before talking about hotel management and franchise agreements and key issues involved in the process of selling and buying a hotel. There were a good number of questions from the audience at the end of the session.

We look forward to announcing the details of future Real Estate Balance "Sectors Demystified" sessions to be held this year, to include the Banking, Housing and Private Equity sectors.
