Executive Briefing 2012


Global Hospitality Group Logo



More hotel rooms were sold in 2011 than at any time in history. RevPAR was up 8.2 percent. Hospitality industry fundamentals strongly suggest that 2012 will be another year for growth in the industry. The lenders on our panels are lending capital to the hotel industry, yet there remain signs of caution, both internationally and locally – and some signs are not so obvious.

Find out what they are and how to navigate your hotel investments. Join the JMBM Global Hospitality GroupĀ® and industry experts in hospitality for an executive briefing on the State of the Hotel Industry and what you need to know now.

Participating companies will share their experiences regarding new employment and ADA rules, how to finance your acquisitions, EB-5 and other unique transaction structures for today’s acquisitions, and getting a jump start on the next wave of hotel development.
