Joe Stather, VP market lead, operational real estate at Questex, said: “Limited-service hotels and alternative concepts offer real potential for investors and operators. We are aware that more investors are showing interest, no doubt attracted by the lower cost base and lack of exposure to the same operational headwinds as full-service hotels. With its focus on alternative concepts and its targeted programme of discussions highlighting the opportunities within this space, Adjacent Spaces is the ideal forum for those both active in these markets and those looking to join them.”
