About The Conference

iGlobal Forum was pleased to host the 4th Global Hospitality Leaders Summit – an exclusive senior-level forum where we connected with the leading investors in the field, as well as potential partners and borrowers. With such an unprecedented economic backdrop, participants in the hospitality sector are questioning where we are in the cycle and where the inflection point is. The emergence of services like Airbnb is eating into hotel occupancy; and the boutique and lifestyle sector is growing so rapidly that even the large brands want a slice of the pie. U.S. brands and developers are involved in more franchise relationships than ever before; and food and beverage is now an essential driver of many hotels’ bottom lines. The summit provided you with valuable insights into these critical issues. You will have the opportunity to network with exclusively senior-level representatives from leading hotel owners and developers, debt and equity providers, asset managers, franchisors and franchisees, and REITs.
