Welcome to the latest issue of The Bulletin.
I am very pleased to begin our first newsletter of the year by telling you about the launch of IAHGM’s new Advisory Services. This is a time of significant growth for the hospitality industry and the global project pipeline is showing a robust increase year-on-year. A recent E&Y report reinforced this further with news of positive trends in growth, investment, global M&A activity, owner’s equity and new industry products. With these increased opportunities also come additional challenges and hoteliers need to do more than ever in order to stand out from the crowd; that’s where we believe the Association can add real value as a source of unrivalled knowledge and expertise.
The Advisory Services offer independent consultancy advice for hotel General Managers, hotel executives, hotel companies and owners through a carefully selected network of experts. We have gathered some of the world’s most respected industry figures who can advise on a wide range of crucial topics designed to help your business grow – click here to find out more or contact John Cameron, CEO on firstname.lastname@example.org.
