EMEA Hotels Monitor Issue 13 - February 2014 - WhiteBridge
Following on from the success of the previous 12 issues of the EMEA Hotels Monitor, we would like to welcome you to Issue 13. The aim of the Hotels Monitor is to provide our clients and contacts with a quick reference booklet listing those vital statistics which reflect the relative health of our exciting industry across the EMEA region. The monitor incorporates hotel performance statistics from STR Global, an up to date guide on development costs from Rider Levett Bucknall and a selection of interesting deals transacted in the previous six months, courtesy of Whitebridge Hospitality.
