Prestige and Profit: Hotel Property Event Confirms Eight Distinguished Panelists


The INSEAD Alumni Association of Switzerland welcomes members and special guests to an evening conference about investing in hotel property, featuring two panel discussions with leading industry insiders. The “Prestige and Profit: Global Hotel Property Investment Insights” conference will be held on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at Zunfthaus zur Zimmerleuten in Zürich.
The hotel and lodging sector is proving to be one in which prestige and profit are not necessarily mutually exclusive. There is an increasing level of private capital, equity and debt financing underway, driven by renewed investor confidence and pent-up demand. As a result, there has been a “remarkable increase” in M&A transaction activity as noted by Ernst & Young in its latest hospitality industry report.The two panel discussions, along with an interactive session with attendees, promise to engage with an interchange amongst champions of luxury assets and champions of return on investment.Event organizer, Francesco Noseda, Director of Financière Eos, a leading French investment firm dedicated to the lodging sector, and former Chairman Swiss International Hotels, will moderate the panels. Confirmed panelists include Benoît-Etienne Domenget, COO Accor Switzerland, Laurent Dusonchet, Managing Partner, Avangard Advsiory, Dr. Timo Grünert, CFO Oetker Collection, Antoine Hubert, Board Delegate, Aevis Holding SA, Peter Norman, Senior VP Acquisitions & Development, Hyatt International, Jean-Gabriel Pérès, CEO Movenpick Hotels, and Bruno H. Schöpfer, Managing Director, The Bürgenstock Selection, Katara Hospitality Switzerland AG.

Come and learn more about the latest investment trends and value drivers, as well as emerging geographic hotspots and innovative product niches that are driving returns.
