Trade fair section hotel properties: trends & developments

Hotel properties—an attractive segment

The situation in hotel properties is still very good. Players from the hotel and property industries meet at Europe’s biggest trade fair for hotel property and investment to discuss the latest developments and make important contacts.

Good dynamics in hotel properties

The investment volume of the hotel industry in Germany is about 1.9 billion Euro. This is due to the busy construction industry, expansions and new hotel brands, in which local and foreign buyers have roughly equal shares. EXPO REAL is the ideal point of contact for communication and networking with stakeholders and key players in the hotel industry. But apart from the joint booths “World of Hospitality” and “hotel lounge by PKF” there are many individual booths of leading exhibitors from the hotel property sector.

World of Hospitality – the hotel industry in 360°

The well-established joint booth “World of Hospitality” is one of the top destinations for visitors interested in the hotel industry. With 30 companies about half of the exhibitors focusing on this sector are represented there. These companies represent the complete range of hotel development, financing, investment and the hotel management.
