James Munro, responsible for Hotel & Resort & Residential Management at Arc Consulting Partners, is taking part in a panel at Hotel Analyst's forthcoming Hotel Operations Conference on May 24th in London..
As explained by Andrew Sangster, Editorial Director of the Hotel Analyst Group of titles, the Hotel Operations Conference aims to address the following key issues:
"The rise and rise of third-party managers indicates how investors in the hotel industry are beginning to demand clarity in the black box labelled “operations”. Previous approaches of putting the management of hotels into the same category as the brand offering are no longer being accepted. A clearer definition of the value created in running hotels is needed. It highlights how focused management across all aspects of the hotel business will deliver the best results and hones in on just what that management looks like. It maybe that the best approach is to have an integrated brand and management company. Or perhaps separating out the disciplines is the best way forward. Both approaches can create superior value: the key is determining how and what works best where. The Hotel Operations Conference is designed to help provide answers to these questions"
