Investor Appetite for CEE Hotel Assets is growing

The CEE hotel markets are moving increasingly into the focus of international investors. The Spotlight Hotel Investment Poland and CEE in Warsaw will address the issues of the industry on 12 and 13 September.


Following the success of previous years, hotel property specialist Christie & Co will once again team up with Bluevine Consulting to co-organise one of the most important hotel investment conferences in Central & Eastern Europe, the 4th edition of Spotlight Hotel Investment Poland & CEE, which will take place on 12 and 13 September this year at the Radisson Blu in Warsaw.

The event is geared towards investors, operators, developers, lenders, financial advisors, real estate consultants and other sector representatives active in the CEE hotel investment arena, and addresses topics that currently move the industry in CEE, such as hotel construction and development, investment and financing, architecture and design as well as trends in hospitality and newcomers. According to Christie & Co, the great popularity the conference has sparked so far is further proof of the attractiveness of the CEE hotel markets for investors, with Poland being one of the most popular regions. Industry experts anticipate an influx of international capital, while demand for hotel beds will continue to increase due to enhanced mobility of international tourists and corporate guests.

Lukas Hochedlinger, Managing Director Central & Northern Europe at Christie & Co, who will speak about the CEE hotel markets and moderate a panel discussion on the topic, says: “Tourism is booming and underpinned by strong economic indicators, the region’s hoteliers expect this positive trend to continue.

“Hotel investors are taking note and increasingly looking to unlock value in CEE capitals. The prospect of hotel assets with higher yields, increasing tourism demand and significant economic growth are proving to be highly attractive for a wide range of international investors. Early adopters are positioned to benefit from an upswing in these relatively immature investment markets.

“Our clients also benefit from this trend. Currently Christie & Co has a few hotels for sale in the CEE region as well as interesting advisory projects, which underlines the movement on the market.”
