Image-Main-contentThe rise and rise of alternatives to traditional hotel accommodation is changing the investment landscape for what had been a specialised and exclusive real estate segment. Hotel Analyst, the definitive source of information for hotel investors for more than a decade, is launching a new event to highlight the issues.

New accommodation types – such as capsule hotels, hostels and serviced apartments – are emerging as direct threats to hotels. Other traditionally separate asset classes such as student accommodation, timeshare and the private rented sector are entering the short-term letting space as well.

The new threats are being facilitated by the sharing economy as websites like Airbnb and Housetrip enable the emerging accommodation providers to cost effectively market to a wide audience of potential guests.
