Meeting point: Expo Real
Just thinking about how much information has come in this week regarding the upcoming Expo Real in Munich (starting next Tuesday), this trade fair has become tremendously important with respect to the hotel industry. We have already managed to touch on some of this information, and further content will follow in our next issues.
Expo Real itself will be much about funds, financing, and ringing tills. A consultant says: This bubble has to burst! We've gathered several opinions on the latest buzz words – a little teaser to get you in the mood for the trade fair.
Dirk Iserlohe, Head of E&P, uses the context of this trade fair in order to introduce his new HONESTIS AG. Under this roof, he will newly align the current company structure and straighten the close relations between Dorint Hotels and the E&P funds. The difficult restructuring process of Dorint Hotels, which started back in 2009, thus enters a new phase with new investors. Four weeks ago, we had a long, intense talk with Dirk Iserlohe. Our fund specialist, Beatrix Boutonnet, had asked the questions. The result is a very extensive interview full of figures and statements by a thoroughly self-critical fund manager.
In Austria, there is an official website for tourist professionals interested in crowd funding or crowd investing. It worked with the Harry's Home hotel group, for example.
The future will show whether the Carehotels concept will work or not. Anyway, Karina-Anna Doerschel is venturing out on a tightrope walk between hotel and care services. Her goal: "Families nursing their relatives at home should be able to go hiking while securely leaving their patients behind at the hotel." This concept is not easy, but it fully hits a seminal niche with high demand.
Absolutely well-covered by the media, AccorHotels introduced its new "Jo&Joe" concept: super sexy in its wording full of Anglicisms (voilà – and something like that from the French of all people!). Once again, a few marketing freaks have newly discovered the world. But the message behind it is really simple: AccorHotels is entering the low-budget segment. Full-stop.
The German Novum Group signed an MDA with IHG for the purpose of quick expansion in Europe. Messe Berlin, the Berlin trade fair company, is advertising its ITB premiere in China next May, and TUI is happy about a good fiscal year.
Right on time for the start of the trade fair, we have finished our new special issue, the high-class EXPO REAL SPECIAL. You'll find it on our website but also at our booth and in Munich trade fair hotels (more on page 1)!
Moreover, we'll be restarting our "Investment Barometer" together with Union Investment today! What are your yield and risk strategies? Take part either online or at our survey terminal at the "World of Hospitality" at Expo Real (see our page 1).
Our entire team will be present at Expo Real in Munich as well as several correspondents of hospitalityInside.com. We're all looking forward to seeing you and having a chat!
Yours, Maria Puetz-Willems
