With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


PKF hotelexperts, a member firm of PKF International, supported the hotel developer with a feasibility study and completed the operator search process for the planned Radisson Red Vienna, which will be operated by Radisson Hospitality AB under an international lease agreement.

"We‘ve had the site on the Donaukanal, just next to [Vienna's] popular Tel Aviv Beach, on our radar for several years," said Christian Walter, managing director, PKF hotelexperts. "When the plot eventually became available, we were able to share our enthusiasm with our clients. We believe that Vienna‘s second district is one of the city‘s most vibrant neighborhoods and are very happy to have secured Radisson Red as the perfect match for the project developers."
