LISTEN: Top trends driving Mediterranean hospitality

Daniel Levine, director of the Avant-Guide Institute trends consultancy, the global editor of the popular social trends website, and the leader of a large international team of trend spotters, is hosting a presentation at the Mediterranean Resort and Hotel Real Estate Forum to look at the profound changes that are re-shaping the way people live, work and travel, and how these changes are affecting the hospitality industry in the Mediterranean region. 

"For many Mediterranean destinations in the near future, tourism and hospitality represents a rare economic bright spot," he said. "Hospitality investors can learn a lot about consumer desire by looking at what's trending in other sectors of the economy."
