The UK Market

With the Brexit just behind us, there is no better time than to convene to discuss UK hospitality and its markets. In its "2000-2015 Benchmarking RevPAR—What Lies Beneath," HotStats, a provider of profit and loss benchmarking to hoteliers from the UK, Europe and the Middle East, delved beyond RevPAR and into the hotel profit and loss statement to investigate how the UK hotel market has evolved over the last 15 years, providing detailed analysis on revenue growth and its correlation with the tidal shift in demand patterns, the resulting impact on cost and profit conversion and key trends likely to be challenging hotel profitability in the next few years.
