Agenda

Coming Soon


The programme* to include:
 
Around the Franchise World…in 10 Minutes       
Partner and Co-Head of Bird&Bird’s international Franchising group, Graeme Payne, will provide an overview of hot topics and themes in the franchise world, including:
  • Territories seeing or predicting a spike in franchising
  • Major markets that have introduced new franchise laws in the last 12 months and those that will do so in the next 12 months
  •  A summary of key topics arising in franchise negotiations 
Greater Freedom or Just a Different Set of Rules?
CEO of HOFTEL, the association of hotel owners and franchisees, Simon Allison, will ask if franchising is the way forward for hotel owners:
  • Most owners like the idea of brands – but few of them like the standard HMA structure
  • Franchising has emerged as a strong alternative, both for self-managed and white-label operated hotels
  • Owners need to be aware that there are still issues to overcome in getting this to work for them
The Pros and Cons of Hotel Franchising – Expert Panel Session
Panelists will be drawn from hotel owners, operators, investors, brands and distribution agencies
Moderated by Russell Kett, Chairman of HVS London
