Given the current landscape with significantly reduced travel, certain commercial real estate property types are encountering obstacles and challenges particularly in some hospitality categories.

Our panelists will explore how existing conditions are impacting the hotel sector from a holistic perspective—focusing in on market, financing and operational effects. These experts, reconvened after a webinar in summer 2020, will provide insights into viability of large group/convention business, labor cost challenges, inevitable return of costly brand standards, the future of food and beverage and franchisor support.
