“Retail And The Hotel Industry” – A Profitable Partnership For The Benefit Of All? /// ACROSS Retail Talk: June 18th, 2024, 4 PM (CET), ONLINE/ZOOM

Three years after the coronavirus pandemic, people are traveling again. City trips are particularly popular. This trend is also boosting retail at tourist locations. If tourism and hospitality are to play an important role in the future of retail (and they must), then the presence and location of hotels is crucial. The combination of hotel and retail sectors offers many opportunities. Nevertheless, the two asset classes have hardly been connected to date.

The ACROSS Retail Talk “Retail and the hotel industry” will highlight the synergies and opportunities between retail and the hotel industry.

Among other questions, we will discuss:

  • To what extent do retail and the hotel industry benefit from each other?
  • At which locations is the symbiosis particularly evident? Which hotel formats are particularly interesting for the combination of retail and the hotel industry?
  • What are the requirements for an asset to optimally combine retail and hotels?
  • Why does it make sense from an investment perspective to combine the retail and hotel sectors?
  • Possible significance for transaction business?

A high-caliber panel will discuss retail and hotel industry synergies from the most diverse perspectives: Investors, developers, operators and Consultants. Klaus Striebich (Moderator; RaRE Advise) and Reinhard Winiwarter (Managing Partner ACROSS Magazine) will be joined by:

  • Elena Günther-Jakobs, Associate Director Development Northern & Central Europe at Ruby Hotels
  • Christian Buer, Professor of Business Administration and Hotel Real Estate & Financing and Head of Tourism & Hospitality; founder of Nemis
  • Torsten Kuttig, Director ECE Work & Live GmbH
  • Andreas Löcher, Head of Investment Management Operational at Union Investment Real Estate GmbH

Klaus Striebich (Managing Director; RaRE Advise) and Reinhard Winiwarter (Managing Partner ACROSS Magazine) will moderate the discussion.
