Presenter, "Hotel Development Trends: An Evening Exploring Seattle's Skyline," Davis Wright Tremaine and CBRE, Seattle
This lively discussion of hotel development trends and their impact on Seattle took place as our delegates shared developments from another successful Americas Lodging and Investment Summit in Los Angeles, California. Topics included:
- How are differing investment strategies changing the financial (and physical) landscape?
- How has the hotel market been impacted by demand generators such as Amazon, Facebook, and the biotech industry?
- Are tertiary market acquisition opportunities taking a bite out of gateway markets' appeal?
- With market performance tapering, what will be the overall impact of new supply on the existing inventory?
