Event Summary

Despite a 1.2%

occupancy rate drop from 2018 to 2019, Boston is seeing a flurry of new and repositioned hotel development around the city. This is all coming off the heels of Governor Baker signing a 5.7% hotel tax on short-term rentals in late December. Towns and cities are allowed to add additional taxes which has already

happened in parts of the Greater Boston region.

How will the traditional hotel players compete with the rise of home-sharing demand and what are the reasons why certain hotels are being developer in particular neighborhoods? Find out at Bisnow's Boston Hotel Summit! As always, there will be plenty of opportunities to network with industry leaders and learn from top executives. We look forward to seeing you there!

  1. How is the Boston hotel industry adapting to the needs of a younger populace?
  2. How will current regulations affect the hotel and home-sharing market in Boston in the coming years?
  3. Are hotels having to redefine their point of view to cater to consumers?
  4. How much more of the hotel market can home-sharing businesses like Airbnb expect to absorb?
  5. Hoteliers or consumers -- who is more likely to "bend the knee"?
