Event Summary

The city is flooded with hotel development and occupancy levels are feeling the brunt. Amid increasing regulation, hotel developers are searching high and low for a competitive advantage and promising returns. 

New York is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, with record levels of tourists visiting each year. But despite ever-increasing demand, the rise of home-sharing sites, short-term stay providers and private equity investment continue to challenge traditional hotel brand operation strategies. How are they adapting to these pressures? What new ideas are they coming up with? What travel experience are they banking on providing? 

Find out all the answer and close some deals as Bisnow gathers the NYC Hospitality leaders on January 9 2020. Share you comments, post your photos and ask questions using #Bisnownewyork on Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn, and follow us at @Bisnow on Twitter for more news.

Please send any and all event questions to John Whitney, the Northeast Event Producer, at john.whitney@bisnow.com
