The top brass of the hospitality industry will convene on November 12 to network and discuss how the hotel market is developing in NYC and how it’s impacting the city.
With that in mind, let’s look at what this exclusive hospitality event has in store for its attendees.
A return to New York
This November, TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR will return to New York City for the fourth time.
It will mark the second TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR event in the United States this year after the series made its debut in Los Angeles this spring.
For the unfamiliar, the conference is TOPHOTELPROJECTS’ now-famous string of boutique events, one that has attracted attendees from across the globe. The programming is intricate, aimed at helping attendees network, learn and engage with a broader subsection of the industry.
This year’s series launched on February 7 in London’s Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, followed by an event in Singapore on March 14 at the swanky Swissotel The Stamford and another gathering in May at the glamorous Hotel Indigo in Downtown Los Angeles.
This year’s topic: how hotels impact New York City
This New York City event will feature a panel discussed dubbed “Boon or bane? Is the oversaturated hotel market ruining NYC?”
This panel will focus on the long-standing hospitality problem of over-supply in New York City, examining the many contrasting takes of experts, which range from fears of oversupply diminishing development to oversupply driving down prices and creating fertile ground for bargain-hunters.
It’s important to note that despite the average New York City room occupancy rate being 85%, in recent years operators have felt pressure and experienced revenue declines.
Furthermore, beloved old stores, cafes and even homes are being redeveloped to make way for buildings that house short-stay guests who neither live nor work in New York.
This day-long conference will feature top-notch speakers and industry thought-leaders such as David Kepron, VP of Global Design Strategies for Marriott International; Paul Breslin, a managing partner with Panther Hospitality; and Michael Goldberg, an author and sales consultant famed in the hospitality space.
