Jonathan Humphries, Chairman of HoCoSo, will host the panel discussion on Serviced Apartments at the International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF 2018), in Berlin, 5-7 March 2018. The panel aims to discuss the growing Serviced Apartment sector, which presently remains relative unknown to hotel investors and operators. What are the opportunities for investors, where are key markets, and what returns can be expected? For hoteliers, how does a Serviced Apartment offering fit within a hotel portfolio, and how do the products compare?
