“We are delighted to have been asked by STR to act as honorary co-hosts of the Hotel Data Conference Europe with HotelNewsNow.com,” said Elizabeth Randall, managing director of STR Global. “With the hotel industry showing signs of the global recovery, we’re excited to co-host a conference that will offer hoteliers the opportunity to delve into the data affecting Europe and other regions whilst also providing a venue to further work on the deals that will play a large part in that recovery.”
“We’re delighted to launch Hot.E in conjunction with STR’s Hotel Data Conference Europe. We expect that this brilliant collaboration will create a very important annual gathering of the hotel community in Europe”, said James Burba, president, BHN. “London is a great location for hotel leaders to get the latest important data at STR’s event, and then to stay on and get their deals done at Hot.E.”
