Andrew Sangster, a leading financial journalist who has spent his career reporting on the sector, launched his news service over 10 years ago. A decade later and it is viewed as the key title in the real estate investment arena for anyone involved in ‘hotelising’ their real estate.

“Our aim is to be the best content provider for real estate investors. We aim to do this through our news service, reports and events” says Andrew.

Sarah Sangster came on board in 2013 to set up events for C-Suite level people involved in hospitality real estate investment.  As well as providing an analytical news and report service, Hotel Analyst now hosts two C-Suite seminar type events a year where key issues are discussed and debated. The Hotel Distribution Event and The Hotel Operations Event.

This year Hotel Analyst is very excited to announce its partnership with Bench Events to develop what was its third event, The Hotel Alternatives Event, into the Operation Real Estate Festival (OpRE). Focused on educating and re-imagining your business going forward OpRE is a platform where over 300 investors, owners, financiers, operators, advisors, brokers and innovators will come together to form the operational real estate deals of the future.
