Canadian Hotel Market Update Webinar
365 Days Later
Colliers Hotels and CFO Capital launched the Canadian Hotel Market Webinar Series in March 2020 as the unprecedented impacts of the pandemic took hold. Over the past 365 days, many lessons have been learned as the industry pivoted against a changing landscape. With vaccine programs rolling out across Canada and globally, there is light at the end of the tunnel; however, the outlook for recovery and long-term impacts remains uncertain.
We have brought together our original panel of hotel owners and industry experts for a forward-looking discussion on the lodging industry’s recovery as well as perspectives on hotel valuation, operational changes, debt liquidity, and investment market conditions.
