Breakfast seminar – Held on 12th November 2019 

This Breakfast Seminar session considered that at a time of global turmoil and uncertainty, we invited you to a thought-provoking session.



In summary of this excellent event, Lord Peter Hain spoke in detail about the ‘changing times’ in the broader international geopolitical arena. Our colleague from INCE solicitors commented on the possibility of potential staffing shortages depending on the outcome of BREXIT and how this may drive more automation in the future in the hospitality sector which may include digital check in and far more online services.

Andy Porter outlined Coutts Bank’s current funding policies and stressed the high levels of activity in the sector generally and Ufi Ibrahim, the Chairman of Hotel Energy and Environment Alliance, was most informative, speaking about sustainability and energy conservation and the long term options for the sector.

The event was at full capacity, with approximately 100 industry professionals attending, with the imparted information covering a wide range of current issues and provided an excellent opportunity for attendees to exchange views and discuss important issues affecting the sector. These themes will no doubt be expanded at future seminars and workshops planned for 2020.


HOTEL INTEL – ‘Beds over Sheds’ – 30th April 2019

An audience of 70 listened to the presentation on the opportunities and constraints of this increasingly accepted concept provided by HPUK Partner, AROS Architects supported by guest panellists, ICENI and Colliers.

MIPIM 2019

Once again, Hotel Property UK hosted a Drop-in lunch at San Telmo on Wednesday March 13th from 12 – 2pm.
Many of the HPUK Board were in attendance and had very positive discussions with other hotel sector professionals, who come along and enjoyed the best pizza in Cannes! Our Professional Partner team were glad to receive more than 75 visitors to this event which exceeded our expectations and made the event wholly worthwhile for all concerned.
Below are a few images from the event itself, including personal service of lunch from our CEO, John Cowell.
