Seminar focuses on hotel sector

Recovery in the Irish hotel and hospitality sector is to be analysed, parsed and predicted by Nine Wise Men, overseen by a male Fulbright scholar — with not a single woman speaker on the bill — at an Irish Hotels Federation seminar next week.

The IHF hosts a conference ‘The Next Steps’ that looks at the progress being made in investment and restoring financial sustainability, as well as addressing overhanging debt in the Irish hotel sector.

Speakers at the Clyde Court Hotel Ballsbridge Tuesday next are Leo Varadkar, Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Stephen McNally President of the IHF, economist Alan Ahearne, Tom Barrett, Savills, Aiden Murphy, partner, Crowe Horwath, Owen Travers, director, AIB Corporate Banking. Patrick Ryan, Nama’s hotels and leisure expert, Brian Ross, director, Davy Corporate Finance Con Quigley, partner, BDO Corporate Finance.

Chairing the day-long conference will be broadcaster and Fulbright scholar Myles Dungan.
