CREF: Post-Pandemic Hotel Transactions - Will the Pace Finally Pick Up?

Tuesday, June 22, 2021 at 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Virtual Event

Event overview

As the hospitality industry begins to rebound from the pandemic, the languishing pace of hotel transactions has left investors with questions. How quickly will transactions rebound and what, if anything, stands in the way of a robust recovery? What does the near future hold for investors from both the buyer and financing perspectives?

The School of Hotel Administration’s Center for Real Estate and Finance brings together a panel of seasoned industry professionals to help address these questions and offer a glimpse into the future of hotel transactions. Moderated by Arthur Adler ’78, President of Adler Hotel Advisors, LLC, and Steven Carvell, Professor of Finance in the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business and the Academic Director of the Center for Real Estate and Finance (CREF), the panel includes Daniel Peek ’92, President, Hodges Ward Elliott (HWE); Eva Wassermann, Managing Director, GEM Realty Capital; and Shai Zelering, Managing Partner, Brookfield Real Estate Group.
