Tuesday 24 November

10:00 - 11:30 GMT

  

HVS, AlixPartnersBird & Bird and EP Magazine are hosting a webinar for the Hotel sector on 24 November at 10am GMT.

Join speakers from AlixPartners and Bird&Bird along with a panel of key stakeholders – hotel owners, investors, banks and other lenders – as we address the main differences this time round compared to the GFC, the principal issues for shareholders, management and lenders in a potential insolvency situation, and some specific practical hotel issues to consider when facing an insolvency.  What could the impact be on your business if you are not properly prepared if matters take a turn for the worst?

The full programme will be available next week, and in the meantime we invite you to register your interest in attending and add the event to your calendar using the buttons above.
