Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Jessica Kelly, a leading analyst in the Tourism sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
It is surprising that in a major hospitality and tourism market such as Italy, larger domestically controlled hotel groups have not emerged, especially given the inherent advantages of domestic operators in the country. There are 65 projects for upmarket hotels, with 9,612 rooms in the active pipeline in Italy. Foreign and domestic hotel groups are planning more luxury hotel development, especially in Italy’s southern regions.
