In short Hospitality Insights summarised: 

What’s happening: It’s been a rollercoaster year for hospitality investment with bumper consumer demand plus inflation pushing rates up for most of the year but the second half has been impacted by warnings of a looming recession.

Why it matters: Things have changed very quickly and we’re still none the wiser as to how 2023 is going to pan out. It’s a very strange time to be in the hospitality investment world.

1 big quote: "The war in Ukraine and the resulting geopolitical shifts increased general uncertainties about the recovery of tourism and hospitality, especially in Europe, while skyrocketing energy costs, rising inflation and increased interest rates as well as the strong US dollar all impacted the overall economic and business environment."— Roger Allen, global CEO, RLA Global
