  Here's why Mexico is a top draw for hotel development

Mexico, the most developed hospitality market in Latin America, is poised for continued growth in 2016. A favorable exchange rate that will boost international arrivals, an increase in new-build hotels, overall healthy demand and strong revenue per available room growth are all strengths of the market, according to new research from JLL. In fact, the “Hotel Destinations Mexico” report shows that the country has enjoyed record-breaking visitation levels for the past four years. In addition, foreign direct investment is projected to total $30 billion in 2016 and grow 6 percent annually to $38 billion by 2020, according to JLL. All of this served as a backdrop to the Mexico Hotel & Tourism Investment Conference, which was held recently in Mexico City. Alexi Khajavi, EVP of the Questex Hospitality Group, moderated the panel titled “Hospitality Industry Opportunities: Mexico and Beyond,” during which participants exchanged points on view on how hospitality brands need to understand the local market and identify trends in order to achieve their business goals in the region. Need to read more,please refer to http://www.hotelmanagement.net/own/here-s-why-mexico-a-top-draw-for-hotel-development
