Hospitality Finance & Economics Conference

27-28 JUNE 2019, Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, Switzerland

The 3rd annual Hospitality Finance & Economics research conference is a forum to explore the latest advances in finance, real estate and economics by combining academic and practitioner perspectives. This year we shift our focus from "Private Markets" to "Indices“.

As finance, real estate and economics experts need to work in unison, the creation and sharing of insights – such as indices and theories – is paramount in creating a wholesome environment for investors, managers, policy makers and consumers, in hospitality and beyond. Hosting renowned experts, academics and professionals, this conference aims at facilitating knowledge creation and sharing across disciplines.
