Six of the UK's leading hoteliers are among the speakers at a Building conference entitled Understanding the Hotels Sector
The six – from Travel Inn, Marriott, Malmaison, Travelodge, Jarvis and Intercontinental Hotels Group – will discuss their future development plans and their approach to appointing contractors and consultants, as well as their use of materials.

Over the past decade there has been a huge increase in hotel construction spending, which has now reached almost a £1bn a year. Forecasters predict that this figure will rise a further 40% over the next three years.

The conference will be staged at the CBI Conference Centre on 3 July. For further information, or to book a place, telephone 01242-244599.
