DEL MAR, CA—With Chinese investors facing difficulty in getting their money out of the country and other headwinds the hotel industry is facing, sales volume is projected to decrease this year, but there is still opportunity, speakers at RAR Hospitality’s 10th Annual Lodging Industry Forecast here Friday told the 153 attendees, a record-breaking number. The breakfast event was split into two panels: the first, an economic forecast and predictions on how the economy will affect the hotel industry this year; and the second, a look at evolving travel expectations and how the industry can meet them.
