Lodging Econometrics Introduces Strategic Growth Solutions for Ownership and Management Groups

Customized market intelligence program will identify management contract and acquisition opportunities worldwide

PORTSMOUTH, NH – Lodging Econometrics (LE), the lodging industry’s leading global partner for real estate intelligence, announces a new business development program specifically designed for acquisition directors and asset managers looking to accelerate growth. LE’s Market Intelligence for Asset Management and Hotel Acquisitions will identify and deliver every potential management contract or hotel acquisition opportunity that meets client chain-scale specifications, anywhere in the world, along with the contact information to close the transaction.

LE’s new Market Intelligence program is designed to support the strategic planning and targeted business development objectives for ownership groups, REITs, equity funds, management companies, and others looking to conduct off-market transactions. The program is sourced from LE’s unparalleled global real estate databases, which aggregate complete records for all hotels in Europe and other significant hotel assets around the world.

“The program is ideal for management companies looking to add management contracts to their portfolios and ownership groups looking to acquire additional real estate assets,” says Bruce Ford, Senior Vice President and Director of Global Business Development for LE. “We start by understanding the organization’s growth objectives, and what countries and markets the client is targeting. We then research the lodging industry to identify every available opportunity that fits their unique specifications, along with the decision-maker contacts for those projects.”

LE delivers an individual data-rich hotel record for each of those growth opportunities—plus all related contact information—in a password-protected, Online Sortable Database, customized for each business development officer’s particular territory. The site is viewable from any device and continually updated.

LE also provides each client with a customized Website Library of Real Estate Trend Reports that includes regional, national, and market trend reports, along with individual portfolio reports for leading ownership and management groups.

“Acquisition directors are finding our customized databases and websites incredibly helpful for strategic planning, monitoring trends in particular countries and markets, and targeting new growth initiatives,” says Ford. “Our programs put all the actionable market intelligence clients need at their fingertips. In a rapidly improving lodging economy, that knowledge and agility is proving essential to accelerating growth and outpacing competitors.”

The new Market Intelligence program is part of suite of new business development programs announced by LE. In addition to these programs, the LE team supports franchise companies, ownership and management groups, and lodging vendors with other real estate consulting services and hands-on orientation programs.

Along with these new programs, LE has recently launched a new website that combines dynamic analytical tools, industry support services, and customized business development programs to help the industry’s leading companies create strategic advantage.

“The lodging industry will soon recover to near pre-recession operating levels,” explains J.P. Ford, Senior Vice President of LE. “With new development and industry-wide investment gaining momentum, economic conditions are exceptional for clients looking to expand their portfolios and grow their market share. Now lodging industry companies can essentially outsource all their market research to LE, so they can focus their available time on business development and pursue the opportunities that support their growth objectives.”

LE’s new business development programs and analytical products build on the firm’s long-standing reputation for providing valuable data to lodging clients looking to identify new business opportunities.
