Adria Hotel Forum 2014 theme Global hotel transactions reached $31.8 billion in 2012, a 5% decrease on For 2013 it is expected a slight improvement to $33 billion. The hotel investment market in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) moderated in 2012 as transaction volumes slowed by 10% year on year to $11 billion. Yet, given the amount of stimulus injected into the world economy, growth rates for 2013 to 2015 should be well above the current levels. In fact, it looks as though it will take until 2015 for growth to match 2010 levels. This implies that the changes occurring are more structural than cyclical, which has a profound impact on investment strategies moving forward. Positive signs include the emergence of new sources of debt in the form of debt funds and alternative lenders such as insurance companies which are entering the hotel arena. In 2012, Middle Eastern investors were one of the most active buyers of hotel real estate, acquiring about 15% of total investment volumes in EMEA. These investors are more focused on upscale assets in core markets and long term capital preservation. The majority of transaction activity is occuring in Western and Northern Europe with nearly no activity in Central and Eastern Europe, due to the economic and political instability. In the Central and Eastern Europe countries investments will, by most means, be connetcted to the available capital. Although, the available means will grow in Croatia, the expected average growth will be lower than in other parts of Europe. Investors always seek the stability in the country they invest in, and despite the fact that Croatia is 35th by touristic competitiveness (of the 140 countries in total), tax loads are set to 133rd position, staff training is on 122nd position and the amount of governmental investments in the sector is set to 121st position. All of the above implicates that the space for growth and development is tremendous and that Croatian goverment has to make extra efforts to prove Croatia’s adaptation to market needs. Taking a closer look on a microlocation, in it has been invested $500 million yet most of the investments have been done by the local hoteliers. Increase in total income from tourism has been 8,5% in regards to 2012 but the intention has to be focused on the figure which says that the highest increase was in the touristic camps, 28%. Development of the hotel sector is necessary for the development of the overall tourism industry and revenue increase in hotel industry can be partialy achieved through innovative models and products to enhance competitive strenghts. Innovations have been always present in all the industries yet in 21st century they are consciously implementing with the aim to differentiate one service and product from other.
