Horwath HTL announced the launch of their industry standard report, Italy Hotels and Chains.

The report, now in its 10th year, is an in-depth look at the Italian hospitality market, focusing on the relationship between branded and independent hotels. The report is available for free on the www.horwathhtl.com and www.horwathhtl.it websites.

The report also tracks the key tourism indicators of the market, such as arrivals, overnight stays, and new hotel developments.

Zoran Bacic, Managing Director of Horwath HTL, Italy who created the report said

“Italy has experienced a much faster recovery than expected, with many of the indicators already at, or past 2019 levels. That said, there is still much work to be done bringing Italian hospitality levels up to comparable international standards, but the continued growth in branded products, up 3.3% year on year, shows that investors agree and are starting to deliver new and more modern products.”
