LONDON, UK, 1 October 2021 – The Resort and Residential Hospitality Forum (R&R) is Europe’s only resort-focused investment conference and the 2021 edition is taking place at the Tivoli Marina Vilamoura Resort on 25-27 October 2021.

R&R is part of the highly reputable International Hospitality Investment Forum (IHIF), and attracts a senior audience of leading investors, developers and operators in the leisure hospitality sector. What sets this event apart is the seniority and decision-making power of its audience and the opportunities to forge new connections and partnerships that can transform businesses.

This year’s conference theme is ‘Leisure Leads the Return’ and is testament to the resilience and adaptability demonstrated by the industry. Investment appetite remains strong, with some hospitality brands reporting double-digit growth in ADR as leisure travellers make up for lost time over the past year and a half. The seismic shifts in leisure hospitality investment continue to shake up the industry, with increasingly blurred lines between personal and work life demanding innovation across all aspects of the resort and leisure experience.

At our last edition in 2019, more than 400 delegates from 14 countries were in attendance to hear from 80 industry-leading speakers. The strength of the R&R conference programme and contributions from respected and influential leaders creates an informative, innovative and educational experience for all who attend:

'R&R is a quality event which I will definitely be attending again. The conference gives you a superb balance of networking and highly informative sessions. The attendance is of the highest calibre and you come away with really useful contacts.' Daniel Johansson, Director of Development and Acquisitions, Cheval Collection

'The Med is one of the most visited areas in the world…it deserves a world-class event to showcase its true potential, and MR&H delivered just that!'

Savvas Perdios, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Cyprus

'Besides the excellent content and networking opportunities I have come to expect of R&R, the increased focus on the leisure/resort segment and island destinations is of great interest.'

Rui Cardoso-Santos, Board Member, Águas e Energia da Boavista

Joining the panel of speakers is Vilamoura World CEO, João Brion Sanches, who be taking part in the Destination Roundtable: Portugal session on Tuesday 26th October. He joins host, Luis Araujo, President of Turismo de Portugal and Julio Delgado, CEO of Ombrira Resort, as they collectively review the resort investment climate in Portugal and discuss the market dynamics and opportunities.

R&R is focused on providing an unrivalled networking environment with 12 hours of business-critical networking included over the course of the three-day event. Delegates can meet with a select audience of owners, operators, developers, investors, bankers, lenders, asset managers, and architects to discuss the latest and most exclusive opportunities in leisure investment.

Delegates can attend four networking lunches and evening receptions as part of the conference programme, and this year we are pleased to announce we are bringing together two of our events for a unique networking reception. Delegates of R&R and our hosted buyer event, Hotec Europe 2021, will come together on Tuesday 26th October at the Tivoli Marina Vilamoura Resort for an evening of drinks, food and conversation.

Hotec Europe gathers senior executives of leading hotel chains, purchasing companies and interior and architectural design firms alongside key leading domestic and international suppliers. By combining both R&R and Hotec audiences, we are creating a not-to-be-missed opportunity for delegates to make contacts across the entire hospitality lifecycle that could transform businesses and brands alike.
