Warsaw, March 6, 2018 – Industry-leading global real estate services firm, Colliers International, today announced the launch of its new Hotels Advisory department in Poland, led by Rafał Rosiejak, who has been appointed as Director.
“We see great potential for the hotels sector in Poland and with the launch of this new service line we can lead the way. Rafał’s extremely rich experience will allow us to offer comprehensive consultancy in this field, whilst also expanding upon the range of services we offer clients,” said Monika Rajska-Wolińska, Managing Partner at Colliers International in Poland. “In 2017 the hotel sector in Poland recorded its best-ever performance with transaction volumes reaching EUR 340 million. This amounts to a 7 percent market share in total investment volumes and we can expect this upward trend to continue as the number of projects in the pipeline or under construction increases, not only in Warsaw and Tricity, but also in other regional cities. Meanwhile, the demand for hotel services in Polish holiday resorts also shows a rising trend.”
