Gardere Hospitality Industry Team Chair Cliff Risman appeared in the article "Europe's Hotel Debt Remains Cloaked," published by HotelNewsNow.com. The article covers the second annual Hotel Investment Conference Europe held Sept. 20–21 at the Park Plaza Riverbank in London.
Remarking on the pace of transactions, Mr. Risman says, "Banks (in the United States) have forced the issue. In Europe the lenders have been much more patient."
