Andrew Sangster launched Hotel Analyst more than 12 years ago and it has grown into a publishing business that now encompasses the original title and Hotel Analyst Distribution & Technology. Included under the Hotel Analyst umbrella is a separate report publishing business and three London-based conferences: The Hotel Distribution Event; The Hotel Alternatives Event; and the Hotel Operations Conference. Andrew has been a journalist for his entire career, starting out on trade press titles before joining the national press and a brief spellat the BBC. He launched his own business focused on providing high level information on a subscription basis after despairing at the quality of what the old business model of selling advertising space was producing.
