Partner and Co-Director, In Extenso Tourism, Culture & Hospitality (IE TCH)
Philippe Gauguier is Partner and Co-Director at In Extenso Tourism, Culture & Hospitality (IE TCH), based in Paris.
After graduating from hotel school and acquiring solid experience in the different departments of a hotel, Philippe participated in the development of a French hotel chain before turning to hospitality consulting.
In addition to hotels, which remains his preferred field, Philippe is heavily involved in all aspects of tourism development, from health tourism (spas, thalassotherapy, etc.), golf tourism and casinos to business tourism (convention centers, etc.), both in France and abroad.
Initially specialized in market research and analysis, Philippe has rapidly become a leading expert in hotel asset valuation, as a member of RICS.
In partnership with STR, Philippe heads up the most representative statistical observatory on hotel performance in France, as well as on tourism residences, thalassotherapy, French hotel supply, Moroccan and Tunisian hotel industry performance.
Philippe also organizes regular hotel trend conferences in France, Morocco and Tunisia, and lectures at leading French business schools.
