The 17th edition of hotelforum, the European Hotel Development Conference, will be held again alongside the International Trade Fair for Property and Investment EXPO REAL on 9 October 2019 at Hotel Bayerischer Hof, Munich and welcomes anyone from the European hospitality and real estate industry.
hotelforum 2019 starts with new formats to give more space to start-ups and digitalisation: two masterclasses focussing on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Building Information Modelling (BIM) as well as Business Speed Dating will be held in the morning. Afterwards the conference morning focuses on innovative hotel projects and the first presentation of new hotel brands to be followed by a start-up pitch for smart and digital technologies and a CEO workshop. 2018 the CEO workshop was hosted by Thomas Willms, CEO Steigenberger Hotels.
In the afternoon two panel discussions are dedicated to the different aspects of hotel development. The conference programme ends with the CEO presentation and the prize-giving of the UPGRADE Award to the pitch winner by Gastgewerbe-Magazin and DerProfitester in cooperation with hotelforum.
During the hotelforum gala evening, the two industry awards Hospitality Innovation Award and the Hotel Property Award will be presented. More than 400 guests are expected to celebrate with the winner, the finalists and representatives of all nominated European hotels for the Hotel Property Award 2019.
