We are proud to present our distinguished line-up of partners and introduce
the core orientation of the 7th edition of the Young Hoteliers Summit:
The Young Hoteliers Summit 2016 has addressed the trends in technology, specifically from a Human Resources and investment perspective, as well as the ongoing disruption in online booking and distribution channels. With the constantly evolving global talent landscape and the development of new digital technologies, our aim was to gain a better understanding of how companies leverage and integrate digital technologies to their competitive advantage. In the meantime, the competition between industry disruptors and hotels continues. During the 7th edition of YHS, we have further dived into this aspect and explored the industry’s landscape alongside its disruptors.
We were delighted to welcome Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts as our Challenge provider, who has inspired the 7th edition delegates to provide innovative ideas as a solution to a challenge provided by their company. Four Seasons is celebrated for its exceptional service as well as its noteworthy employee relationships empowered by their innate culture. The above factors contribute to the Four Seasons’ status of maintaining one of the lowest employee turnover rates in hospitality.
Having been the Challenge Provider of YHS’ 6th edition in 2015, we were proud to welcome back Dorchester Collection this year as Royal Partner. The group has been operating a collection of the finest luxury hotels since 2006, pursuing excellence whilst honouring heritage.
We were also pleased to welcome back FRHI Hotels & Resorts as our Royal Partner for the 7th Edition of the Young Hoteliers Summit. With its three distinct brands that offer easy access to a great selection of some of the finest accommodations around the world, FRHI has brought a refined perspective to discussions at YHS 7th edition.
Returning the third time, Expedia has partnered with the Young Hoteliers Summit in 2016. Being one of the world’s leading companies for online travel and renown for its innovative drive, we were delighted to join forces once again to shape the future of the industry.
This year, we were proud to welcome back The Leading Hotels of the World to YHS as our Exposure Sponsor. Established in 1928, LHW is today one of the largest luxury collections with more than 375 hotels in 75 countries.
