This year’s edition of the Young Hoteliers Summit will take place from the 12th until 14th of March 2018. With its umbrella topic “Eyes on the Future: Following the Momentum of Growth”, the 9th edition aims to explore the trends, possibilities and opportunities in the hospitality industry. Driven by the growth of millennial travelers, both the world’s leading hotel chains and entrepreneurs are discovering and creating new experiences to cater to the needs of millennials. YHS will explore topics ranging from new branding ideas and marketing schemes to the trends for the Internet of Things in Hospitality and the changing landscape of hotel ownership.
During this year’s summit, YHS will again host various panel discussions, keynote speeches and workshops. Keynote speakers this year include top managers such as Tina Haller, Senior Manager of KPMG for the hotel & real estate advisory and Michael Levie, Chief Operations Officer of Citizen. M. Steve Hood, Senior Vice President of STR, will also be hosting the annual Certificate in Hotel Industry Analytics (CHIA) workshop, which all student delegates can undertake. In addition to keynote speeches, panel discussions will revolve around topics such as redefining Luxury in the Age of the Millennial traveler. Millennials are bound to become a significant customer segment in the following years, and traditional luxury needs to be redefined to stay attractive to this new generation of travelers. The panel discussion will help to shed light on this issue and help find a solution for traditional luxury hotels.
