Find out more about YHS experience with our 9th Edition Live

The 10th Edition of the Young Hoteliers Summit seeks to celebrate and illustrate the great diversity and width to which the hospitality industry has progressed. While relying on traditionally inspired business models, today’s hospitality sector has developed into a multifaceted landscape, where the continuous evolution of consumer behaviour and the growing power of online disruptors have substantially impacted the number of stakeholders and, thereby, increased the industry’s complexity significantly. In order to honour YHS’s anniversary and its associated accomplishments the 10th Edition aims to narrate hospitality success stories and simultaneously build a roadmap for the future leaders of the industry: Envisioning - Defining - Succeeding – Three powerful words guiding the content for three insightful days.
