YHS is Recruiting!
Watch our 10th Edition Aftermovie!
Young Hoteliers Summit 2019
The 10th Edition of the Young Hoteliers Summit sought 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 honour of YHS’s anniversary and its accomplishments, the 10th Edition aimed to narrate hospitality success stories and simultaneously build a roadmap for the future leaders of the industry: Envisioning - Defining - Succeeding – Three powerful words guided the content for three insightful days.
The 10th Edition concluded on 27 March 2019 with great success, earning praise from its partners, speakers, and delegates alike. Please stay tuned as we prepare for an exciting 11th Edition in 2020!
