Young Hoteliers Summit: Millennials at the center of attention
With the start of the new semester, the YHS team is working tirelessly to prepare for the launch of the 9th edition, taking place from March 12th to 14th. During the summit, there will be keynote speeches and panel discussions revolving around one central topic: “Eyes on the Future: Following the Momentum of Growth”.

The focus of this panel lies in finding how different hospitality players can respond to the significant changes and cater to these novel needs. The panel has invited, among others, Klaus Kabelitz, General Manager of Belmond London, as well as Francois Delahaye, COO of Dorchester Collection, to interpret the topic through their own eyes. The panel will be moderated by David Samson, Associated Director of in the Travel, Leisure & Hospitality Advisory Team for Deloitte London.
On Tuesday, the focus lies on “The Changing Dynamics of Hotel Ownership”. Moderator, Russell Kett, Chairman of HVS London, will lead the discussion around trends in hotel property investment. An increasing number of institutions are investing in the hospitality sector, looking for stable and high-yield returns. Oliver Judge, Director of Asset Management of Park Hotels and Resort as well as Marc Socker from Invesco, will delve into the motives, actions and visions of the institutional investors.
The three-day summit is not only a unique opportunity to hear first-hand views on current topics in the hotel industry but it is also fully packed with activities, networking sessions as well as a very special gala dinner hosted at the Lausanne Olympic Museum.
