The 18th edition of hotelforum will be held once more on 7 October 2020. Decision-makers from the European hotel and real estate industry join up again for industry know-how transfer and networking.
The conference starts with new masterclasses related to digitalisation topics to be followed by the presentation of innovative hotel projects and new hotel brands (project showcases). In the afternoon the focus will be on various aspects of hotel development. Panel discussions, lectures, business speed dating and the "Techno pitch" for start-ups with smart, digital technologies, the Hospitality UPGRADE Award ceremony and the CEO presentation with results of the previous workshop round off the day programme.
During the hotelforum gala, two industry awards will be presented in front of around 450 guests: The Hotel Property Award for outstanding new hotels and the Hospitality Innovation Award for outstanding achievements of a representative or organisation of the hospitality industry.
