Lausanne, March 2 2015 – The 6th annual Young Hoteliers Summit 2015 is delighted to announce its partnerships with Starwood Hotels & Resorts, FRHI Hotels & Resorts, and Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts as the Royal Sponsors, as well as with ITB Berlin as the Exclusive Industry Partner.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts are joining the Summit for the fourth year in a row. Having joined as Royal Sponsor for the first time in 2012 and acted as Challenge Provider in 2013, Starwood Hotels & Resorts have renewed another year of successful partnership with YHS. Starwood Hotels & Resorts have also been ranked as the most desirable Hotel Company Employer through the YHS Rankings Survey for the past two consecutive years.

FRHI Hotels & Resorts have made their comeback to the Summit after acting as the Challenge Provider for the 5th Edition. Having their Challenge – providing innovative ideas to implement the employer value proposition of CONNECT – GROW – LIVE and to bring together the three brands of Fairmont, Raffles and Swissôtel as one family – well tackled by the previous student delegates, YHS ensures to make their participation an another auspicious event. Four Seasons

Hotels & Resorts has also retained its partnership with YHS as a Royal Sponsor. Both FRHI Hotels & Resorts and Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts have been consecutively sponsoring YHS for the past editions, and YHS is proud to reaffirm its substantial partnership again for the upcoming edition.

On top of the reliable contributions from the Royal Sponsors, YHS is pleased to establish its first partnership with ITB Berlin as the Exclusive Industry Partner. At this year’s ITB Berlin, which will be held from 4th to 8th March, YHS will be presenting Youth TIP, which focuses on Talent, Ideas and Potential amongst youths with entrepreneurial ambitions, pursuing careers in hospitality, tourism and wider travel industries. As YHS aims to share how crucial dialogue, challenging discussion and collaboration between senior industry leaders and aspiring future hoteliers are to the development of the industry, the participation at ITB Berlin, the World’s Leading Travel Trade Show, aligns with and benefits the foundational value of YHS – bringing students and professionals together at one international forum.
