Young Hoteliers Summit (YHS) 2019: YHS Blast Off
March 18, 2019 1:59pm
In commensuration with honouring the 10th anniversary of YHS and its accomplishments, the umbrella topic of this year’s edition ‘The Scope of Hospitality: Envisioning – Defining – Succeeding’ seeks to narrate hospitality success stories and at the same time construct a guiding path for aspiring leaders of the industry. The hospitality industry has evolved into a dynamic and complex scene with never-ending transitions in consumer behaviour and constantly emerging online disruptors. This 10th Edition will therefore explore various topics from global brand expansion strategies to data mining and collection.
Divided over the course of three days, the 10th Edition of YHS will feature a total of five keynote speeches and five panel discussions. YHS has proudly partnered with some of the industry’s biggest names, including The Dorchester Collection, Four Seasons, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Hospitality Financial & Technology Professionals (HFTP), STR, Emil Frey, and TINT. Keynote speakers include Olivier Bracard, Co-Founder and CEO of Hosco, and Tess Mattisson, Director of European Marketing at Choice Hotels. Meanwhile, joining our panel discussions are hospitality veterans such as Eugenio Pirri, Chief People and Culture Officer of The Dorchester Collection and Dimitris Manikis, President & Director EMEA of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.
For the very first time, YHS is incredibly excited to welcome Virgin Galactic, the world’s premier commercial space line. Martijn Brouwer, YHS keynote speaker and currently responsible for Astronaut Experience and Hospitality at Virgin Galactic, works towards ensuring his customers have a blast both on the ground and in space. Julian Manning, Head of Speakers for YHS, explains “We are incredibly privileged to welcome such an incredible line-up taking YHS to the next level. I am convinced that the immense interest we have received from leading industry experts is proof of the positive impact this platform has globally.”
In addition, YHS is proud to announce the five panel topics that will be discussed over the course of the summit:
These panel discussions seek to investigate some of the most pressing issues faced by the hospitality industry, including talent management and retention, managing an increasingly complex distribution landscape, as well as the successes and challenges of taking a brand international. They will also delve into the future of hospitality with the growing prominence of Big Data in the industry, as well as the increasing need to redefine service quality with the rapid advancements of technology and ever-changing consumer needs. In bringing forth these important topics of discussion, YHS hopes to serve as a platform and accelerator to stimulate the growth of the industry by generating ideas and discussing plausible solutions.
Tickets to attend the summit are now available for purchase here. YHS looks forward to welcoming you at this incredible opportunity to join over 30 industry professionals and students from 45 first-class hospitality institutions, to network and gain interesting insights through thought-provoking discussions and speeches.
The 10th edition of the Young Hoteliers Summit will take place at Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, Switzerland from the 25th to 27th of March 2019.
