As always, the day-long industry conference offers delegates the chance to network with other leading industry professionals from all sectors of the hospitality industry, including design, supply, operations and development. Guest and keynote speakers will discuss industry trends and give their expertise on what challenges the hotel market faces and offers insight into solutions on how to manage these challenges. Panel discussions tackle pertinent issues in the industry and provoke engaging conversations and debate around central themes facing the hotel world today. Design also takes centre stage with the Creative Spark portion of every event, which is often a highlight for the attendees. Three recently completed or currently under construction projects that excel in the field of design are shortlisted in the Creative Spark category, and members from each hotel’s team will present their project, after which a winner will be announced in the evening. A networking session is planned between each of the key events during the day, giving participants the opportunity to get to know one another, ensuring that everyone comes away with new peers and colleagues, crafting new working relationships and collaborations. This portion of the day is called the Change Table Session, and organises six different companies around each table, switching after a certain period of time.
