01 Mar 2017

6 – 8 March 2017
Hotel InterContinental Berlin

PKF hotelexperts is again proud to be a sponsor of the IHIF which is again taking place at the Hotel InterContinental Berlin from
6 to 8 March 2017. We will be located at Stand 43. Our colleagues from Austria, Germany, Italy and the UK will be present and look forward to meeting with you during the event. 

Once again, Michael Widmann, Managing Partner of PKF hotelexperts, will host the IHIF Brand X-Ray session - the interactive discussion focused on a review and "check-up" of four new hotel brands. The panel will be held in the Charlottenburg III room on Tuesday, 7 March 2017, from 15:00 to 16:00.

This year’s session, titled “What makes a brand a success and how to deliver it? An in-depth diagnosis of new brands and concepts in hospitality”, will examine four brands  - Yotel, The Student Hotel, Zoku, prizeotel - based on the following criteria: investment costs, contracts, architecture/design, floor area/programming and competitive positioning.

The Brand X-Ray panel of experts, who will present their commentary and critique, is composed of Scott Antel, Partner, Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP, Erich Bernard, Owner, BWM Architects, Tarna Schmidt,
Managing Director, Pure Black Hotels GmbH and the session host and moderator Michael Widmann.
