hotel & tourism forum - a new format for hospitality networking
17 Dec 2018
An important step was taken towards the development of a circuit of events on a European scale dedicated to investments in the hospitality sector. PKF hotelexperts, which - together with Andreas Martin - is already is involved in the organisation of hotelforum in Munich, together with GIVI srl and Giorgio Bianchi, formed a new company called hotel & tourism forum S.r.l.
Based in Milan, its purpose is to develop - not just in Italy, but on a European scale - the format which was previously known as Tourism Investment. Since 2014, this has become a benchmark for the hospitality & tourism real estate sector. It brings together investors, developers, construction companies, hotel groups, individual hotels, public institutions, consultants and suppliers for the hospitality sector.
The objective of the new entity is to join forces (Milan, Munich and beyond) to create an integrated circuit of events. The two events under the new name hotel & tourism forum take place annually in Milan (parallel to Salone del Mobile in April) and Munich (parallel to the real estate fair EXPO REAL in October) and will create a complementary offer for the European market.
hotel & tourism forum Milan focuses on hospitality investment & design. The event has a geographic emphasis on Italy and the whole Mediterranean area. In 2019, it will consist of a cocktail reception (Sunday, 7 April), a conference and gala dinner (Monday, 8 April) and a hospitality-focused exhibition (from Monday, 8 April to Sunday 14 April). A venue of over 4000 square meters will host conference rooms, display areas and futuristic installations illustrating what the public areas in hotels may look like in the next few years.
Having run for more than 15 years, hotel & tourism forum Munich focuses on hospitality investment & real estate, with a particular emphasis on Germany and Central Europe. Next year’s event will be held on 9 October 2019.
The partnership between the parties will guarantee synergies as a result of shared knowledge and contacts, enabling effective networking of participants and further improvement in the product range for all the companies involved.
