Unusual times call for unusual measures. With this in mind, the leading hotel investment conferences in Vienna, INTERNATIONAL HOTEL INVESTMENT & DESIGN CONFERENCE and HOSPITALITY GIPFEL, have decided to come together to host the first international hotel investment conference in the ‘new-normal’.
… after the last few months of virtual meetings, online conferences and perfecting the art of Zoom business meetings, it certainly is time to meet again. Noticing the desire of the industry to gather in person, we have taken
the conscious decision to hold this conference with physical presence on 30 November & 1 December 2020.
We can assure you that we will be following the ‘leading global protocol for the new normal for meetings & events’, published by the World Travel & Tourism Council.The facilities at the Hotel Andaz Vienna are large enough to accommodate 200 participants taking into account the one metre distance rule when seated at the conference table. Please rest assured your health is of our upmost importance.
Our industry has to continually redefine itself, especially in the circumstances we face this year, hence, we would like to show our support to our industry.
We are operating in an increasingly complex environment with countless drivers of constant change and innovation. Even though the set up may be slightly different, we are still inviting the movers & shakers, technology players and game changers to speak about the latest trends and developments in the industry.
We are certainly looking forward to meeting you again!
