Ecole Hoteliere De Lausanne, Switzerland

Lausanne, January 27, 2015 – The Young Hoteliers Summit is proud to launch its 6th Edition and announce its partnership with The Dorchester Collection as Challenge Provider.

This year’s Young Hoteliers Summit will focus on the transition from classic to contemporary hospitality and aims to address the issues that enhance competition and shape decisions that drive the industry forward. Participants will evaluate the evolving trends and assess the impact of global economic developments on the travel and tourism trade. Key topics of discussion will include the future power of OTAs, the effect of the millennial generation entering the workforce, the impact of the sharing economy on traditional hotels, and much more.

YHS anticipates the involvement of 33 international hospitality schools, having Takoradi Polytechnic Ghana, Royal Roads University, and Cesar Ritz Colleges join for the first time. Keynote talks and workshops from several industry speakers will be giving partakers an excellent networking opportunity.

As Challenge Provider, The Dorchester Collection is the main partner of the summit, presenting the delegates the Creativity Challenge – a current Human Resources issue of the brand on which delegates will collaborate to generate innovative and actionable solutions. The Dorchester Collection’s passion for excellence and innovation along with their commitment to impeccable hospitality service makes them a great fit as Challenge Provider for the 6th Edition of YHS. 

Eugenio Pirri (Vice President, People & Organization Development) and Ana Brant (Director, Global Guest Experience & Innovation) will present this year’s Challenge Provider Keynote topic.

Join us next March to discover new possibilities and create networks for the future.
