The Summit has been hosted at Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne every year since its introduction in 2010. YHS attracts students, the academic body and professionals by taking advantage of its position as the most influential student-organized hospitality summit on a global scale. Through keynote speeches, workshops and the YHS Challenge, all participants are integrated to have a positive and meaningful experience from the 3-day Summit. Whether as a company receiving targeted analysis on a component of their business, as a student generating a unique project in a resourceful learning environment or as a community building strong relationships for the future, YHS offers a win-win situation to everyone.

YHS is an independent event, organized by a selected team of students from EHL. It takes place over three days every year, welcoming delegates from 40 leading hospitality institutions along with some of the most influential operators in hospitality. The Young Hoteliers Summit has evolved as an institution by feeding on the growth of the hospitality industry. Currently, our communicative platform empowers international professionals and students to share ideas and knowledge, accelerating progression in our industry.
