Young Hoteliers Summit (YHS)
Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne
The 8th Edition of the Young Hotelier’s Summit seeks to evaluate, assess, and adapt the traditional hospitality business model. In today's hospitality industry, fast moving digital players increasingly gain importance in catering to an ever changing consumer behavior. The unstable environment of the industry drives the need to reinvigorate business practices and calls for the introduction of creative new structures. Hospitality firms are currently going through a critical evolution period where strategic decision-making is key for individual firms to remain competitive. By involving a range of stakeholders, we aim to guide our delegates and students through the hospitality innovation process. The 8th edition will question and reassess hospitality companies from within, including product innovation, branding as well as an increased focus on strategy planning. YHS will host panel discussions, keynote speeches, and workshops which will examine these processes from a student, academic, and industry point of view.
