The workshop leaders are experts based in their respective markets and we expect that the advice given will be very valuable for the delegates in attendance."

Hot.E will be held immediately following the launch of the first Hotel Data Conference Europe (HDC), with honorary hosts STR Global and . Hot.E and the HDC will feature a joint gala reception on the evening of Tuesday, 6 September 2011, to enable the delegates from both events to meet and network.
