"Last year I had attended the Summit-Leaders in Hospitality CEE & CIS in Prague for the first time. I was impressed by the professional organization, high attendance of leading experts from the international hospitality industry but above all the interesting combination of keynote speeches, panel discussions, round tables, socializing and networking convinced me to participate also this year. Such events, in my view of professionalism, offer a wide range of opportunities to gain in depth knowledge, best practice examples and to share my long lasting experiences especially in CEE region with other international colleagues. I always emphasize that the players in the hospitality industry have to act together with our environment becoming more competitive and challenging. CEE is definitely a very attractive market with big growth opportunity and further development potential. In the next few years I see good prospects for international brands, developers, investors and suppliers to bring know-how and build together with the local players a great hospitality environment"said Ivona Meissner-CEO, Best Western Hotels Central Europe.
The dialogue between over 200 hospitality thought leaders who have extensive knowledge and understanding of the region, gives a very unique opportunity to the industry to attempt in solving their difficulties the industry faces together.

In times of anticipated development growth within the region compared to the consolidated western European markets, the summit provides a great platform to drive this. Warsaw as the Capital of Poland is a great choice for the event as Poland has been a driver of growth in CEE over the past years and continues to offer great opportunities. I very much look forward to meeting my expert colleagues from the industry, exchanging ideas & business contacts, getting inspired and enjoy networking with the industry peers.
