Focused networking sessions for the hotel community

The Social Business Space, in partnership with HotelloTop, is a unique space designed by PTMD where knowledge can be gained and shared. Featuring four targeted sessions a day, these tailored campfire-esque sessions provide a unique mix of presentation and problem-solving for hoteliers.

Built on the foundations of honesty and collaboration, the Social Business Space is a unique opportunity to connect and build long-lasting relationships in the hotel industry, all whilst in a beautifully designed space with complimentary beverages!

Plus, ‘conversation cards’ will be provided so if you’re not sure what you’ll talk about, we’ll give you some helpful questions to get the conversation flowing.

For a taste of what to expect, take a look at last year's agenda below - and check back Janury 31 for the new line-up!


 Wednesday 8 May - 12:30 - 13:15
Thursday 9 May - 12:15 - 13:00

Scaling up your business is considered a challenge in any industry. Join this sharing forum to get vital intel on how to pick your locations, obtain funding, navigate the red tape, keep brand integrity… and how to somehow be in several places at once! From other hoteliers going through the same experiences. 


The Future is Female

 Wednesday 8 May - 15:15 - 16:00
Thursday 9 May - 15:45 - 16:30

Only 25.5% of senior executives in the hotel industry are female and until we reach 50%, women only conversations are essential. We invite you to come and meet women from across the European hotel industry to share ideas, stories and plan how to smash the glass ceiling no matter what your career goals are. 


'Independently-Spirited’ Hoteliers

 Wednesday 8 May - 14:00 - 14:45

Supporting our thriving community, this session is dedicated to every passionate hotelier. We invite owners and GMs to connect and share stories, challenges and experiences on everything from training and service, to marketing tips and finding the best suppliers. We are stronger together! 


Young Future Leaders Summit 

 Thursday 9 May - 14:45 - 15:30

Bringing together up-and-coming young hoteliers with current industry leaders for a fast-paced networking session, we’re exploring new ideas for how to change the industry as well as what newcomers can learn from experience.
