Social Business space

Focused speed-networking sessions for the hotelier community

 The Social Business Space, curated by Saatchi Art, designed by One World Interiors, is an environment where knowledge can be gained and shared. 

Taking the form of structured speed-networking – which is like 'speed-dating' but without the awkwardness – these targeted sessions allow you to meet, share ideas, and solve problems with the wider hotelier-community.

Built on the foundations of honesty and collaboration, the Social Business Space is a unique hotelier-only opportunity to connect and build long-lasting relationships in your 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.

Book your sessions below:


 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.
