Digitalisation & AI

Friend or foe?

Learn more about the era of digitalisation and AI in an informal way.
This premiere Think Tank is the first of a series of Think Tanks, with a unique event location and different way of communication,  knowledge and experience exchange.

Save the date:
Monday, June 11, 2018, Berlin, Germany

and the evening before, June 10, for the get-together

What’s new?

YOU lead the direction of the brain storms and share YOUR own concerns,
not just hypothetical ones.

Fear of change arises when development and – often confusing – information follows each other in quick succession.
Which strategies should top managers follow, and how can they screen the deluge of provided information? In daily business, there is no longer enough time to find a satisfactory answer. Let’s find answers together!

Get inspired!

Inspiring Impulses

By outsiders, not involved in the Hospitality Industry.
Impulse generators from sciences, research, industry, real estate and more, will provide food for thought.


Incorporating know-how

You can’t hold back the future, you have to understand how to shape it!

Current digitalisation is driven by industry, innovators, entrepreneurs and lateral thinkers – on a global and comprehensive level. HITT focus to incorporate these groups. Their knowledge drives the development – and we will share, analyse, explain and aim for solutions, face2face, in direct talks.
The results will become an important part of the post-event communication, in accordance with the editorial high-quality standards of hospitalityInside.com.

New role of sponsors

We see sponsors as content partners, who like to support, develop or contribute
to solutions or help us to drive forward new ideas in HITT.
