The HospitalityInside Think Tank >> Register now!

Be inspired

HITT – the HospitalityInside Think Tank – is an unconventional, English-speaking
networking event on a solar-powered ship launched in 2018.

Casual, but with high-calibre experts from inside and outside the industry.
Limited in number, not in quality.
Inspiring deep thoughts instead of shallow PR talk.
Personal, direct, interactive and off-the-record.

The floating forum is a place to share knowledge, exchange ideas and develop solutions
for the industry’s most pressing issues: digitalisation, sustainability and human resources.

Senior executives and experts from hotel operation, hotel real estate, finance, sustainability,
digital transformation, legal and HR are most welcome.

Let’s take this journey to find answers together!
