Engage, Question, Gain Ideas.
Hear the ideas and thinking from high
calibre impulse generators, hotel industry leaders, and technology
innovators! We will share, analyse, explain and aim for solutions.
Let’s find answers together!
Be inspired by our digital Think Tank.
What’s new in 2020?
The Think Tank itself becomes digital!
Corona is driving digitization – hotels can also benefit from it.
The first purely digital HITT think tank adapts and
opens up to more participants.
Only the format changes, the content remains as demanding as it was discussed before the outbreak of the Corona crisis.
The topic “Boost Your Service Delivery. Bring Hotels to Life in a Digital World” will remain, just as all impulse generators
and sponsors continue to fully support the event.
The planned extension of the programme to two days will be dropped, we will concentrate on Tuesday, June 23.
The participation fee will decrease.
“HITT proved more than expected, in an atmosphere of voluntary sharing knowledge. A joy to participate.”
“After a very inspiring Think Tank 2018, I’m awaiting the next meeting eagerly for a helpful exchange among colleagues.”
“For those who want to know which conference could be a useful investment of time: for me, the HITT is definitely one of them. Important topics; presentations with new contents worth knowing; panel discussions on a high contextual level; and a conference location and setting, which is an experience in itself and offers good opportunities for establishing new contacts.”
“High-class speakers, important topics, selected guests at a very special extraordinary location – a unique event in our industry!”
“The reality check did us all a lot of good and forced us to see that other sectors are facing much greater challenges. We have “the final mile”, i.e. in the end, we still have the guests in our hotels and can use this to our advantage!”
“For me, HITT is a great combination of networking, “Food for Thought”, exchanging ideas, knowledge transfer and new perspectives! On top: a perfect seminar location and a relaxed accompanying programme. Thank you very much!”
“The speakers and presentation at HITT were at a very high level, inspiring discussions among hospitality professionals and giving food for thought for our everyday challenges. However, for me the most important learning was how essential it is to take some time to sit, exchange, network and create a platform. We are already looking forward to meeting with the HITT participants again and to continue being part of this special hospitality community.”
“Already in 2018, HITT promised to be and become an inspirational think tank for professional leaders in the Hospitality Industry. This was topped in 2019 by insights from different industry leaders combined with challenging Q&A sessions, excellent networking opportunities and promising workshops in the future.”
“The HITT, Edition 2 was yet another step-up from the first version in 2018. The Hotel-Tech world has a love-hate relationship, and the legacy system landscape has still many hurdles to take without aligned industry standards. The input of ‘out-of-the-box’ speakers created an environment of active and open interaction. The 2020 HITT will be enriched with hotel asset owners and investors as well. Great prospects for deepened exchange.”
“2. HITT – next level. Very fruitful collaboration and helpful discussion with senior executive colleagues regarding a topic, all of us are putting a lot of efforts in. Let‘s face the challenge together. Very much looking forward to our upcoming workshops and next year’s meeting.”
“Not bullshit bingo, but a deep, forward-looking exchange of ideas.”
“The Think Tank stimulated me to open up to the discussed topics and to leave my personal comfort zone several times in the discussion, in an environment with like-minded, creative industry colleagues and carefully guided by competent moderators. The Think Tank has given me a valuable new perspective, something that inspires me in my daily routine.”
“HITT 2019 – Even better than the 1st edition. Relaxed atmosphere, lively discussions and great people! We at Sabre are proud to be part of HITT where we develop and support new ways of digitalization and retailing in the hospitality market.”
