The Hotel Management Thailand Summit (HMT), the region’s leading conference, will return to Bangkok on 25 May 2017. Over 150 international speakers and delegates are expected to attend the much anticipated event. HMT is produced by international conference producer Questex Hospitality Group and will gather senior hoteliers where they will discuss ways to thrive through generating revenue and boosting operational efficiency.
Despite the memorable events Thailand has experienced within the past few years, tourist arrivals are expected to grow by year’s end, yet with numerous hotels opening, fierce competition abound.
Themed, “Inspire Viable Strategies to Boost Revenue and Profit for Vibrant Hoteliers,” HMT serves as a platform for senior hoteliers comprised of Corporate-level CEOs/ Presidents, COOs and CFOs, VP operations, Property-level GMs, Financial Controllers, Director of operations,and hotel owners and managing directors.
2016 speaker Wayne Buckingham, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific, FRHI Hotels & Resorts described the benefit of attending this event: “…you need to be flexible, you need to adapt. And spending time at the conference, it gives you a lot of ideas and different thinking so you can open your mind to possibilities than what you might not see every day.”
Last year, over 150 delegates representing 93 organizations took part in the closed-door conference. From start to finish, delegates savored the latest topics.
“Attending the Hotel Management Thailand Summit is an eye-opener, as it shows an unvarnished picture of the“state of the industry”and flagrantly reveals that learning never should stop! If more hospitality stakeholders would take the time to attend, most of Thailand’s hostels and resorts would be in a much better shape!,” said Bert van Walbeek, Managing Director of THE WINNING EDGE.
The 2017 summit will reflect on the post-merger competitive landscapes of Bangkok and various key markets, focusing on ramifications and strategies to excel for hoteliers working for chains and independents alike. Other hot topics of concerns will also make their ways onto the conference agenda to help inspire leading hotel managers for better financial results.
HMT Summit 2017 is part of the Hotel Management Asia summit Series, Asia’s only truly regional hotel management conference series. The series will rotate through Bangkok, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Indonesia this year by leveraging regional experiences, insights, and innovations to address market-specific challenges.
