The upcoming International Hospitality Investment Forum (IHIF) has been delayed until next autumn. The event, initially scheduled to take place in May, has now been moved back to September 6-8. Organisers are hoping that the roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines across Europe will make in-person events increasingly viable moving into the summer next year. The revised event will take place at the InterContinental Berlin, Germany.
A statement from the officials mentioned that it has been an extraordinary year for the world and by extension the hospitality industry. It stated that the forum’s mission has been to listen to the market and build a platform for collaboration ever since the launch in 1998. It also mentioned that the organisation will take the time to connect with the advisory board, sponsors, delegates, and partners to understand needs and address them with match-made access to contacts, capital and, of course, community.
The authorities also shared in the statement that the global hospitality industry’s path back to normality will take time, but in the hands of the forum’s community, comprised of the most senior and knowledgeable leaders in the industry, it is only a matter of time before the path leads back to profitability.
