After a successful event in Istanbul last month, One Planet Rating founder and CEO Richard Lindberg is headed to Amsterdam in March to attend a conference, conducted by I Meet Hotel, as a panelist. Richard is participating in the discussion on how the hospitality industry can up their game in the sustainability race. Krakow-based organization I Meet Hotel, the organizers behind the conference, is hosting its fourth event, and prides itself in being the first global industry event organizer connecting hoteliers to the future of hospitality.
What is I Meet Hotel
I Meet Hotel aims to provide hoteliers with insights into new technologies, innovative business models, trends in marketing and media, and customer loyalty. The conference brings influential names in the hospitality industry in conversation with hoteliers, to increase hoteliers’ knowledge, help them make the best decisions about their business and potentially tap into new sources of revenue. I Meet Hotel is the channel through which networks and partnerships are built, and where business opportunities are uncovered.
A look at past events
The first two events took place in Poland – Warsaw and Krakow to be specific. The third took place last month in Istanbul. After the success of the initial two events, I Meet Hotel is now designed as a traveling conference. Within Poland, they have already built partnerships with over 27 hospitality and travel services.
A peek into the events this year
The Istanbul event was the biggest one they’ve hosted so far. It brought together industry experts who offered an engaging and intellectual discussion around topics such as AI, the environmental impact of the hotel industry, sustainability and more.
The upcoming event in Amsterdam will cover topics including
- Tourism and the future of growth
- Localization of customer facing content
- Automation of group travel
- Ways a hotel can lessen their environmental footprint (A panel discussion Richard will be part of)
As I Meet Hotel is a traveling conference, they have planned four additional stops in 2020. All of these aim at engaging with the local hospitality community.
