Katrina Craig Chief Executive Officer, Hotel Solutions Partnership attended the International Hotel Investment Forum in Berlin Monday 6th – Wednesday 8th March 2017.
This year was the 20th anniversary of the IHIF, a three-day event attended by over 2000 hospitality and tourism decision-makers from over 70 countries. Attracting senior executives from nearly every major hotel chain, the IHIF is a premier platform for HSP to network and showcase the skills and services.
Katrina had three intense days of meetings with representatives of Carlson Rezidor, Kempinski, Viceroy Hotel Group and the Dorchester Collection, among many others.
HSP were also very pleased to co-host a dinner with Greenberg Traurig law at the Michelin-starred 5 Cinco restaurant on Tuesday 7th March. Katrina and Eric Rosedale, Chairman of GT’s Real Estate department, were joined by clients for a lively evening of discussions and networking.
As well as such excellent networking opportunities, the IHIF conference sessions were of great interest with experienced and senior speakers covering a range of issues facing investors, hotel owners, lenders, lawyers and more in the industry in the current economic climate and over the year to come.
“The IHIF this year was a particularly well-attended and busy few days, and I am very excited at the interesting discussions I had with both established and new contacts in Berlin and it was very satisfying to see HSP in a strong position to offer a wide range of expertise at such a high level” said Katrina upon her return.
