Hospitality executives discuss the hospitality climate at IHIF 2017

The International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF) is the European meeting place for the hospitality industry. Each year, the Berlin conference draws more than 2,000 delegates, representing the best and brightest of the industry. It also attracts a cross-section of hospitality company CEOs and other C-level executives, all of whom come to the three-day conference to network, get up to speed on the trending topics facing the industry and to discuss potential deals and investments.

The 2017 edition of IHIF was no exception. And in the video below, you'll hear what's on the minds of some of the top minds in the industry, including Arne Sorenson, the CEO of Marriott International; Richard Solomons, the CEO of InterContinental Hotels Group; Sébastien Bazin, CEO of AccorHotels; and David Kong, CEO of Best Western Hotels & Resorts. They clue us in on what's going on with their companies and where the hospitality as a whole is headed.

Enjoy and see you in 2018!
