Networking Events

Networking is the main reason why so many executives attend IHIF. Opportunities to network are provided throughout the conference, from the lunches, coffee breaks, exhibition to the lavish evening receptions. The sponsors’ exhibition area is an excellent place to meet delegates during the conference. To make best use of your time, join the Networking XPress session where you can meet around 60 contacts in just 90 minutes!


NEW to IHIF this year is an exciting area dedicated to hotel technology. Through a mix of interactive discussions, masterclasses, demonstrations and an exhibition the Hotel Tech Hub will provide an space where where hotel owners, operators and their partners can better understand the latest technology innovations.

The sponsors and exhibitors are the key players in the industry and they invest in IHIF because they want to do business with you. Many new products and solutions were showcased in the IHIF exhibition hall. There was also a number of countries and tourism representatives keen to show areas for development across the globe. Senior-level hotel executives joined advisors, consultants, lawyers, designers, architects, financiers and technology services representatives in the exhibition hall.




Networking Online

Networking can begin before you even get to the conference.

At IHIF we use a fantastic pre-event contact system that enables you to begin networking and arrange valuable meetings before you arrive. The system will go live in January, and registered delegates will receive details of how to use it. Here are some of the benefits:

  • View personalised recommendations of other attendees with matching interests
  • Communicate with attendees and sponsoring companies securely
  • Plan your itinerary from the sessions list and networking events
  • Plan one-to-one meetings at the event
  • Access your profile through the IHIF website or mobile.

Networking xPress

Networking xPress was a great way to start the three days in Berlin. Delegates made more make more contacts in an hour than a whole year’s worth of road trips! 


IHIF is known for its fabulous lunches, which not only offer first-class catering from our host hotel but are also great networking opportunities.  Lunch on Tuesday 6th  March will be a networking buffet and on Wednesday 7th March 2018 was a sit-down, three-course meal to close the conference.
