IT’S ALL ABOUT PEOPLE

One of the characteristics of European Hotel Managers’ Association (EHMA) is its incredible ability to attract, every year, world-class speakers who come to exchange in an elitist and friendly atmosphere with the greatest CEOs of the European hospitality industry.

Indeed, after such exceptional personalities as Gugliemo L. Brentel, Alexander Bard, Professor Dimitrios Buhalis, Dr John Kalogerakis and Mark V. Lomanno, to name but a few, last year in Cyprus, this year again great names agreed to join the EHMA AGM in the Netherlands, as, for instance, the Educational Day is moderated by Sander Allegro, owner of INNovations Hospitality Consultancy, while keynote speakers such as Hans Meyer and Michel Rochat participated in a panel on hotel business education.

HUMAN VALUES ARE AT THE HEART OF EHMA’S DNA AND IN THAT OF THE INDUSTRY AT LARGE

This incredible thought leadership does not flourish in the classic sense of “professional seminars”, but in a friendly “family-like” context, and the word is not too strong, where most participants come accompanied by their companions or mates. Also here, we welcomed many EHMA partners who participate also year after year in this genuine milestone of European industry, allowing it to benefit in priority from their latest technological advances.

It is moreover an accomplishment that is renewed from year to year that EHMA realises in advancing the industry in it operates while developing real friendship among members, partners and close contacts.

EHMA succeeds in this “tour de force” simply because human values are at the heart of its DNA and in that of the industry at large.
