The HSMAI Day and other matters

This week has been spent in Berlin, meeting lots of members and partners. Among other things we found it immensely interesting to learn more about the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group’s rebranding – to the Radisson Hotel Group, taking place in Berlin this week. More on the rebranding here.

We attended their ITB party, and here are a few of the snaps we took:

On Thursday we held a breakfast seminar and an afternoon seminar on the rapidly growing Chinese market. Next seminar on the subject will be in Amsterdam on 20 March and in Oslo 24 May, on both occasions followed by a debate. We hope to see you there!

Most of our Norwegian members are familiar with the HSMAI Day concept, domestically known as HSMAI-dagen. This year we have made a series of adjustments to the concept, which mainly will remain as you know it, and will be included in the HSMAI membership, to be set up in a number of cities throughout Europe, named The HSMAI Day:

More about The HSMAI Day

The HSMAI Day is a full day program meant to give you and your team an overview of what is going on in the industry. Trends, numbers and updates you need – and topics that HSMAI believes are important that we as an industry focus on. This year one of the important topics will be Winning for customers and company culture. The HSMAI Day will take place in several countries – all with some national adjustments.
