In February last year, a team from yBC attended the International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF Berlin) for the first time, to interview over two dozen industry executives, for yBC’s Hospitality Channel.  Almost exactly 12 months on, we’re going back for more …

IHIF Berlin is the biggest conference of its type in the world, with hotel owners, investors, operators and consultants converging on Berlin’s Intercontinental Hotel for three days of meetings, presentations, events and networking.  A great environment for yBC to interview the thought leaders, movers, shakers, disruptors and commentators of one of the world’s most established industries.

While we may not have known much about the hospitality industry 18 months ago, we certainly feel like we do now.  We’ve built up a healthy stable of strategic partners and clients, which include Horwath HTL and their parent company Crowe Horwath International, Hotel Analyst, Bench Events, Hospitality People Group, Madison Mayfair and a new client: a boutique hotel group based in the UK.  Our involvement spans the UK, Europe and the Middle East.  We are also in discussions with some other interesting industry players, and hope to make an announcement soon.
