The HDI forum is for professionals and service providers along the project value chain to offer sustainable solutions for hotel projects and the whole life cycle of buildings.

Industry professionals fully engage with us on each step of a hotel development project. They will focus on topical issues, challenges, and solutions that can help us in performing our respective profession and address the issues of interest to all hotel development project participants.
HDI offers great insights into the essence of the circular economy and provides an in-depth understanding of where opportunities for implementing sustainable solutions can be found. It also encourages different stakeholders to rethink their business models, value chains and capacities for value creation.
The program focuses on the key aspects of a hotel development project:
- Planning & Development – Hotel concept and planning, project feasibility analysis and the business case, operating models, financing, project management, and construction.
- Financing & Investment – Conventional and alternative financing for hotel projects, hotel investment strategies as well as the management of risks of investing in hotel properties.
- Hotel Asset Management – The structuring and management of hotel assets, hotel revenue management, valuing hotel property, hotel acquisition, project exit, and asset disposition.
We will gain a firm understanding of the hotel life cycle to become more sustainable, effective, productive and successful in the hospitality industry.
The HDI forum is also the ideal opportunity for industry professionals to network with others who are involved in the sustainable development and investment in hotel projects and assets.
