26-27 September 2022
Vienna, Austria


The Hotel Development & Investment – Sustainable Solutions workshop/forum guides us through the whole life cycle of sustainable hotel projects – from the project concept, business study, financing and development to investing, asset management, property operation and disposition.

HDI Vienna 2022 is a workshop where stakeholders in hotel projects will interact and consider services and solutions for sustainable property development and hotel operations.  It is a forum for hotel and property development professionals to discuss and promote solutions for sustainable hotels and the built environment.

The HDI workshop/forum is for solution providers to promote sustainable circular solutions for hotel projects along the entire value chain and the whole life cycle.  The sustainable development of projects calls for sustainable architecture and design, sustainable procurement, sustainable construction, sustainable financing, sustainable investing, sustainable operation as well as sustainable property disposition and deconstruction.

Industry professionals fully engage with us on each step of a hotel development project, share with us their expertise on the topics, and provide us with cross-functional collaboration opportunities.  They 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.

HDI is a continuous development program for professionals in the real estate and hospitality industries, including property developers, architects, designers, contractors, consultants, lenders, investors, operators, and suppliers.  The workshop/forum calls for cross-functional collaboration between the speakers and the participants.

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 workshop/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.


These professionals in the hospitality industry will fully engage with us, communicate their expertise to us and provide us cross-functional collaboration opportunities.  They focus on topical issues, challenges and solutions that can help us in performing our respective profession.
