Keynote Panel: Hospitality CEO Panel


March 7, 2019

11:00 - 11:45

CityCube Berlin, Auditorium A4/A5

The ITB Hospitality CEO Panel focuses on strategies and trends in the global hotel business. CEOs of leading hotel groups discuss the new role of hotels – as “augmented hospitality” – that goes far beyond actual accommodation services. What will hotel products of the future look like, and what role will digitalization play? Which markets will expand in the future, and how will the hotel distribution of tomorrow look? And last but not least: How are hotel companies dealing with the massive changes in tourists’ perceptions of luxury?

Moderated by:

Marc Aeberhard, Owner, Luxury Hotel & Spa Management Ltd

Chris Cahill, CEO, AccorHotels Luxury Brands

Puneet Chhatwal, Managing Director & CEO, Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, Indian Hotels Company Ltd.
