About Us

ABOUT OUR CONFERENCE

It has been an eventful few years for hoteliers in Thailand. In-bound tourism is back on a growth trajectory, with record-high foreign arrivals expected. Nonetheless, fierce competition abound, and hotels strive to generate revenue and boost operational efficiency to thrive. Pricing and yield optimization continue to remain the top concerns, while value creation, product differentiation and new revenue streams receive significant attention.

The leading conference in Thailand that directly addresses all operational/management challenges, Hotel Management Thailand Summit provides a platform for hotel executives from both corporate level and property level to discuss key operational, branding and financial issues directly impacting corporate and property P&L.

The 2016 HMT Summit saw well-round discussions on growth and innovation, which will resume in 2017’s conference. The summit will reflect on the post-merger competitive landscapes of Bangkok and various key markets, focusing on ramifications and strategies to excel for hoteliers working for chains and independents alike. Other hot topics of concerns will also make their ways onto the conference agenda to help inspire leading hotel managers for better financial results.

What People Say About Us

"HMT was an excellent opportunity for me to understand Thailand's hotel market better especially since I am quite new to this region. The summit provided a platform for like minded hotel professionals to network and engage and I definitely gained a lot from it. The insights were rich and the speaker selection was outstanding. I would definitely attend next year as well."

Anand Jindal, director - Revenue Management - W BANGKOK

"The HMT Summit is fast becoming a leading industry event in Thailand offering a great opportunity to expand your knowledge and network in the Thailand hospitality market."

Leanne Harwood, Vice President Operations - South East Asi - IHG

"Attending the Hotel Management Thailand Summit is an eye-opener, as it shows an unvarnished picture of the "state of the industry" and flagrantly reveals that learning never should stop! If more hospitality stakeholders would take the time to attend, most of Thailand's hotels and resorts would be in a much better shape!"

Bert van Walbeek, Managing Director - THE WINNING EDGE

"Having attended the past two Hotel Management Thailand Summits, this event is now a must-attend event not only for myself and senior executives within my Hotel as well as many of my peers. The calibre and quality of the event, its speakers and topics is second to none, and I look forward to attending the event each and every year."
