HSMAI provides ideal platforms, forums and working groups, which serve as a think-tank on how to manoeuvre through today’s challenges.”
Ingunn Hofseth, president and CEO, HSMAI Europe, said: “Andreas’s contribution as the region’s chair, along with the new DACH advisory board, will be a great source of support and guidance for members, not only for strategic and revenue management insights but offering businesses new avenues to recruit talent and networking events aimed to boost the pipeline of new business.
“Even through the pandemic, the hospitality industry in the DACH region has shown great determination and resilience to keep going. 2022 promises to be a year for a green shoots’ recovery. Once travel restrictions lift, whether it’s for business, leisure or “bleisure”, we will want to meet, connect and explore new destinations and cultures. This is an exciting time for the hospitality, event and travel professionals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland to capitalise on opportunities.”
