Munich (September 23, 2022). The series of crises after Corona and the resulting topics in the hotel industry could fill two conference days this year. Expo Real has therefore bundled the core topics all the more and filled the panels of its hotel conference with top-class hospitality experts. The "Hospitality Industry Dialogue" (HID) will take place on the first day of the fair.

The meeting point for all hospitality fans is on Tuesday, 4 October 2022, in the Planning & Partnerships Forum in Hall A1 - right next to the hotel exhibitors. The first five discussion panels will take place from 10 am and until 6 pm. There will be another panel with a hospitality theme on Wednesday at 3.30pm-4.30pm in Hall A3, the Real Estate Innovation Forum.

The panels will be held in German and English. There will be simultaneous translation.
