Symposium "Efficient use of Space" on 19 March in Munich - With hotel visits

How are creative hotel concepts calculated?

Munich (January 12, 2018). Hotel rooms in Germany are becoming increasingly smaller and more efficient, without having to relinquish their stylish design standards. Budget hotels have proved that the same amount or even more money can be made from rooms of just 15-19 sq.m. in size, compared to the 22-24 sq.m. rooms of the large 4-star hotels. The secret is to be found in their clever design. Learn more from the major names of the sector – from experts from GBI AG, Invesco Real Estate, Motel One, Ruby Hotels and a2 architecture. On Monday 19 March 2018, hotelbau and will hold a one-day symposium on "Efficient use of space in hotel planning and operation" at the Hotel Sofitel Bayerpost Munich. The day is rounded off with the visit of three hotels in Munich.

In an ocean of waves

Dear Insiders,
The team of hospitalityInside wishes you a very Happy New Year – with fewer of the burdens and more of the happiness of 2017! 2018 will probably keep us all going in full motion: consolidations, cost pressure, frustration with OTAs, and technology trends in high-speed will give many top managers the feeling of being driven (again). Who is currently able to note down a strategy until 2020, a question I keep asking myself at the end-of-the-year review of 2017.
The first request merger – Barceló purchases NH – already burst in the first week of January. The nail-biter concerning the future of NH Hotels, which are controlled by Chinese HNA, continues. The Chinese people will not stop travelling in 2018, predicts our columnist Prof Wolfgang Arlt today: Instead of holiday makers, they will become holiday creators and go on discovery journeys.
What does it mean to manage "hordes" of holiday makers? My colleague Hans-Juergen Klesse investigated this topic in an unusual way – in the waste belly of a TUI cruise ship. And he also learned how to save tons of leftover food and money with only a few measures.
The real estate brokers experienced that there is more capital in the market than available hotel properties: For lack of assets, 2017 ended without new transaction records, in Germany and in Austria alike. However, the investors' desire for safe havens seems to be unabated, and this will increase the speed in the hotel real estate world even further in 2018. Also Amsterdam does not "benefit" from the hotel ban: The investors' demand remains undiminished.
One of the world's most famous and richest hotel investors, Prince Alwaleed, had to apparently exchange his "golden jail", the Ritz-Carlton in Riyadh, for a real prison this week; the drama surrounding the Saudi royal family and the Kingdom Holding seems to be far from over.
In the new year, the waves will continue to be high, socially as well as politically. Therefore, it is important to stay afloat in this wave pool, keep a calm head and to consider well, which wave to ride. Currently, all our vigour and lifeblood is flowing into the realisation of the HITT Think Tank, which we announced before Christmas and which will take place in June in Berlin ( And together with colleagues from the trade magazine hotelbau, we will organise a one-day expert symposium about efficiency of space – How can creative hotel concepts be calculated? You will find more information about both events on page 1.

From now on, every Friday is hospitalityInside day again.


Yours, Maria Puetz-Willems, Editor-in-Chief
