    "What a pity that it's not Friday again while dropping these lines and I can dive into my Friday morning readings with short teasers and crisp – sometimes provocative –headlines. Apart from the always very subject-related topics, I especially like the topicality and the 'acting and researching' at the pulse of time! You do not only provide good journalism, but you also know how to question topics in a way that the reading of things you would normally leave past makes them rather interesting.
    HospitalityInside is not a lecturing educational tool but provides the inclined reader with the industry's current mood, no matter whether crisis or champagne atmosphere, week after week. They are not afraid of unpleasant topics and, from time to time, they get interesting people to speak in interesting 1:1 conversations/interviews. All I can say is: Keep up the good work!"
