‘Success can have different interpretations; it is a matter of personal preference’
The 4th edition of the HotelloTOP Belgium Year Event takes place on Tuesday March 28th 2017, during VENUEZ17 in Antwerp. This event is an initiative of HotelloTOP, the networking platform for alumni of international Hotel Management schools, in collaboration with well-respected Hotel Management schools: University College VIVES Bruges, AP University College Antwerp and Erasmus University College Brussels. The programme contains a visit to VENUEZ17, a walking lunch, congress en networking drink.
‘Destination Success 2.1’
We started a new year, keeping the turbulent year of 2016 in mind. This year will be one of growth and positivity. That is why HotelloTOP focuses on the concept ‘Destination Success 2.1’; we shifted from a world of materialism to a world of mentalism. Success is not a fixed fact anymore; it moves with the individual’s phase of life and the world around him or her. Success can also mean ‘significance to others’, ‘doing what you want to do’ and ‘utilising your talent for greater cause’. Today’s challenge is to find out what drives us, what is important and what generates the most value. HotelloTOP investigates how the industry can use this situation as an opportunity and how success can be defined. The congress will be in English for the first time, because of the international character of the industry.
Who can inspire hospitality professionals more than an industry icon? HotelloTOP believes in ‘likeminded people sharing the stage’ and that is why Alain Coumont will enter the stage. Alain is the founder of well-known concept Le Pain Quotidien. Currently he is active in the role of Chief Creative Officer and as driving force behind the company formula. Serge Haelterman, the Art Director of Creneau International, will share an inspiring Keynote presentation focusing on trends that are influencing the hospitality industry.
Besides that, Belgian hospitality professionals will share their stories through TOP Talks. Since the definition of success constantly changes, students of the reputable Hotel Management schools University College VIVES Bruges, AP University College Antwerp and Erasmus University College Brussels, will share a TOP Talk as well. In their TOP Talk they will elaborate on the expectations Millennials have of developments in the industry.
