My participation at the TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR in New York on the behalf of PPA Architects provided an introduction to  number of individuals relevant to finding, collaborating on, and being given resource contacts for new work.  It was very rewarding to present one of our best projects, the  Marriott Courtyard World Trade Center.  Thank you for the opportunity.

George Kewin

Principal, PPA Architects

The TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR was a terrific and worthwhile opportunity to genuinely and personally connect with a very interesting mix of qualified suppliers, peers, and hoteliers in a well-orchestrated yet relaxed day.  Kudos to the TOPHOTELPROJECTS team!

Cynthia Penner

Owner, BOX Interior Design

Thank you so much on behalf of Miguel, Valeria and HBA! You have been such a great help and partner! We truly value all the work you put into this and it was an excellent event that was really worthwhile.

Shelly Levin

Director of Public Relations, HBA

Meet new people in the region, catching up with people you already know, and learn about topics that are actual in the region, like the panel discussion on sustainability.  All presentations informed me about the industry in Dubai, which is very good.

I would definitely recommend the event.

Amy Wright

Brand Director, Sleeper

The networking part, being on different tables, has been very good for me. I initially thought I would stay with the same group moving around, but you actually meet everybody, which is really good! Also, the speakers are interesting, learning about the industry, especially the design concepts and the panel was very interesting.

Susannah Eustace

Business Development Manager Hotel Logistics, Kuehne and Nagel

It’s concentrated, it has very good attendants in terms of the various levels of people in the industry. I could meet hoteliers, suppliers, and other design practises.

Federico Toresi

Senior Director, Interior Design - Luxury Brands Europe, AccorHotels

Thank you very much Kayley, the event was great! We could meet several interesting and key professionals in the hospitality market and we now plan to keep networking with them exchanging ideas and to generate future new business.

Daniel Sato

Business Development, TeleAdapt

I had an incredible time and really enjoyed the intimate atmosphere and the quality attendees. Thank you for putting on a very successful event.

Malcolm Berg

Pricical & Owner, EoA

Kayley – thank you again for the kind invitation. The event was great, and so was the venue. We will be in touch.

Rogerio Basso

Principal Investment Officer, IDB Invest

I was very impressed by the eclectic  attendance of architects, designers, vendors and hoteliers. I find the format to be extremely interactive with short presentations alternating with roundtables and panels. 

In short: Superb professional networking opportunity!

Hervé Houdré

General Manager, The InterContinental New York Barclay

The Conference was not only informative but highly constructive conversations, with at least four  high quality prospects as a result of these networking sessions!

Anthony J. DiGuiseppe

Owner, DiGuiseppe Architect

Overall I have to say the event is very well ‘engineered’.

The audience is a very selected bunch of professionals in a small, exclusive group. You cannot come across with the attendees in your everyday life, which is wonderful. This make the networking sessions very efficient.

With this particular size of the group, people have time to reflect of what they have heard and can exchange experiences. It is not the usual speed dating event of changing cards. It is more of an interaction that is provoked, in conjunction with what is being presented. Apart from that the locations are very well selected and it is very concentrated.

Hakan Ozkasikci

Group Corporate Director of Design, AMAN

At the beginning I thought, only the buyer-supplier meetings are valuable but now I can absolutely agree with the team of the TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR that all meetings are really of high value as well personally and commercially. 

The exclusive circle of delegates as well as the familiar atmosphere of the group is really a stunning innovation in the event area.

Sabu Picha

Vice President Hospitality Solutions, TeleAdapt

In comparison to other events, you meet a lot more people during the ‘Change the Tables’ sessions. The quality of the delegates is very high rated! For JOI-Design it is very interesting to follow up all the TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR events. I would certainly recommend to do this event again. The local speakers presented valuable information which you normally can’t find on internet, so I definitely feel educated about the Middle Eastern hotel industry today.

Heinrich Boehm

Senior Designer & Associate, JOI-Design

I like the concept, it’s forces you to go around, meet and talk to other people. It’s a good crowd, a good mix of people and I really enjoy the event.

James Chappell

Global Business Director, Horwath HTL

Coming away with a number of new business cards is the biggest benefit for me. This will lead into new meetings, new business.

Can Faik

Editor Dental & Interior Design Portfolios, Purple Media Solutions

The event has been fantastic! The best benefit is the 1-on-1’s with hoteliers, especially for myself as an interior designer, I don’t always have that contact with them. The people coming here are looking for new clients, so that’s fantastic.

Elizabeth Bull

Project Manager, G.A Design

It was a pleasure to host the TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR in Zurich and of course to participate in the creative spark competition. The conference has the ideal format and size for extensive networking. It is a rare platform where Operators, Designers and Developers can informally exchange and I have left with many new contacts and some interesting leads.

Bruno Marti

Chief Brand Officer, 25hours Hotel Company

Exceeded my expectation with the calibre of the group, captured all the key influencers for the market, most at a senior level and having regional or global responsibility.

Betsy Sweat

Vice President, Asia Pacific, JANUS et Cie

Big thanks to Kayley and the team for this fantastic networking event! It was very last minute for me, but so happy I could join. Thanks to the effective set up (change table sessions) I have been able to make lots of interesting contacts and was able to arrange meetings to fill the rest of the week I was staying in Singapore. The various presentations given are a great source of business insights. All in all, a great concept to get connected in the hotel industry! 

Phuc Hoai Truong Nguyen

Managing Director, MDT Australia

The event was a great platform to network with a select group of professionals from different backgrounds of the hospitality industry. It was perhaps one of the few events, where one will be able to effectively meet and speak to all participants through the “Change Table” concept, thus enhancing the quality of the event.

The content of the presentations and panel discussions were relevant to all participants, and gave great insights to the what’s happening in the industry. Prior to the event, the organizing team, especially Kayley, was approachable and quick to respond to any queries. Overall an organized, engaging and fantastic conference! We wish TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR continued success for the rest of the tour, and look forward to attending the Asia event again next year.

Yvonne Yeo

Director of Expansion and Operations, The Great Room Offices

The three benefits of the TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR? Networking, networking, networking.

Through the organisation, you meet multiple new people in a very informal but well-organised setting. As Headline Sponsor I have been in London and now in Dubai and I will join Singapore, New York and Berlin as well. I absolutely recommend this event to suppliers, as well to hotelier.

The information given today was very interesting and definitely added value into the knowledge I had on the UAE Market. The local investors, hoteliers and consultants that presented today informed me in a very short and sharp way.

Gordon Brown

Owner & Founder, TeleAdapt

The event is very good organised. The small group of people is a good mix of everything with investors, owners, consultants etc. You meet the right people here, delegates from different angles of the industry. The program is really back-to-back, there is no waste of time. I would definitely recommend this event!

Alessandro Tedesco

COO, FEBC International

Overall great and met some really good people, and renewed contacts with others. I’d come again and I’d recommend to others.

Neil Knowles

Director, Elektra Lighting Design

Attending this event is fantastic, it’s a new format where you sit close to people, where you can exchange ideas.
