Felicia Ng

InterContinental Hotels Group

“I thought the conference was really, really interesting. It’s sort of speed dating but then with corporate contacts. You get to meet people from different sides of the industry. The different panellists had injected different opinions and mindsets so you see it from very diverse angles.”

Philippe van Houcke

Villeroy & Boch

“Off course it is a 1-2-1 group event, which is very interesting. Stakeholders are motivated to come here because its only 1 day. It does not take too much energy. I met very good contact and I am going home with at least 5-6 projects I can work on in future.”

Omer Isvan

Servotel

“At this event you get to meet people not accidently but in an organised way. As well I met people I don’t meet otherwise which leads into eye opening conversations. Typical hotels related conferences are super dominated by brands that try to promote their market or suppliers promoting their products. With this particular one, I feel it is more knowledge based – which I like.”

Tea Ross

Strategic Consulting

“It’s been really nice to be part of the event, I really appreciate meeting with the people and everything has been organised really well. I like the networking aspect, you really get to meet a lot of people that way. There were some really good speaking sessions, so I found it an excellent event. I am very happy to be here.”

Julia Dempster

Interior Motives

“Interior Designers, we are all very busy. We haven’t got enough hours in the day, we receive calls every week from suppliers wanted to meet us. This event is one day of our lives where we get to meet 15 suppliers, we meet other designers, we meet potential clients, so it’s a great networking experience. It’s a valuable day for me, where my time is so short.”

Cecilia Corda

Gensler

“I really think these types of events are helpful for the whole market to get to know each other. Here you meet new people and catch up with people we already know. As well get informed about trends in the industry and what’s in the pipeline.”

Stanley Ng

BusinessAsia Consulting

“The networking event at Sofitel City Centre on 28 June 2018 has been a fruitful event for myself and those I’m newly acquainted with that day. The efficient round-table meeting sessions facilitated considerably high impact introductions among delegates who come from different segments of the real estate and hospitality sector, opening up opportunities for subsequent conversations to explore interesting business deals. I’m sure the on-stage sharings by keynote speakers had also benefited participants with insights on key trends and high-level market developments within different jurisdictions across the globe. Overall, it was a enlightening experience even for seasoned professionals within the industry.”

Ahmet Sirkeci

MBT Tekstil

“It was a great event for us. We have meet with the right decision makers and learned more about the market. It was also nice to know new professionals that you already have common friends.”

George Kewin

PPA Architects

“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.”

Betsy Sweat

JANUS et Cie

“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.”

Sabu Picha

TeleAdapt

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.

Susannah Eustace

Kuehne + Nagel

“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.”

Nir Gilad

Nous Design

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

James Chappell

Horwath HTL

“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.”

Gordon Brown

TeleAdapt

“The three benefits of the TOPHOTELPROJECTS World Tour? 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.”

Supriya Ghosh

 RB Hospitality

“I enjoyed the networking, it’s a bit like speed-dating! I liked the architecture sector of it because we normally don’t hear presentations about projects from this angle of the hospitality market. And it’s good and great that it is all packed in a very timely manner – so that’s good.”

Vishnu Vethody

 Hotel Nippon

“The event was great! TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR did a great job. Honestly, I have not been to an event so well-organised in a while. Great venue, food was amazing and the drinks were good. Also, the fact that is a small group of 70 people works well. I actually met 65 people of them, which is great!”

Andrea Belfanti

 International Society of Hospitality Consultants

“I thought it was a great event, I joke sometimes I am a professional conference attendee and this was great! I loved the builds-in networking sessions, the content has been wonderful. I consider myself a networker by trade so to learn a few tips and tricks was good. I met some really interesting people at the different round tables. I would definitely come back to this event!”

Christian Ott-Sessay

 Horwath HTL

“This event really gives you the mood of the whole industry. You can see it from a supplier’s point of view, designers’ point of view, I am a consultant. You get the feeling and the mood of the industry. And how everybody is looking upon on it. Not by comparing figures and best projects yet delivered but how you really feel and what kind of dynamic you get. This is something you understand talking to a various number of architects for example. This is what I really enjoy a lot.”

Olivier Harnisch

 Emaar Hospitality

“We just had an extremely interesting panel discussion about Expo2020. There was a good vibe in the room, a lot of interesting questions and topics. So yes, I would recommend this event to everybody who is in the hotel business or who is associated with the hotel business.”

Hervé Houdré

The Intercontinental New York Barclay

“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!”

Cynthia Penner

BOX Interiors

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!

Hakan Ozkasikci

AMAN

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.

Pieter Bakker

Express Florida Realty Inc

“The entire day was a pleasant surprise filled with interesting presentations. Not to mention the great net-working opportunities. The day – although long – went by very fast, probably because it was orchestrated with typical German precision, honed to perfection with style and class by the Dutch influence of Kayley van der Velde. Seriously it was a great event and my best wishes for continued success.”

Neil Knowles

Elektra Lighting Design

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

Federico Toresi

Aedas Interiors 

“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.”

Carla Farre

FREIXANET WELLNESS 

“The event was terrific! I honestly feel very satisfied with all the organization and the setup of the event. It turned out to be very helpful, dynamic and enriching. Congratulate you and your colleagues for the amazing job you all did yesterday. The event was perfectly organized. The venue of the event couldn’t have been better and the people I met there was very interesting and highly knowledgeable in the field. I can’t help but strongly recommend this event for every hospitality professional! The event was unexpectedly helpful and very enriching!”

Elizabeth Bull

GA Design 

“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.”

Daniel Sato

TeleAdapt

“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.”

Karlyn Cerdena

Ara Design

“It has been wonderful! It’s nice to see old friends and it is also lovely to meet new people. I come to venues like this to initially endorse people.”

Sameer Grover

RB Capital Hotels

“I must congratulate the team of TOPHOTELPROJECTS! You are doing a great job in terms of bringing people from different sectors of hospitality together. The event is perfect in size, perfect timing and the 1-day works very well. The networking allows you to meet every person that is attending, so this is a great opportunity to start a conversation with someone and take it from there.”

Navneet Bali

Meininger Hotels

“There are loads of designers here, as well operators and owners. We are growing fast, we are currently building 15 hotels so if we meet people who have can do good design or supply an interesting product it saves time. I have met good friends today, it’s good to reconnect.”

Iftikhar Hamdani

Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman, Ramada Beach Hotel Ajman

“There is a high quality of audience and speakers. Especially the ‘Change Table Sessions’ that makes a difference which makes it more engaging with all attendees.”

John Podaras

Hotel Development Resources

“I was quite apprehensive at first, since I had to block a whole day, I felt that was quite intaking. But in a changing environment you have time to speak to people, change ideas and find out who they are. This is not often possible in big events. So yes, overall I have a very positive view on it.”

Bruno Marti

25Hours Hotel Company

“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.”

Anthony J. DiGuiseppe

DiGuiseppe Architect

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

Yvonne Yeo

Capella Hotel Group Asia

“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 TOPHOTELPROJECTS World Tour continued success for the rest of the tour, and look forward to attending the Asia event again next year.”

Rogerio Basso

Teranum Hotels

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

Phuc Hoai Truong Nguyen

MDT Australia

“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!”

Malcolm Berg

EoA

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

Heinrich Boehm

JOI-Design

“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 TOPHOTELPROJECTS World Tour 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.”

Can Faik

Hotel Spec & SPACE

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

Amy Wright

Mondiale Publishing

“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.”

Alessandro Tedesco

FEBC International

“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!”
