BECK ATTENDS IHIF & HOSTS ANNUAL DRINKS
We were delighted to return to Berlin for this year’s International Hospitality Investment Forum. The conference was well attended with a vast number of delegates representing a large number of countries from around the world. Nearly 200 industry leaders gave insightful and educational sessions on this year’s theme of People, Planet, Profit!
The hospitality landscape is constantly changing. The way business is conducted, staff expectations and the customer experience continue to evolve, along with sustainable and socially conscious business practices.
Many sessions focused on how businesses can adapt yet continue to thrive. The three key areas of this year’s theme, people, planet & profit were explored in depth. Every year the conference excels in highlighting the trends, innovations and latest opportunities that are emerging in the hospitality sphere.
On the final night of the conference, BECK hosted our annual drinks evening. We were pleased to welcome over 100 clients and valued contacts ranging from investors, hotel owners, operators, hotel valuers, architects, designers, project managers, cost consultants, service & structural Engineers.
After a hiatus since 2019, due to the global pandemic, it was fantastic to reconnect at the famous Newton Bar. The bar is named after legendary photographer Helmut Newton and references gentlemen’s clubs of the past, with its black leather armchairs and dark green marble counters. The relaxed setting gave the team and our industry friends the opportunity to catch up, debrief and share ideas.
In attendance from BECK were; Chris Galloway, Edward Kent, Kirsty Stainthorpe, Vanessa Budd, Dan Herron and Brian Hutchison. (Pictured below.)
Vanessa Budd says: “After a two-year absence it was amazing to return to the Newton Bar to host our exclusive annual late-night drinks and celebrate the final night of the conference. The entire BECK team are grateful to industry friends, old and new who joined us and made the evening such a memorable, fun, and fabulous event! As always, the Newton Bar looked after us so well, providing the perfect celebratory atmosphere.”
