Leaders of Europe’s luxury hospitality industry gathered in Athens, Greece for two days of learning, networking, and fun!

Featured speakers included Peter Fulton (photo) – Group President of Europe, Middle East, Africa (EAME)/Southwest Asia and Executive Vice President at Hyatt Hotels Corporation – who presented “The Future of Food and Beverage in Luxury Hotels.” Hotels are sitting on empty restaurants, with guests flocking elsewhere to eat. The solution? Fulton advised hotels to let chefs be more creative as well as hire employees within the market they are trying to serve. For example, if your target is millennials, hotels should have more millennials on staff.
