Introducing panelists and moderating Q&A’s throughout the day, luxury globetrotter Varun Sharma and Sophie Doran, Editor in Chief at session content partner Luxury Society, will chair five interactive discussions.

Turning towards the delivery of the luxury hospitality experience, citizen M Hotels and Kempinski will offer different views on a critical element and the key topic of session two – service, by discussing innovation, technology,and traditional approaches vs digital.

The conversation will then continue with session three, focusing on “people” and which skills are most important in today’s luxury hospitality team. Led by head of Lausanne Hospitality Consulting SA and the GM at one of the world’s leading eco-luxury destinations, Wogan Valley Resort & Spa, the discussion will reveal which qualities should be sought when assembling a successful team.

Over session four, leaders in luxury hospitality interior design, RPW Design, and multidisciplinary design studio, Serrano Brothers, will define how physical surroundings can contribute to an overall sense of luxury and wellbeing, as well as changing design aesthetics and functionality.

Summit, an exclusive think tank for luxury hospitality leaders, taking place in Lausanne,
Switzerland on 6th  June 2013. Organized with the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL), the
world’s leading hospitality management school, the one-day Luxury Hospitality 2013
conference will bring together senior representatives from around the world to discuss and
rethink the concept of luxury hospitality. 

Designed to offer an exclusive, niche forum, Luxury Hospitality 2013 will offer limited places
to a delegation of chief executives in the luxury hospitality industry including hotel owners
and directors, travel operators and agents, brand directors, developers and investors,
consultants, suppliers and heads of tourist boards.

The new event will feature five sessions led by high-profile and influential speakers,
including senior figures from St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, The Luxury Collection & W Hotels
Worldwide, Nobu Hospitality Group and Yoo Hotels. Alongside other experts, the panel will
share their vision for the future of luxury travel, divulge the latest research and forecasts for
the next decade and engage with participants to exchange insights.

the launch of the Luxury Hospitality Summit we have created an exclusive event, bringing
together carefully selected delegates who are tired of sales-driven events and want to learn
from and network with inspiring thought-leaders.” 
Michel Rochat, General Director of the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne said: “We are thrilled to
host such an inspiring event uniting stakeholders of the world of hospitality.” Ray F. Iunius,
Director of Business Development and Marketing added: “We strongly believe that it is part

shape the future of hospitality worldwide.”
