Berlin Lodging Outlook 2020

The Cornell Hotel Society (CHS) German Chapter held its first “Berlin Lodging Outlook” at the Hotel Bristol Berlin on August 28, 2020 with 50 participants and thus almost fully booked. All the participants at the Cornell event were thrilled in catching up with industry colleagues in person after a long time, despite the Covid-19 distance rules.

There were high-quality and informative lectures and an exciting panel discussion under the motto “What´s on the horizon?”.

Top-class speakers contributed to the success of this high-level event. Wolfgang Gattringer (Fairmas) and Dennis Spitra (STR) presented the current figures and specific analysis of the market. Markus Luthe, CEO from IHA Germany presented the current outlook including trends and future scenarios. The great cast of the panel discussion facilitated by Andreas Martin (hotelforum management GmbH) with Gregor Andréewitch (Waldorf Astoria), Christian Andresen ( The Mandala Hotel & DEHOGA Berlin), Walter C. Neumann (IHR/Seetelhotels) and Stefan Athmann (Hotel Bristol Berlin) contributed with a lively and informative debate to the success of this event.

Before the event we organized our general assembly with 12 active CHS members. (picture below).

CHS Germany Tours Hotel Provocateur

On Tuesday, April 25, 2017, the CHS German chapter met at the recently opened Hotel Provocateur. The group had a very nice tour of the property including a Vodka Drink in one of the guest rooms where General Manager Ronald Spicale demonstrated the “Provocateur mood and visual effects”.   It was very impressive and definitely very something unique.

After the tour, the Hotelies in attendance were privileged to gather in the Provocateur Bar. The bar was filled to capacity. After its first three weeks, the hotel’s bar has become a “hot spot”. The group enjoyed very nice cocktails and sensational finger food!

Everyone loved the evening and several Hotelies said they will return. CHS Berlin thanks Mr. Spicale for a wonderful evening.
