Autumn is just around the corner, and with it comes the next TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR event in the British capital of London. We go inside the event to check out what’s in store.


The latest installment of the now-legendary TOPHOTELWORLDTOUR event will be held on September 25th 2018 in London’s iconic The Bloomsbury Hotel. This day-long networking and conference event promises to be one of the best World Tour events to date, with each one improving on the last. Over the course of the morning, afternoon and evening, delegates from all corners of the hospitality industry will come together to network, exchange ideas, attend keynote speeches and presentations, engage in a panel discussion and hear about three amazing hotel designs.

Networking and presentations

One of the most enjoyable portions of the World Tour event is the Change Table Session. These networking sessions are scattered throughout the day, with eight sessions in total allowing all of the delegates to meet each other, exchange information and make new friends and colleagues. Four keynote presentations will deal with topics such as Networking Tips, Hospitality Development Europe – Big Projects and Big Players, Reductive aesthetic in simplicity and trends in economy. the panel discussion is set to be one of the day’s highlights, with an engaging talk about “shared office spaces in hotels: are they working?” given by Heleri Rande, F&B strategist at Supper Magazine, Grant Powell, CEO at Central Working and Lissa Engle, founder and director of Berkeley Capital Group.

Creative Spark

The Creative Spark portion of the day takes three hotels that are standouts in the field of design, and pits them against each other for the top prize of the day. On September 25th, the three contenders will be presented in the morning, and the prize winner will be announced in the evening before the day wraps up. This is a great opportunity to get acquainted with the latest in cutting edge hotel design, and the Creative Spark portion of the day is also a chance to showcase some fascinating designs, no doubt acting as a well of inspiration and influence for all those in attendance.
