On the 2nd of December 2015 key players in Poland’s hotel industry meet up at the “Profit Hotel” conference at the Sheraton Warsaw Hotel, it will be the 10th anniversary for the forum focused on the hotel business in Poland. Christie + Co, who also acts as a content partner to the event, will be represented by Adam Konieczny, Country Head Poland.

Given the impact on the marketplace we are delighted to have developed this affiliation with such a valuable partner to our core business.”
Konieczny will moderate a panel of industry leaders on the topic ‘Where is the hotel market headed – development perspectives, trends and guests”, discussing the development of the different market segments, promising investment decisions, the position of independent hotels in the market, new trends in hospitality, as well as how to attract guests and how guest expectations have changed.
