HotelloTOP Germany consists of 3 elements; HotelloTOP NRW, a networking drink taking place 4 times a year, HotelloTOP Berlin, a networking drink taking place 3 times a year and the HotelloTOP Year Kickoff in Dortmund. HotelloTOP Germany is a co-creation between HotelloTOP, the networking organisation for alumni of Hotel Management Schools, which has been established in The Netherlands for over 17 years now, and the renowned Hotel Management Schools WIHOGA Dortmund and Hotelfachschule Berlin.
Our mission is to provide a platform for people from the hospitality industry, in order to exchange thoughts, ideas, knowledge and experiences in an informal environment. This way, we can learn from one another and maintain focus on the developments, trends and challenges within our industry. Ultimately, we can collectively lift the branch to the next level.
Best of Events
Best of Events International
The Best of Events International exhibition in Dortmund focuses on the topics of business communication, live marketing, event services and conferences. The trade fair is one of the leading meeting places of the event industry, where over 400 exhibitors from the event industry are represented at the ‘Westfalenhallen Dortmund’ Exhibition Centre.
Over the past editions, we have seen a gradual growth in the number of participants, as well as an increase in the function level of the representatives present. For the sixth edition, we expect around 400 attendees.
Each year the kickoff event is linked to a theme, which is upcoming or current in our industry. Around this theme, the keynote speaker is recruited and an overall look and feel are created for the event. After the keynote, there is the possibility to enjoy the networking on the Best of Events International.
HotelloTOP NRW & HotelloTOP Berlin

HotelloTOP NRW takes place four times a year in a fancy location in Cologne or Düsseldorf. HotelloTOP Berlin, on the other hand, takes place three times a year at different inspiring locations of the capital city. The evening starts with a networking game followed by a keynote and a networking drink. Of course, there is plenty of time to meet new people, exchange thoughts and to do business while enjoying refreshing drinks and delicious bites.
