HotelloTOP the NetherlandsHotel

hotellotop networking organisation
HotelloTOP is the networking organisation for Hotello’s; students and graduates of the Dutch Hotel Management Schools.

Throughout the year, we organize multiple networking events and we keep approximately 8.000 Hotello’s and partners up to date about industry developments and trends. In 17 years’ time, the HotelloTOP Year Event has become a household name as the place where Hotello’s annually meet fellows, expand their professional network and catch up with old friends. Besides that, the networking organisation offers more events and platforms where likeminded Hotello´s come together!

With its foundation in 2004, HotelloTOP The Netherlands is the oldest and most advanced of the HotelloTOP platforms. With the support of over 135 partner companies, we achieve to connect 2.000 visitors at the HotelloTOP Year Event each year. Via our social media channels, alumni have the opportunity to connect and exchange online as well, which stimulates business opportunities. To further do so, HotelloTOP has developed a variety of initiatives;

CEO Powerbreakfast

During the annual (by invitation only) CEO Powerbreakfast, HotelloTOP brings CEOs from the Dutch hotel industry together to toast on the new year. Besides an inspiring keynote speaker and an elaboration on the HotelloTOP annual theme, plenty of time is spent discussing developments in the industry, and the participating hotels and hotel chains.

Besides that, these interactive meetings offer a source of information and inspiration on industry trends and developments.
