Hotelivate will host the 9th Edition of its Hotel Operations Summit – India (HOSI) at the Indian School of Hospitality, Gurgaon on 09th September 2022. 

Riding on the back of the previous edition, this year too will, the conference will see a hybrid format, allowing many more professionals to join in virtually and be a part of the event.  With the most challenging times of the recent years behind us, the hospitality fraternity has been focused on bouncing back, with all its business decisions revolving around hotel operational teams which have gone through turmoil in terms of changing trends, government guidelines, manpower shortages and so much more. The conference is once again returning to the Indian School of Hospitality, one of the country's leading hospitality management institutes. Home to the first École Ducasse campus in India, ISH offers international education in culinary arts, and their hospitality management programs are offered in alliance with the globally renowned school Les Roches. 

HOSI is the only dedicated forum for hotel professionals in the region and has always aimed to empower hospitality leaders through enabling discussions on management and operations-related issues, the rapidly evolving marketplace, latest industry trends, benchmarking, and best practices. HOSI aims at furthering the exchange of ideas in the industry. A collection of keynote addresses, interviews and panel discussions will tell the story of operational challenges and opportunities as well as the ongoing journey of hospitality towards better days. 

The conference will be aimed at providing a much-needed boost to one of the worst-affected industries in the world with some of its most prominent thought-leaders and trend-setters uniting under one roof, discussing operational excellence.
