The Intrust Super 80 Twenty Hotel Conference 2018

The inaugural Intrust Super 80 TWENTY Hotel Conference was held at the Stamford Plaza in Brisbane. It was attended by close to 200 delegates from different sections of the hotel industry in the same forum for a day of learning and networking.

41% of attendees were hoteliers operating at owners, executive or management levels. The event was also attended by a significant number of development and consulting professionals acting for owners or their hotel clients.

Delegates were able to listen to listen to industry insights from accommodation experts and hear about evolving market conditions, which could help them develop strategies that work to drive revenue and manage shareholders’ interests.
