Dear Friends & Partners,
As you know, we at Design Hotels™ are consistently reevaluating where and how to rethink and engage with relevant topics and questions of today’s travel industry.
Therefore, we have introduced a new event format to our trade community in 2018: Design Hotels™ CO-LAB, Leisure Edition brought together select decision makers and influencers of the lifestyle-focused travel industry as well as Design Hotels™ Originals from 7 different countries – the owners, creative and inspiring souls behind our member hotels.
We feel it remains vital to connect and bond over shared experiences on eye-level amongst your peers, we would hereby like to personally invite you to experience the 2019 edition of this owner-level only event!
Benvenuti in Toscana!
2019 will take us to Italy - precisely to the well-beloved and popular hills of Tuscany. There, our Design Hotels™ Original, John Voigtmann will share his insight on this beautiful region he has made his home, reflecting on what it really means to be Tuscan – without recreating or faking it… Further, we will have the opportunity to experience and discover the meaning of laidback luxury, genuine hospitality and how an American guy can speak authentically of the dolce vita.
We invite you to reflect with us on the status quo of the travel industry when it comes to creating experiences. As a special guest, we will also have with us the author and futurist James Wallman who recently published his second book “Time and How to Spend it”, which talks about how experiences enrich one’s life – far more than any possession… Joining us for the second time, James will challenge our mindsets and enrich conversations.
Please see some information on timing and logistics, below.
Looking forward to seeing you in Tuscany for Co-LAB Leisure - the Design Hotels™ laboratory powered by the spirit of collaboration!
Your Design Hotels™ teamn
