ABOUT

THE LOBBY is a full-day event of talks and friendly discussions focusing on the ever-changing movements in the hotel business.

We created THE LOBBY to bring people together and present ideas and perpectives that can inspire and challenge the hotel business.

We like to think it’s the reason THE LOBBY is now the most important hotel event in the Nordic countries.

The next LOBBY event will take place in August 2021 in Copenhagen. Don’t forget to check our website regularly to see how and what we’re doing.

MEDIA PARTNER AND CO-ORGANIZER

“No joke: best hotel conference we’ve ever attended. Great speakers, informal, genuine vibe and lovely organizers.”

Hans Meyer, Founder of Zoku and Former Founder of CitizenM
