2014 Hostelworld Conference
We are delighted to welcome you all to Dublin on February 24th and 25th for two days packed full of industry speakers, networking opportunities and trade events. The 2014 Hostelworld conference promises to be our most exciting yet.
With the merger of two of the largest industry players, (For any of you that don't know by now: Hostelworld & Hostelbookers), more and more Online Travel Agencies moving into the hostel sector, ever increasing bookings on mobile and how much choice customers now have, this year's conference aims to look at how the hostel industry has changed dramatically and what the future might bring.
The 2014 event will include some of the most relevant industry speakers from around the world as well as time to network and also to celebrate a busy year in hostelling.
- We will kick off on Sunday night Feb 23rd with a welcome drinks event (details to follow)
- Monday and Tuesday our conference will examine change and evolution in our industry with presentations from industry experts and panel discussions.
- As always we will ensure you get to meet your Hostelworld & Hostelbookers representatives.
- On the Monday night we are hosting a gala evening event with plenty of entertainment and a few surprises!
This year we are making some changes to the annual Hostelworld awards (the HOSCars). This year our results will be announced and published online, and all awards sent to the winning hostels in advance of the conference in January 2014.
As always there is no cost to attend the conference but if you or your registered other cannot attend and fail to notify us in advance we will have to charge a no show fee after the event.
We do look forward to seeing you in Dublin in February 2014.
