HICON, Italy's largest event dedicated to hospitality, technological innovation and new tourism trends, conceived and organized by The Data Appeal Company and Teamwork Hospitality, returns on Nov. 23. This year the appointment will be at the new NH Collection Milano CityLife hotel.
Milan, 3rd November 2022 - Twenty days left for the fifth edition of HICON, the Italian conference dedicated to innovation and the most advanced technologies in the tourism and hospitality industry, organised by The Data Appeal Company, an Almawave Group company, and Teamwork Hospitality, with the scientific direction of Giancarlo Carniani, Mirko Lalli, Silvia Moggia and Nicola Delvecchio.
The appointment is set for 23rd November in Milan, at the newly opened NH Collection Milano CityLife hotel located in the iconic Milanese district.
Once a church in the 20th century, now one of the most glamourous hotels in Milan, with a rooftop, a panoramic pool and convention rooms. An innovative atmosphere that perfectly matches with HICON’s style and that will also offer to attendees the opportunity to experience the Milanese hospitality.
HICON will be held in person for a maximum number of 300 participants registered.
Sustainability, inclusivity, technological innovations, and artificial intelligence will be at the core of this edition. Important and necessary tools to face an increasingly complex and volatile international scenario.
The main topic of this year's agenda is in fact 'Wave Surfing', as today's future resembles a big wave. The upswing has arrived just as tourism had left, without warning. What remains to operators, DMOs (Destination Management Organisations), and institutions is to 'board up' and get carried away by the wave, trying to surf it as best they can.
An event to celebrate the opportunity and ability to gather all the information, know-how, and forward-looking insights of the industry to renovate hotels, restaurants and tourism activities.
HICON will be developed with 4 thematic sessions, each of 90-minute: megatrends in tourism, destinations and transportation, technology and innovation, hospitality.
On the stage, national and international guests, industry experts, analysts, professionals and managers, digital innovators will investigate how the tourism industry has changed and how it is changing, interpreting the new trends and exploring which are the drivers and tools that can really make a difference.
