Another exciting innovation this year will be the “project marketplace” area: the new nerve center of hotel & tourism forum Milan 2020, where development projects in their early stages will be presented throughout the day, while their promotors can connect with investors, operators and suppliers.
The final highlight of the event, in collaboration with the media partner Suite, will be the presentation of the finalists, followed by the award ceremony of the 12th edition of the Hospitality Design Award.
