Karim Rashid, New York
Karim Rashid is one of the most colourful characters on the international design scene. His distinctive expressions of colour and shape define not only the brand presence of prizeotel, but also influence landmark developments as spectacular as the Nhow hotel in Berlin, the Temptation Resort in Cancún, the Semiramis Hotel in Athens, the Pegasus Hotel in Shah Alam, Malaysia, the Magic Hotel Bøhmergarten in Bergen, Norway, and recently, the Park Inn by Radisson Amsterdam City West. “Every business should be completely concerned with beauty – it is after all, a collective human need,” is his credo. His appearances are an inspiring event.

Park Hyatt Vienna, Upper West Berlin, Andaz Vienna at Belvedere. What’s next?
With SIGNA, René Benko has been establishing, and sustainably shaping, one of the largest real estate companies in Europe and one of the big German commercial enterprises since 2000. Today, SIGNA is the most important real estate developer in Vienna. The volume of new development in Europe amounts to about 7 bn Euro – that’s more than 2.7 bn Euro in the city of Vienna alone. With the Park Hyatt Vienna, SIGNA gave the metropolis at the river Danube a new shining highlight. There are five hotels being developed at the moment, including the Hyatt Andaz Vienna at the Belvedere.
Dietmar Ploberger has been working for SIGNA since 2011. As Senior Project Manager at the Real Estate Management GmbH, he is responsible for the development of numerous hotel projects.
Rosewood is coming to Europe
Currently the pop-up hotel “The Lovelace“ is still situated in the former Royal Branch Bank in the Kardinal-Faulhaber-Straße in Munich – but not for much longer. This interim tenant has to leave by 1 January 2019 because the owner, the Bayrische Hausbau, is preparing the historical building ensemble for the future hotel operator, the US luxury brand Rosewood, which wants to open in 2023. One year prior to that, the Rosewood Vienna will open its doors in the historical building of the former headquarters of the Erste Group Bank AG, in the heart of Vienna.
Michael Bonsor is the Managing Director of the Rosewood London Hotel. He will present the Rosewood projects in Vienna and Munich at the Hospitality Summit in Vienna.
Martina Maly-Gärtner is the Chief Operating Officer of Arabella Hospitality SE. She will present the Rosewood München hotel from the point of view of the builders and owners.

Stefan Hitzler (Mooons), Matthias Niemeyer (Adina), Guus Bakker (Frasers Hospitality) and Martin Bowen (IHG).
Stefan Hitzler is, as COO, responsible for the development of the brand Mooons as well as the Controlling Department of the operation. The idea to create this new brand started back in 2013; at the beginning of 2019 the first house will open in Vienna’s Wiedner Gürtel. The hotel concept was influenced by both market analysis and the founders’ collective experience over the years. The project was initiated by the Bridge Group and Moser Architects; the Austrian hotel group Arcotel will assume hotel management.
Matthias Niemeyer is the Head of Development of the Australian group TFE Hotels in Germany, and responsible for the expansion of Adina Apartment Hotels in Central Europe. Currently, the Adina Apartment Hotels have 11 locations in Europe, of which 9 houses are in Germany. Adina is planning to grow their brand with up to 50 hotels in Europe by 2025.
Guus Bakker oversees the group’s operations and development across Europe, Middle East and Africa including all the Fraser brands as well as Malmaison and Hotel du Vin. Guus launched Frasers UK operations in 2002 with the opening of three properties, growing it to its current size of 79 properties. Guus has 30 years’ experience in the hospitality industry.
Martin Bowen is the Head of Development DACH of the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG). Recently, the IHG launched a new up-scaling brand in Australia by the name of voco. The focus is mainly to convert existing individual hotels into houses bearing the new brand. Voco shall strengthen IHG’s offer in the upscale segment, worth US$ 40 billion. For now, voco will be launched in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa (EMEAA) and later also in North America, Central America and South America. More than 200 new hotel openings in attractive cities and popular holiday destinations are being planned for the next ten years.
Moreover, the QO Amsterdam, operated by IHG, was elected “Hotel of the Year 2018”!

with Nizar Rokbani (Schulz Hotels), Jens Sroka (Bretterbude, Beach Motel), Connor Ryterski (prizeotel).
Nizar Rokbani, together with Sascha Gechter and Oskar Kann, founded the Schulz Hotels. The boys from Berlin have been friends for more than 30 years and proven their competence as founders of the successful Meiniger Hotels. With the Schulz Hotel, a hotel with a novel concept opened at the East Side Gallery in Berlin: Schulz wants to bring people from all over the world and of every background together and let new, real social networks flourish. Personal exchange – both with the staff and among the guests – is a strong priority.
Jens U. Sroka is the man behind the hotel Bretterbude and the Beach Motels. In 2013, he started off with the first house of the brand Beach Motels, developed by himself, in St. Peter-Ording, and in 2016 a second one followed in Heiligenhafen. Right next to it, the hotel Bretterbude opened in August 2016, and was elected “hotel of the year” in October 2017. In August 2018, he placed all his hotels under the umbrella brand, Heimathafen Hotels.
Connor Llewellyn Ryterski is the Managing Director of the economy design brand prizeotel, which was founded in 2006 by the hotelier Marco Nussbaum and real estate economist, Dr Matthias Zimmermann. To develop his hotels, he formed an exclusive collaboration with the New Yorker star designer, Karim Rashid. The style of the designer can be seen clearly in all hotels in the group. In March 2016, the Radisson hotel group bought 49 per cent of Prizeotel.
