The Global Summit is held over three days at the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne annually. The delegates are students, nominated from top hospitality management schools spanning the globe. Through a Creativity Challenge, Keynote speakers, Panels, Focus Groups, Workshops and Recruitment, YHS seeks to provide a unique and profitable setting for all stakeholders, and contribute to shaping the employment outlook in the hospitality industry. The Summit is organized and ran by students of the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne.


In 2011, ex-delegates from the Beijing Institute of hospitality were inspired to form their own Hoteliers organization, with the aim of organizing an Asian Edition of the Summit. Since 2011, the Asia Summit has grown to be a successful parallel event, reuniting hospitality schools in the region, equally committed to improving professional opportunities as the Global Edition.


One event. Three days.
