Conscious Hospitality

Conscious hospitality serves as a common thread for the hundred or so conference sessions scheduled for the 2022 edition of EquipHotel, giving pride of place to local and regional products and experiences, “slow tech”, “slow living”, energy conservation and soft mobility.

Internally, employer attractiveness, team spirit, inclusion and employee retention are the drivers behind hotel and restaurant businesses.

In the end, conscious hospitality is about creating “living spaces”, where people come to sleep, have lunch or dinner, but also to work, recharge their batteries, and immerse themselves in the local culture or environment.

5 themes to meet all your projects

EquipHotel will focus on the concept of “living spaces” through five “responsible” themes: sustainability, attractiveness, digital technologies, design and well-being.

1 / PLANNING FOR THE LONG TERM AND SUSTAINABILITY

Good and better for the best

Social responsibility and sustainable development mean looking differently at designing projects, managing worksites, organising teams and making establishments more dynamic by focusing on local sourcing, farm-to-table or short supply chains and upcycling.

2 / MAKING BUSINESSES MORE ATTRACTIVE

Recruiting and retaining staff: major challenges and feedback

Initial and continuing training, flexible working hours, incentive-based pay schemes, profit-sharing, recognition and other ways of rewarding know-how are all effective tools and arguments for attracting young talent and retaining experienced staff.

3 / KEEPING A HUMAN FACE ON DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES

Handling, rolling out and enjoying the benefits of digital tools

Digital technologies simplify the day-to-day operations of hotel and restaurant professionals. When it comes to customer/guest services, technology is the key to hybrid and coworking spaces. However going digital does not mean eliminating human relationships. It’s quite the opposite. The two go hand in hand.

4 / MAKING GREAT THINGS WITH GOOD PRACTICES

Layout, design and decorating in the age of “care”

In 2022, luxury equates with space, comfort, time, silence and nature. It’s a world where art and artisanship have their place, to express the beauty of craftsmanship, the subtlety of know-how, and the importance of passing on tradition, all while protecting the environment.

5 / FOCUSING ON SELF-CARE

Well-being at the heart of hospitality

Responding to a clientele looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city has turned into a new craze for spas, thalassotherapy, thermal baths, yoga retreats, and cocooning.
