We are almost in one of the busiest and, in our opinion, one of the coziest periods of the year for the hospitality industry. And we can finally welcome guests for Christmas again!

Most hotels and restaurants are already busy thinking about the decorations, we have even seen the most beautiful Christmas hotel of the Netherlands on Instagram, ready to receive their guests! We have also seen a lot of newsletters with delicious menus and it’s great to notice that ordering Christmas dinners to go remains possible at many restaurants in addition to reserving a table! Last year we created a digital Christmas inspiration booklet with the biggest trend of that year; the ‘Christmas drive thru’. Of course we had to create another list this year, including the recurring ‘tree lighting’ ceremony, looking on Pinterest for your decorations, Christmas atmosphere in your hotel room, an ‘Electric Bingo’ in Christmas atmosphere and much more Christmas inspiration.

Reading time: 4 minutes.

It’s already back to normal, but isn’t it great that after two tough years for the hospitality industry, the Horecava will take place at the RAI Amsterdam as before?

From 9 to 12 January, professionals from the hospitality industry will once again gather at the fair. Since January 2020, the Netherlands’ largest hospitality fair has not taken place in physical form. This makes the return of Horecava extra festive. The upcoming edition will focus on three themes: sustainability, personnel and innovation. The organization has not been idle in recent years. Because in addition to the exhibition days, the dynamic hospitality industry needs a place where they can meet like-minded people 365 days a year. Horecava has developed a successful online platform where supply and demand come together and current news is shared. Both hospitality companies and interest groups now know how to find each other there.
