Free Hotel Webinars: October marks the Second Round of Hotelier Academy's Webinars for 2020


After the huge success of the first round of Hotel Webinars, that hosted more than 5,700 participants and gathered 200,000 video views on social media platforms, Hotelier Academy’s Free Hotel Webinars return this October with brand-new educational topics, covering the new Trends in F&B, Housekeeping, and Hotel Sales for 2021, as well as basic Educational topics related to Hotel Operation


The second round of Hotelier Academy’s Free Hotel Webinars officially starts on October 2020, by presenting a series of new live webinars that aim to enhance the know-how of employees in the Hotel Industry. For this purpose, Hotelier Academy will provide a free educational and training platform in collaboration with leading professionals in the hospitality sector. The current updates concerning COVID-19 have led to a significantly restructured business and functional hotel environment. Therefore, Hotelier Academy has specified a series of Webinars that will train Hoteliers in new techniques, strengthen their bases in classic hotel procedures, and present real case studies of successful practices.

Further developing the Webinar model that was presented in April, during the first round, the selected topics are now divided into three different sections: Hotel Trends, Hotel Courses, and Case Studies. Each category adopts the topic and content of each Webinar according to the audience’s preferences and the hotel industry’s updates. Experienced professionals from all the divisions of the hospitality sector have been selected as instructors. The Live Webinars will have a highly interactive character and the attendees will receive a special certificate of attendance after completing the relevant Tests and Assignments that will be set by each instructor. Indicative topics include:
