On July 30, Grup Idea attended the Re Think Hotel conference in Valencia, this year focused on solving unknowns about what hotels will be like in 2030. The event had safety, sustainability and energy efficiency in design and architecture in hotels as the central topics. Re Think Hotel is an event organized by the Habitat Futura group.
During the conference, two round tables have been held with assistants from the hotel and business world, trend specialists, suppliers as well as more technical profiles. Assistants have discussed the advantages of applying sustainability criteria in the rehabilitation and management of hotels with higher goals. Some of the measures have been successfully implemented in other fields, ranging from taking advantage of running shower water, improving air conditioning installations, to sustainability applied in the workplace and close customer relations. Applying these measures will also lead to an improvement in energy efficiency and the generation of greater tourist attraction.
It has also been emphasized, the need, not only to build more sustainable and safe spaces, but also that these aspects are perceivable by the client. Ultimately, customers will set the tone for what hotels will look like in 2030, and sustainability and safety must be at the center of their experience.
Finally, the organization has presented the new edition of the Re Think Hotel competition, which aims to recognize the 10 best hotel sustainability and rehabilitation projects in Spain and which meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
