The IV Brazilian Forum of Independent Hotels 2020 will be 100% online!

The brainchild of Roberto Bertino, founder and president of the Nobile Group with years of experience in independent hospitality, the Brazilian Forum of Independent Hotels (FBHI) is now in its fourth year.

Since its creation, the FBHI has aimed to improve and develop this sector through debates and discussions focused on presenting alternatives and solutions to hoteliers while creating and maintaining competitive advantages and increasing the profitability and financial growth of hotels.

In line with Equipotel's purpose of boosting hospitality to a new level, the FBHI  has had the brand's support since its first edition. So much so that from the second edition onwards, the FBHI and the event itself roll out simultaneously.

The event has been in partnership with Equipotel ever since its inception and has taken place inside the fair since the second edition. In 2020, however, due to the unusual we are all living through, the event will delivered 100% online on September 28 by Equipotel Conexões as a new series with exclusive content that aims to connect people, knowledge and experiences.

The 4th Brazilian Forum of Independent Hotels will be guided primarily by the worldwide technological evolution, as well as disruptive solutions for independent hospitality.

Considered as essential for those active in the sector, this year’s forum will address the following themes:

•       A look to recent events and the impact of Covid-19 and to the future of hospitality

•       How to make the hospitality business profitable in the face of the “new normal”?

During the 4th Forum, donations will be given to the Ronald McDonald Institute, which promotes health and quality of life of children and adolescents with cancer in Brazil.

Through these donations it will be possible to collaboratively purchase PPE (personal protective equipment) such as surgical masks and respiratory protection to help in the hospitals where it operates. And, simultaneously, it will offer materials for sanitization (such as alcohol gel hand sanitizers) and basic food baskets for families supported by the institution.
