Portugal’s Future Hoteliers Summit

We are delighted to present a new concept of competition coined as the Portuguese Young Hoteliers Summit organized by Terra International, Lda.


The summit’s aim is to create a platform where the future generation of Portugal’s hospitality industry can exchange ideas, participate in discussions with industry leaders, widen their horizons, gain insightful knowledge and access to the industry they will be joining.


The Summit will be held annually over 2 days at the Monte da Quinta Resort, in Quinta do Lago. The delegates will be nominated students from the top universities in Portugal inscribed in a hospitality degree. The students will be hosted at the Resort and will engage in a weekend filled with an industry challenge, keynote speakers, panels and workshops.


The winners of the hospitality challenge will then have the opportunity to participate in next year Young Hoteliers Summit at the Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne in Switzerland, which will be sure to be a once in a life-time opportunity.
