The Young Leaders Summit at Phocuswright Europe

The Young Leaders Summit at Phocuswright Europe promotes executive management development among the region's rising stars in travel, tourism and hospitality. The summit showcases the important role young leadership plays in the future growth of the world's largest industry.

A select group of young leaders interacts with the industry's best and brightest. Participation exposes this group to today's travel luminaries as a critical step to becoming the future leaders who will drive strategy, innovation and growth.
Acceptance into this elite program provides access to interactive sessions with successful industry executives, group discussions and more before the conference even begins. During the conference, the group will gather at private lunches for discussion of the day’s sessions and an additional mentor segment. Create a network of people that understand where you are in your career – the struggles to overcome and the successes you’re striving for.
