Hospitality Summit


Grand Cayman

September 9-11th 2018

 

Bonding is stronger than "meeting".

Carpathia has created a very unique way to "Bond" top decision makers and elite suppliers. Make no mistake... this is not a Trade Show with thousands... or even a so called "intimate summit" with hundreds. The first way to truly bond people is to change the focus from event numbers and profits to quality people in smaller, "bondable" groups. We are proud to stage this elite Invitation-Only luxury event at the newly renovated Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort and Spa in the British West Indies.

Day Two

Wake up in Grand Cayman. (Not bad), The day starts with a networking Breakfast.  It's time to not break, but rather "shatter" the ice and start bonding with each other.  After all… the reception, dinner, and networking theme last night was amazing, fun, and relationship building as well.  It's time to now get down to business as you head over to the One-on-One tables.  VIP Buyers (A&D firms, Hotel Management Organizations, Developers etc..) with incredible hospitality industry experience and connections will spend 20 min at each matched table, learning and discussing potential partnerships with the proven, vetted, top-of-class Suppliers. (You pick the meetings... the Suppliers and Buyers are matched up prior to the event). The drum booms…  the next Buyer sits down. One-by-one, hospitality business partnerships start to form. You will soon be familiar with our coined term "Adventure Networking".  Now get changed and get ready for a great afternoon.  You will chose an activity that is worthy of a check mark on your bucket-list, a 63' Catamaran Yacht Sailing excursion, Semi-Submarine exploration of the reef and a legendary shipwreck, Swimming with the Stingrays at the famed Stingray city, Snorkeling with and actually holding Sea turtles, A Tour of Cayman's only brewery, Walking the nature trails of Cayman's wild side.  This afternoon is not only a memorable and fun adventure, but you will be experiencing it along side potential new "whale" business partners. This is how high-level relationship bonding works.

 

 

Who knows… maybe this day will change the rest of your life?  Think of it as a cross between TV's "Survivor" and "The Bachelor" mixed with a little business speed dating. You get the idea!

Now that personal relationships are built...The night is upon us… so grab a shower and head  down to the beach.

The evening is filled with a cocktail event view side, followed by an amazing Luau dinner and beach bonfire.  One problem with Tradeshows, networking of the past, and LinkedIn is the absence of personal relationships. Carpathia overcomes this.  These are not just business people. Now they are friends, matched with you, and ready to make deals for everyone's benefit. 

Day Three

Networking Breakfast, then Panel Discussion: "Industry Best Practices" moderated by Ellen Fisher (Dean of New York School of Interior Design) with panelists Danielle Allen - VP Design, Luxury Brands at Marriott, Sandra Cardona - VP, Development & Capital Planning at HERSHA, and Thom Forsyth - Senior Interior Designer at Rockwell.

Next on the agenda comes the infamous moderated Round Table industry discussions. Share and learn hospitality design trends and directions for the future. 

Now, it's time to grab a resort prepared box lunch and head to the pool, the beach... or if you must, the airport. Keep in mind Carpathia will provide our corporate rate to you if you would like to extend your stay in the beautiful Grand Cayman!

vip buyers

Looking for partnerships. 

The Buyers mean business. They have come to Carpathia to find solid "go-to" supplier partnerships.  High level hotel design executives, hotel management company execs and owners. Architectural, design and development companies.  Many are currently building. These Buyers are  fast-paced, and looking for partners that they truly trust and can fulfill their needs quickly. They are eager to realize quick ROI. Enjoy panel discussions you can actually participate in with buyers such as Hersha, Rockwell and head VP of Design for Marriott Hotels. 

 

 VIP suppliers

Vetted to handle volume.

Carpathia recruits the best. Not the rest. Flashing Tradeshow badges and business card wheels are absent here.  These Suppliers are sharp. Proven in the hospitality industry to be able to handle sizable volume deals, they have years of success behind their often unique products. They are anxious to form lasting relationships resulting in long-term deals that benefit hoteliers and their guests around the world.  Dyson Inc, Moen Faucets, Hunter Fan Co., Cambria, Phillips Lighting (Signa) and others that lead in their industries... are headed to Cayman, sponsoring this unique bucket-list event! 

your time

It's valuable. We respect that. 

We respect your time. After all, that is exactly why Carpathia was founded. We were tired of literally spending millions of our dollars on lead development, advertising, marketing, and attending conferences to organically grow. We wasted a lot of time crunching the numbers with average results and less than average relationships. The Carpathia summit model delivers a much more efficient use of your time and marketing budget.  Perhaps you land the deal of a lifetime or find that one game changing piece of design advice from the Dean of the nation's top rated design school (NY School of Design). Join us in Cayman,  you will likely never go to market the same again.
