With 17 years of history, Hotelga is an event organized by the Hotel and Gastronomy Business Federation of Argentina (FEHGRA) and the Association of Tourism Hotels of Argentina (AHT). Messe Frankfurt Argentina joined the organizing committee in 2023 to propose a renewed Hotelga, driven by a rebranding process that includes the relaunch of the brand image.
The new image aligns with the redesign and concept of an event deeply rooted in innovation, training, and the promotion of contacts to foster new business agreements, and with sustainability as a key principle that defines new business models throughout the entire value chain of the HORECA sector.
Enhancing the customer experience is the primary goal of the new Hotelga: times change, and so do the audience's evolving needs and expectations. Transformation is crucial in maintaining leadership and promoting sustainable development in the sector.
Sustainability as a Strategic Value
Sustainable development entails the responsible use of current resources without compromising those of future generations. The contemporary commitment to sustainability is a pivotal factor that reshapes the business landscape across the entire value chain. It encompasses all human processes—social, educational, cultural, economic, and more—that, in an environment of fairness and global perspective, seek the development and equitable well-being of individuals while safeguarding the environment.
AHT and FEHGRA advocate for these values throughout the Horeca sector. Driven by their vision of sustainable business practices, in 2023 they celebrated a decade of championing the "Greener Hotels" initiative. This competition promotes eco-innovation and environmental management as an opportunity for improvement in the hospitality industry, and a differentiating factor in the tourism market.
In alignment with this commitment, both associations have welcomed Messe Frankfurt into Hotelga's organization.
Messe Frankfurt has made sustainability a guiding principle ingrained in its corporate culture by signing the Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge, demonstrating its commitment to driving sustainable development in the international events sector. A member of the UN Global Compact since 2010, Messe Frankfurt stands as the first German trade-fair company to subscribe to the 10 principles of the United Nations Global Compact and is actively working to ensure their adherence.
