Crossroads Maldives will be the venue for the annual General Manager’s Forum organised by Hotelier Maldives; the country’s only dedicated audited publication for hospitality professionals, developers, and hotel operators. 

The next GM Forum, scheduled for 2nd April 2020, will be the fifth in the series that started in 2016 at Hulhule Island Hotel (HIH). Since then the Forum has also been hosted at Kurumba Maldives and Bandos Maldives.

The day-long Forum and networking event for GMs, hoteliers and hotel suppliers highlight pertinent issues affecting the hospitality industry with a special focus on the Maldives region. The event also attracts speakers from international hospitality brands, internationally based service providers such as STR and dNATA and IdEAS, in addition to principals from hotel suppliers and service providers. The keynotes and panel discussions are complemented by product demonstrations and product launches by suppliers. In addition, suppliers also get to display their brands on the sidelines of the Forum and networking event. 

Previous speakers in the Hotelier Maldives GM Forum have included Maldives Association of Tourism Industry and Universal Resorts Chairman, Mr MU Maniku, Chairman of Crown and Champa Resorts Mr Hussain Afeef Champa, Director at Cyprea Group, Mr Ahmed Saleem Bandhu as well as leading C Suite corporate hoteliers representing the hotel chains currently operating properties in the Maldives including Hilton and Marriot. 

The main themes for GM Forum 2020 are sustainability and Human Capital. Keynotes and panels will be curated to reflect this and will be announced in the coming weeks. 

While the GM Forum is primarily by invitation only, a small number of seats are reserved for suppliers and other stakeholders wishing to attend. These seats are given on a first-come-first-served basis.
