One year on from succeeding Geoffrey Gelardi as the managing director of The Lanesborough, Marco Novello has confirmed that he will be a speaker at Hotel Summit, which takes place at Heythrop Park, Oxfordshire on July 8 – 9.
Novello, who was a finalist at The Brit List 2018, will address the audience at The Summit with a 15 minute presentation on himself and where he is at one year into his role. He will then join editor Hamish Kilburn on stage for a live Q&A, which will focus the conversation on Marco’s plans for the future, how trends dictate what a hotel should offer and the importance of wellness – even in the centre of London where space is limited. The pair will also discuss how The Lanesborough blends technology into its interiors, the importance of a strong relationship between hotelier and interior designer and the challenges that come with being one of London’s most prestigious hotels.
Kilburn, who reviewed the hotel when it first reopened in 2015, said: “We have never had a speakership programme like it for Hotel Summit, and it is such an honour to announce that Marco will join us at this year’s event in its new home at Heythrop Park. Marco is a one-of-the-kind managing directors who, with his incredible team, manages to keep one of London’s most prestigious hotels current and relevant to the luxury market by effortlessly and sensitively reacting to key travel and luxury trends. Marco’s modern vision was exactly what The Lanesborough needed when he was appointed last year, and I look forward to discussing his and the hotel’s journey ahead.”
