Date PublishedMar 08, 2017

M3 Accounting + Analytics, the industry leader in hospitality accounting and analytics software, makes the trek across the pond this week to attend the 20th International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF) in Berlin, Germany. 2017 marks the third consecutive year that M3 will be participating at IHIF.

M3’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Scott Watson, will be attending and getting a feel for international opportunities as M3 prepares for a global launch.

“Our purpose is to network with hotel owners, managers, operators, investors and asset managers,” Watson said. “Our goal is to gather information on how M3 technology can drive financial performance, reduce overheads and create operational efficiencies abroad, as we have done for nearly 5,000 customer properties here in the US. We are positioning for a global launch in Q1 2018 and this conference brings together the biggest and best from the industry from around the globe. While M3’s expansion strategy is to begin in Canada and the UK, we will follow the demand, wherever it leads.”

At IHIF, Watson will host pre-scheduled meetings, participate in networking eventsand attend general and targeted sessions to gather global insight and connect with people and firms that can facilitate and accelerate M3’s global launch.

“We are committed to regular attendance at IHIF, as it has a global audience similar to the domestic audience we see at the America’s Investment Summit (ALIS) and The Lodging Conference,” Watson continued.

IHIF attracts a gathering of hoteliers and among them nearly every major hotel chain CEO, influential global tourism ministers and the largest group of investors and hotel owners. IHIF focuses on delivering opportunities to anyone who currently operates within the hotel and tourism industry or who wants to do business in the hotel sector. The conference is full of networking opportunities, evening receptions, an exhibition and educational program.
