«Dear colleagues of the global hotel industry,

The first ReformBnB Conferences took place in 2018 in New York City. Since then, additional iterations have taken place in Barcelona, Buenos Aires, and, after a Covid-19-induced pause, Paris. We are now very happy to host the next iteration in Kyoto, Japan between the 30th of November and 2nd of December, 2022. We have pulled together an interesting and varied line-up of speakers and activities.

In addition to being the fifth iteration of the ReformBnB conference, this event will also be the first General Assembly of the ReformBnB organization. This new organization seeks to strengthen local hotel associations by connecting them across borders, with a focus on digital economy topics. For those who have not yet joined the organization, we will be happy to present it to you at the Conference.

We look forward to hosting you for the 5th ReformBnB Conference.»
