Schlummer Atlas-Award: TOP50 Hoteliers Austria

For the first time, the Schlummer Atlas Award honors the 50 best hoteliers in Austria!

The award honors personalities who, with their hotels, create valuable public living rooms and thus places of communication, culture and togetherness. The award winners are role models who shape the calling cards of public life and are indispensable for the functioning of a society.

The award ceremony will take place as part of "Alles für den Gast" on Monday, November 13 at 5:00 p.m. in the Schlummer Atlas Lounge in Hall 3/5.

This is what the speakers said in 2021

The lack of plant-based dishes in the restaurant business is neither caused by the quality of the products nor by the rejection of the guests, but by the way it is communicated.

Felix Hnat
Chairman of the Veganen Gsellschaft Österreich

Made in Austria does not immediately mean that it is a top-quality product. Regionality must never take precedence over quality!

Nina Mohimi
Food & Beverage Consultant

The pride of being a host is disappearing more and more, but we in the industry are not how we are being presented to the public! We need to think about how we not only present our industry in a more attractive way, but also shape it.
