It all started back in 2018 with the thought of bringing new ideas, international knowledge and innovation to the region.
The first conference - titled New Baltic Hospitality Forum - shaping the future of the new Baltic regional hospitality market, launched its first event in 2019 in Tallinn, Estonia. With over 200 participants from 13 different countries NBHF was first hospitality event of its kind and scope in the Baltics.
Since the start we have organized multiple Forums both online and offline, additionally a 7-episode webinar series during the year of challenges in 2020.
To support women leadership in the sector Women in Baltic Hospitality community was born with different online and offline meetings-webinars taking place.
In 2022 to honor the hard-working people, teams, organizations in the sector New Baltic Hospitality team introduced Baltic Hospitality Awards. 18 nominations gave us winners per each Baltic country.
2022 winners for New Baltic Hospitality Awards of Resilient Leadership:

For future we are continuing to aspire for connecting, inspiring and learning within the industry from each other as well as from other industries to become more resilient, more adjusted, more fit and more in tact to the constant change.
As to 2023 we are excited to announce we are moving to Riga, Latvia. NBHF2023 will take place at H20 6 event space which allows us to expand the Forum and take a step to the future. We hope you join us!
