On learning that she had won the award, Eva said: “My enthusiasm for the hospitality industry is what drives me to continue learning and progress. My role requires delicate co-ordination of development, legal and commercial angles in order to achieve successful transactions and this continues to provide me with exciting challenges on a daily basis. I am very humbled and also hugely excited to receive this award and look forward to meeting my colleagues across the industry at IHIF next month”.

“We couldn't be more pleased to recognise Eva for her career accomplishments and strategic growth of MEININGER Hotels. As a young professional who is as dedicated to the hospitality industry as we are, we look forward to seeing the impact Eva has on the industry for many years to come. Our partnership with IHIF on the Young Leader Award started 9 years ago, to continue to be part of IHIF at the 20th celebration is also quite an honour for us. We contribute the success of the Young Leader Award program to our mutual mission of advancing the hospitality industry, and are humbled by the incredible nominations of young leaders we receive each year and by our partners and colleagues who help make this possible,” said Andrea Belfanti, Executive Director of ISHC.
