Pursuing excellence

Vision & Mission

EHMA was established in Rome in 1974. It is a non-profit association of Hotel Managers operating first class and luxury hotels across Europe. The founding members firmly believed that service is the principle tenet of quality hospitality. Personal service is the key stability, and without it luxury hotels cannot survive.

EHMA currently gathers nearly 400 members in 23 European countries.

EHMA is an association of people, not hotels. To become a member the candidate needs at least ten years of industry experience and must have the position of General Manager of a deluxe or first-class hotel of international repute in Europe.

Be the preferred Association of Hotel Managers, representing the most prestigious and unique hotels in Europe.

Foster friendship and amical spirit among its members.
Support an inclusive and stimulating networking environment, sharing experiences, insights and support, to effectively communicate within the hotel industry, with integrity, loyalty and trust.
Facilitate ongoing education, with the support of leading international hotel schools.

The 2022 has been a fantastic year for our members because we had so many general managers who received personal accolade like awards, recognition and with the great help of Gianni Buonsante from Ingenia Direct who produced this fantastic and carefully hand crafted video that belongs to all members, we wanted to shout out how we are, what we do and how great our family is.
