SENTINEL

Cluster Network for Hospitality Sustainable Development and Internationalization

Summary

SENTINEL will facilitate the access to emerging markets to SMEs suppliers of products and services for hotels.

This is an European Project (COSME Go International Programme) which is developed by a consortium of Spanish, Austrian and Italian clusters of companies providing products and solutions for the entire value chain of the contract-hospitality sector: construction, equipment and hotel maintenance services.

The first step of the project is the emerging markets identification. Companies that operate in the contract-hospitality channel will find business opportunities at the mid-term in those identified markets. Subsequently, a validation will be carried out through market studies and market research visits and, next, an internationalization plan will be established, which will include a training plan for the SME companies of the participating clusters.

Applicable results for companies

  • Identification of emerging markets in contract-hospitality
  • Market studies
