The European Hotel Forum (EHF) is founded as a pan-European forum to research hospitality-related issues and take action on them as appropriate through legislative, policy, media and hotel industry educational venues. The purpose of the forum is to bring together professionals in the hotel industry in Europe to conduct and convey pertinent and timely research and analysis.

European Hotel Forum Members represent the diversity of the hotel industry in Europe, both in terms of geographical locations and of the variety of professionals involved including independent hotel groups, hotel chains, hotel owners and managers. 

The EHF serves as a forum for members to raise awareness of industry issues and to contribute to the policymaking process at the EU institutional and member state level.
