The TREUGAST International Institute of Applied Sciences is unique due to it being the only research institute on the German market with sole focus on the hospitality industry. The institute is dedicated to applied sciences. On the basis of scientific approaches and methods, the knowledge and experience from its longstanding consulting activities and the management of hotel operations are embedded into all activities of the institute. This holds especially true for publications, research papers, analyses and concepts as well as events, speeches, and the (co-)supervision of scientific research.
