MEET THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY.

Welcome to SMACK Hospitality Media.

Just like our name, everything we do here is a little different and yet you’ll probably have more fun here than elsewhere. SMACK is a one-of-a-kind hospitality entertainment format with the goal of providing hospitality related content in modern media formats.

Amongst other things we run a hospitality podcast, with which we aim to give everybody around the world the chance to meet key decision makers of the hospitality industry. Chasing that ambitious goal, our hospitality podcast airs twice a month between September and July.

Beyond that you’ll find our other formats here, including our fan-favourites humans of hospitality and Ask me anything. When we embarked on our mission with SMACK at the end of 2019 we had no clue where this journey might lead us – and to this day we still don’t.

So join us, tune in and never ever lose your curiosity.

Enjoy the show!
