Today’s state-of-the-art is tomorrow’s ho-hum. Staying ahead of the consumer, much less the industry, is the challenge for today’s purveyors of luxury. HM News Editor, Roderick Eime meets an expert on luxury, Welf J Ebeling, Executive Vice President and COO of The Leading Hotels of the World (LHW) for his take on the world of extraordinary hospitality.
