Hospitality Tomorrow: Follow the sun

to
2496 people attended
90+ speakers, exciting new brands at the expo, plenty of networking opportunities and a programme that 'follows the sun' so our friends from the Far East, all the way to the Americas can attend sessions that add the most value to their businesses in the current economic climate.

A portion of all the money we are raising will contribute to a fund that supports those in the industry whose livelihoods have been affected the most due to the Covid-19 crisis.

The organisers have the right to refuse entry to any registrants outside of these parameters.
