Rebuilding Trust in the Hospitality Industry

About this event

Hotels, restaurants and flights make up the bulk of the hospitality industry. Recognizing the ongoing and increased uncertainty that has been caused due to COVID-19, the world is now more connected than ever before.

Keeping this in mind, and in line with the Destination X Infrastructure Summit set to take place this November, we will be organizing a series of pre event webinars aiming to connect and communicate the tourism and hospitality sector. Our virtual platform brings together leaders from the hospitality industry to share their plans and actionable insights on how to bounce back while ensuring the health and welfare of both their customers and employees.
