Arabian Hotel Investment Conference (AHIC) Online Event, Hospitality Tomorrow: Follow the Sun. Episode 2

The first edition of Hospitality Tomorrow attracted 5,343 hospitality decision-makers from 128 countries around the world. A truly virtual event, we are back for Episode 2 where we will follow the sun around the globe with a focus on China, India, the Middle East, Europe and ending with North America. 

Why are we doing this?  Because one thousand of you responded to our survey and said: ‘let’s do it again’ as we need to continue the conversation to assess the changes in our world and people - operationally, financially, and psychologically.  Where, when and how signs of recovery can be anticipated and the role of Travel & Tourism in accelerating momentum for recovery.‚Äč

It is crucial that we rebuild confidence in the global community.  Now is the time to continue the conversation - make those critical connections that you need to build the right understanding, relationships, unity and actionable ways to support one another now for a stronger response - as one industry, one community for one tomorrow.
