Speakers announced for Hospitable Cities

First Speakers Announced

Hospitable Cities is an interactive international summit where we will debate and discuss how cities can improve the quality of welcome, their attractiveness to visitors and the role that the hospitality industry can play.

There is change happening in this area and speakers from around the world are being brought together to share their experiences and learnings at this unique one day summit. Most of the leading cities face genuine security fears and there is a need for safety. This summit will explore what we need to do for the future.

EP and eHotelier are delighted to announced the first line up of confirmed speakers:
