The Leadership Day gives HSMAI Europe volunteers the opportunity to discuss and analyze the industry’s organizational challenges together with their peers in the hospitality industry. The day starts with members of all HSMAI Region Europe Advisory Boards gathering together to discuss current trends and challenges of the industry.
The program will start at 11 am with the separate meetings of all six Advisory Boards, including the two new ones Innovation and Culture & People. The second part of the day and evening they will share the outcome of these respective meetings, since HSMAI is working more and more across disciplines and less in silos. The day is followed by a reception/dinner.
