Keynote Address

Investing In The Industry’s Future

Business gurus have long advised that a company is only as good as its people. However, human resource cutbacks are all too common whenever economic woes threaten corporate performance. In manpower-heavy industries like that of hospitality and business events, how will savings on reskilling and upskilling today impact the quality of guest experience and event delivery into the future? And will the vulnerability of the hospitality and business events industries today cause a talent vacuum in the near future?

Readying For Take-off

As the world begins to awaken from the Covid-19 slumber, how will the flying experience look like? And equally important, how will airport clearance flow with intense health and safety protocols in place?
