Thank you to all those who attended DMC’s webinar series, Road to Recovery: Travel, Lodging and Conventions.
Our panelists discussed what the hospitality industry can do to successfully re-open their operations and what meeting planners can do to successfully host larger events as shelter-in-place orders are relaxed. They shared examples of how to create a safe and healthy environment and a compelling customer experience that will spur travel and encourage meeting planners and the public to return to hotels and convention and event centers.
