The event kicks off on May 5th with Hospitality Design’s own Stacy Shoemaker Rauen hosting a panel of elite hospitality leaders about the state of the industry. A keynote conversation and discussions on emerging trends and the future of hybrid hospitality properties will round out the first day of programming.

Day two will also include a keynote conversation, as well as a panel with hospitality owners on the resiliency of business in the face of crisis. On Thursday, May 7th, the event will conclude with four final sessions: How to Be in Business in a Post-Coronavirus Environment; Emerging Trends: Leading-Edge Concepts in Wellbeing; Ask the Purchasers; and Technology for Healthy Buildings.
