Following one of the most challenging years the industry has come across, the Master Innholders is hosting a year-long programme of free events to support hoteliers from all corners of the sector.
Titled ‘Hoteliers – Battered But Not Beaten', the events will be open to all hotel professionals, regardless of location, role, experience or property size, and launched during a week of sessions between 22-26 March 2021.
Inspiring speakers and industry-leading specialists will host forward-thinking sessions covering topics such as finance, sales and marketing, people, and leadership. Following the launch, free monthly online events will take place to continue the learning, networking and development.
David Morgan-Hewitt (pictured), chairman of the Master Innholders and managing director of the Goring hotel in London's Belgravia, said: "The ‘Hoteliers – Battered But Not Beaten' initiative is a new programme to follow on from our existing Leading Through the Revival webinar series, which was viewed and utilised by over 3,000 hospitality professionals.
"Through spearheading and delivering a host of additional development events to the industry throughout 2021, we will offer accessible support to educate and inspire the hospitality professionals leading our wonderful industry.
"This has been a catastrophic year for hospitality and every hospitality business and professional has been battered by the challenges, however, I firmly believe that by working together and supporting each other, we will not be beaten. We will come back stronger and more resilient, paving the way to a truly bright and prosperous future for hospitality."
The Hotel Leadership Conference will not take place in 2021 but instead will return in January 2022 for a two-day event in London.
