Join us Monday, 25 March 2024 at 08:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada) to hear from Claire Whitely, Head of Environment at Sustainable Hospitality Alliance (SHA) as she shared insights on the challenges and opportunities faced by the Hospitality Industry. 

Sustainability in hospitality is not just a trend but a necessity in today's world. The industry is challenged by the increasing pressure to reduce its environmental footprint while meeting the growing demand for travel and accommodation. However, within these challenges lie immense opportunities for innovation and differentiation.
