“It was interesting to hear a European perspective on hospitality as I work in Asia and we know all about the Asian market. The content was great, the topics were great and relevant and I really enjoyed the Escape Room but the best bit was probably the coffee breaks when we could chat with some very interesting people. You (IHM) are the only ones to put on events like this and we want to support this and you as we come over especially from Asia for this.Dean Schreiber, Oakwood, 2019
