  • #hotelNEXT was one of the best experiences of my entire life! We had the chance to pitch in front of 500 hundred leaders from the hospitality industry. I have met so many inspiring people and I have made professional connections that will help me with my future career. Thank you to the team of #hotelNEXT who made this possible for young entrepreneurs like me.
  • I enjoyed the networking and social parts of HCC. The presentations provided an insight into high level industry trends and a look forward to the next twelve months – things to expect or look out for.

  • WCHRIC (now WCLC) is a well-organized event shared by those with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the room. I thought there was a great balance of diverse backgrounds in the speakers chosen, which offered different expertise, opinions and viewpoints. The calibre of the people at the conference was the highlight for me. I appreciated the built in networking time.
