Details

IHIF is the place where the global hotel community meets; where it joins together as one. This is what always sets IHIF apart and makes it distinct. This year’s event, which gathered over 1,200 senior leaders, and arguably carried more meaning than in years past. It is proof that as an industry we can set the example for the world to travel and convene —confidently and safely.
