Email

More than 3,800 participants from all over Italy, more than 200 speakers, 25 international experts, 235 partner companies, 12,000 square meters of conference space: these are the results of Hospitality Day, a special day dedicated to the training for professionals in the hospitality sector, organized by the consulting and training company Teamwork, which was hosted at the Rimini Palacongressi on 12 October.

Mauro Santinato, president of Teamwork and developer of the event, affirms” I can only be satisfied with this edition, which brought international excellence to Rimini. After last year’s edition, which took place with a thousand insecurities and the prospect of a new lockdown, this year the atmosphere was definitely more relaxed since the tourism sector, which has struggled so strongly over the last year and a half, is finally starting to see the light again. This year the level of the speakers was very high, as was the quality of the partner companies that supported the initiative. I have been delighted by the high level of enthusiasm and involvement from the tourism professionals who participated, and I am receiving a large quantity of positive feedback. If these results have been achieved after eight years, I can only consider Hospitality Day as a reference point for the Italian hotel industry, working towards the next edition”.

Many high-profile names were involved, starting with Daniel Levine, one of the world’s leading experts on hospitality trends, and Ted Teng, Global President of the Cornell Hotel Society.
