Risk comes in many forms. The operational efficiency and reputation of a hotel can be threatened by something as headline-grabbing as a terrorist attack, or as seemingly mundane as a case of food poisoning. During this webinar, we will discuss the key drivers of risk and the main areas that are susceptible to threats. Additionally, we will present real life case studies and discuss the financial and social impact of each.
The travel and hospitality industry is faced with a variety of potential risks, including environmental, social and economic. Of the many challenges facing the travel and hospitality industry today, two hold the greatest potential impact on guest experience and profit; Risk and Sustainability.
