Hospitality is an industry that if supported appropriately by governments can have a dramatic impact on the success of a whole country or region. The hospitality industry could be doing so much more therefore, to attract the attention of the leaders of countries in order to support a relatively un-risky industry to propel economic growth.

In this video briefing we hear from some experts who have some very clear ideas on how much impact hospitality as an industry can have, and the reasons why governments should support it. We hear from:

  • Puneet Chhatwal, CEO of Steigenberger Hotel Group on reasons to support hospitality
  • Martin Craigs, CEO of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) on why New Zealand have got the right idea when it comes to their tourism agenda.
  • Joseph McInerney, former President & CEO of the American Hotel & Lodging Association on appealing to officials with the promise of votes and not investment.
  • And Nick van Marken, Global Hospitality Leader of Deloitte on the leaders that need to emerge to support all industry out of the difficult economic times
