IRF Webinar:

Incentive Expectations and Reality in the Hospitality Industry

Webinar on October 18 at 1:00 pm – 1:45 pm ET

As demand for incentive travel increases, many partners – including hotels, destination management companies, and tourism boards – continue to struggle with labor and readiness challenges. During our next IRF webinar, we’ll discuss key findings reported in Open for Business: Incentive Expectations and Reality in the Hospitality Industry, a new study jointly produced by the IRF and Questex LLC. Our panel includes incentive industry suppliers who will speak to how issues such as staffing shortages, service levels, and cost increases impact the planning and execution of incentive travel programs. The panel will also offer realistic solutions on how partners can work together to bridge the gap between the expectations of incentive travel planners and the suppliers’ ability to deliver.
