  • Introduction

    The scope of hospitality is ever-evolving - how will this continue to challenge the industry in this coming decade? Mindsets and preferences are shifting faster than some can adapt. At the core of navigating this evolution, are the people who need to adopt a multi-generational perspective, in order to drive business transformation alongside these changing needs. YHS 2021 seeks to empower our attendees to face the industry's challenges head-on, by inspiring a mindset that is constantly set on adapting and growing.
