HEC 94: March 14-17, 2019

Finding Synergy

Beyond the Lines of Traditional Hospitality

In today’s modern landscape, hospitality is everywhere. The concept of service is now manifesting itself in surprising ways across industries from technology to healthcare and everything in between.

This year, HEC will examine the ways that hospitality infuses itself into other industries and breaks the boundaries of what is considered “traditional”. Our program will highlight unexpected mergers, uncommon combinations, and the synergy between service and the rest of the world. We will also explore how the hospitality industry is doing more for its guests, society, and the environment outside of conventional expectations.

Leading this conversation as a keynote speaker will be Mrs. Valerie Ann Wilson, the founder, owner, and CEO of Valerie Wilson Travel.
