The Management Council met on 12 November for the autumn meeting to discuss important associative ordinary and extraordinary issues in consideration of the difficult situation of the Hospitality sector, so severely hit by the Corona pandemic such as: Ehma Lugano 2021; Future General Meetings; Future & Projects of the Association; Membership; European Hotel Manager of the Year Award. All members will be informed on the main decisions taken shortly. The next Board meeting will be held in Lugano on the occasion of the 47th annual General Meeting.
The Italian delegation had to cancel its autumn meeting scheduled from 6 to 8 November at the The St. Regis Rome, due to the latest restrictive measures on social distancing. The wish to “meet and gather” was nevertheless satisfied by organizing a successful virtual meeting on Friday 6th November, attended by numerous participants. The first part of the meeting was dedicated to the members to discuss the internal issues of the delegation, whereas the second was also joined by the loyal Italian partners and by Professor Romano Benini who made an interesting presentation on the theme “ BEYOND COVID: CHANGES IN HOSPITALITY AND THE VALUE OF MANAGEMENT”.
The next meeting in presence of the Italian delegation will take place next spring at The St. Regis Rome kindly hosted by the member Giuseppe De Martino.
