Across its existence, GREEN Hospitality has hosted a series of Think Tanks - small industry roundtables - to connect key hospitality stakeholders with industry experts, technology start-ups, solutions providers, civil society organisations, and academia, with the aim of defining the most pressing challenges and opportunities for the sustainable evolution of the sector, as well as finding innovative solutions to address these issues.

 

At the "GREEN Conference 2022 - Hospitality Agenda 2030" we will take a closer look at 6 of these topics with the support of local and international experts, with a vision to devise a clear action plan for the industry in Hong Kong and beyond.
