The grandeur of this curtain raiser witnessed semblance with the success of the first edition of India International Hospitality Expo (held between 8-11 August’ 2018) which witnessed over 200+ Exhibitors and 6000+ top decision makers from the hospitality industry.

Continuing the tradition, this curtain raiser was dynamic, high-powered and immensely successful wherein top hospitality changemakers and stalwarts graced the dais and shared their vision for the future of hospitality in the country.
