Hospitality Afternoon Event in Frankfurt a great success


On Tuesday 12th July HSMAI Region Europe and the Travel Industry Club Germany (TIC) hosted a successful first collaboration event in Frankfurt. The event took place at the beautiful Kempinski Hotel Frankfurt Gravenbruch with more than 80 participants.
