One word: Experiences. Whether personal, corporate, or civic—the ability to connect in person for a purpose, the power and impact an event can have on you, or just enjoying the sites of the world—it all starts with travel. The impact of travel and hospitality in our world cannot be underestimated, and I’m glad that I get to wake up every day in support of connecting people to experiences.
