If you do, this event is for you, which is probably anyone who interacts with the traveling public! Information Specialists, Museum Docents, Tour Guides, Front Desk Agents, Concierge, Cashiers, Wait Staff, Bartenders, Valet Attendants, Volunteers, Innkeepers, Store Managers, etc. etc.The list goes on – you are all invited
