THINK Hospitality partnered Only A Pavement Away to produce and programme direct their inaugural conference, as a pro-bono project. The event was labelled a ‘great success’ by many in the sector and has received high commendation and considerable publicity from the main media outlets in the sector.
Held at H Club, the event brought together speakers from politics, charities and the hospitality sector, each with the aim of broadening the discussion on how hospitality can help the homeless, ex-offenders and ex-veterans into the workplace. Over 150 attendees joined.
