HOSPITALITYABC What is "Employee Relationship Management"?
Warsaw (April 24, 2015). 80 percent of the speakers and talk round participants have already confirmed two months before the event. This is a good sign for the second edition of the small, refined "Spotlight Hotel Investment Poland" Conference on June 16, 2015 at the Westin Hotel Warsaw. Registrations are still possible, the regular price of 160 Euro remains affordable. Up to the end of April, the early bookers were even paying only 140 Euro.
