Conference will address hospitality health, safety, and other timely topics
April 9, 2009 - Tourism safety and security goes far beyond the aftermath of terrorist attacks or hurricanes. Nothing has been more evident in recent months. From the downturn in visitation to Mexico and lawsuits against hotels involving bed bugs, to crimes targeting tourists, mis-steps often impact the number of visitors to a city and reduce visitor spending -- and reputations are difficult to repair.
