  • GREETINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT & FOUNDER OF HOSPITALITYLAWYER.COM It is my pleasure to invite you to the second Annual Global Con- gress on Travel Risk Management, focusing on legal, safety, and security solutions, held in Houston, Texas on October 1-2. We, along with the Greater Houston Convention & Visitors Bureau, are excited about hosting this unprecedented convergence of global expertise for the travel, tourism, and hospitality industries. Following Conrad N. Hilton’s vision of “world peace through international trade and travel,” attendees will learn about best practices, benchmark current policies across industries, view the latest safety and security products and services available, and discover the results of the most recent research being conducted around the world, including defining the corporate duty of care, best practices for mobile data and IP protection, as well as solutions for travel disruptions, including contagious diseases. Bruce McIndoe, president of iJet International, has expressed that “[we] are all talking about the topic of traveler safety/security and travel risk management, but we are NOT talking together, sharing and harmonizing solutions. Protection of human assets, whether trav- eling or not, is a multidisciplinary effort and organizations need us to work together to be effective. This Global Congress will provide a venue and forum to initiate and leverage a cross-functional dialog.” Very best regards, Stephen Barth ABOUT THE CONFERENCEThe travel, tourism and hospitality industries are a $3.5 trillion Attendees Include:global economic powerhouse encompassing transportation,lodging, and venues and events.
