At 16:45, the programme continues with US hospitality expert Anna Dolce and her talk “How to turn your guests into regular customers”. In her talk, Dolce, who has been in the hospitality industry for 20 years, explains why focusing solely on attracting new customers means businesses are slowly dying.
