Event description
HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND THE HOTEL INDUSTRY

About this Event

Traffickers often take advantage of the privacy and anonymity accessible through the hospitality industry. This presentation will help attendees understand why hotels are vulnerable to human trafficking and how to identify the critical intervention points within hotels where signs of trafficking can be spotted and preventative measures can be put in place.

"As an industry, we recognize that hotels can play an important role in fighting human trafficking networks which often rely on legitimate businesses, including hotels, to sustain their illegal operations and infrastructure.”

– Katherine Lugar, AH&LA president & CEO

"The University of Washington evaluated BEST's hotel training and found that trained employees were more likely to report potential instances of human trafficking to their managers. It also found that 96 percent of training participants believe training made their hotels safer."

- Business Travel News, August 2019

This presentation is part of the 2nd Annual Medical Symposium on Human Trafficking scheduled for February 4 - 8, 2020. For the complete list of class offerings, please visit: ImPACT Virginia. The Symposium is free and open to the public.
