From a global pandemic that decimated the hospitality industry to a police killing that sparked protests and activism across the nation and the world, Meetings Today decided to “change the rules” of their annual Meetings Trendsetters to focus on the people who rose up during these challenging times.
“What an amazing honor to be recognized alongside such wonderful people that are making a difference for others. The Timothy S.Y. Lam Foundation provides support to industry professionals in so many ways and this relief grant was another example of that, and one that really hit home to me with so many affected. It’s our responsibility as hospitality professionals to help one another and this community always seems to step up when needed most, and I’m very proud of that.” Josh Jones, DMCP said. In addition to serving as board director for Timothy S.Y. Lam Foundation, Joshua Jones is regional president for Hosts Global.
