It is such a great pleasure to welcome you to the 1st international Hospitality, Travel, and Event Conference organized
by Politeknik Sahid as a celebratory event of the institution’s 40th anniversary. The conference is being delivered
in a virtual mode in Jakarta on 1- 2 March 2023. While we have gone through devastating challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic,
this conference is held virtually as it enables us to connect with overseas experts. This forum aims to provide opportunities to share insights, ideas, and research on hospitality, travel, and events. Politeknik Sahid is privileged to initiate this forum. I would like to thank all speakers, participants, sponsors, and partners for their support. My appreciation also goes to our undergraduate
Travel Department students who helped create this event. On this 40th anniversary, we are delighted that we have made it this far. This is a time for us to express gratitude, reflect and move forward in a new direction. I am very pleased that we come together on this journey. I wish you all a fruitful and beneficial conference.
