About Our Program…
Olga Cormier from the FIU School of Hospitality will be discussing Welcoming the Chinese Guest.  This is a program that explores the culture and expectations of Chinese tourists and how to train team members on their needs.  This will help hospitality organizations capitalize on the 116 million and growing number of Chinese tourists who traveled to the United States, including Miami, last year.

At our last meeting:

A trip to Miami Beach is like a mini-staycation. Many thanks to everyone at the Surfcomber for making it so worth the "trip."
