Raleigh/Wake County Hotel and Restaurant GM/Owner Forum
November 14 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Human trafficking networks often rely on legitimate businesses—many in the tourism supply chain—to sustain their illicit and illegal operations. Hoteliers are uniquely positioned to identify and disrupt this practice and can therefore play an important role in combatting trafficking through:
- raising awareness,
- improved coordination with law enforcement and
- ongoing workforce training.
Come learn from Raleigh Police Department human trafficking specialists about how you and your employees can become a part of this national effort to fight back against human trafficking and send a loud and clear message: We will not tolerate human trafficking in the hotel industry!
GRCVB and legislative updates will follow the human trafficking presentation.
The forum is an initiative of GRCVB and the N.C. Restaurant and Lodging Association (NCRLA) to better connect Wake County hotels and restaurants with organizations and resources that can keep them informed on issues, regulations and initiatives affecting their industries, plus keep them informed on opportunities to elevate these local industries even more. NCRLA is proud to partner with the American Hotel and Lodging Association in the national No Room for Trafficking campaign to engage America’s lodging industry in helping to stop human trafficking. Join us for one of three educational and informational sessions to be held across the state and learn how you and your employees can become a part of this national effort to fight back against human trafficking and send a loud and clear message: We will not tolerate human trafficking in the hotel industry.
Human trafficking is incredibly widespread and our hotels have an important role to play in keeping our community and our hotels safe from this harm.
