The AMFORHT World Forum is held annually.
It is considered to be the AMFORHT's most important event as it provides a unique opportunity to gather the majority of AMFORHT members physically and to network.
It is open to any potential member interested in the activities of AMFORHT.
Through a well-balanced program, it offers a platform for sharing ideas and good practices in the hospitality, F&B, and tourism sectors, with a focus on the social dimension.
It is the biggest international convention of professional, institutional and government stakeholders involved in hospitality and tourism training and education, as well as personalities from the sectors.
It showcases AMFORHT's values, while bringing together new and future members, and stimulating the evolution of the structure and actions of its members.
We will do our utmost to design and implement this 24th AMFORHT Word Forum as a truly sustainable and smart event, not only through minimizing its carbon footprint and resources consumption but also maximizing its economic, sociocultural and environmental benefits for the local communities.
