The hospitality committee promotes interests of hotels, restaurants, and the service industry through educational means by organizing speeches, as well as discussion platforms on current issues and challenges related to hospitality. Of course it’s also establishing to provide great networking opportunities for SwissCham members.

Through our events we assist in setting standards for China’s hospitality industry by giving insights to various topics. Here is a list of events organized over the past two years: food and wine pairing, developing 2nd and 3rd tier cities, starting a hospitality business venture, leadership, and sustainability.

The hospitality committee offers an extra value for SwissCham members who are engaged or simply just interested in the business of food, drinks, and service of high standards.
