The Nigerian Hotel and Catering Institute (NHCI), the flagship of professional services to the hospitality, catering and tourism industry in Nigeria, is set to hold her 15th Annual General Meeting and 39th Hospitality, Catering Professionals and Practitioners Conference.
  
With the theme, Hospitality and Tourism Industry in the New Normal: Strategies for Sustainability, the event will commence on November 15, 2021, and runs through 18, at the Etal Hotels, Kudirat Abiola Way, Oregun, Ikeja Lagos.

  
According to NHCI Secretary, Victor Olanrewaju Kayode, the conference is an annual programme that brings together professionals looking into the various aspects of Hospitality, Catering and Tourism development. 

“It is an assembly of caterers, lecturers, nutritionists, housekeepers and hospitality practitioners in the industry, hospital, corporate organisations and educational institutions to review modern trends in the practice of hospitality and catering in Nigeria. It is also our usual avenue to review current and prevailing government policies as it affects the industry and practice.”

  
Kayode further said: “To demonstrate the Institute’s responsiveness to the needs of its stakeholders and encourage members of the profession to have the adequate and technical knowledge and skill in the drive towards maintaining professional excellence, NHCI under the resourceful leadership of the National President, Mrs. Bola Dada, has also highlighted sub-themes on operational challenges and strategies for harnessing opportunities, Security and safety complications – a proactive approach, onboarding innovation and technological interventions in hospitality operations, review of sustainable environmental policies and impact on tourism and hospitality operations, exploring financial opportunities and its sustainability and welfare catering – a  post COVID paradigm.

He, however, noted that new practitioners into the professional membership grades would also be inducted at the event, while Fellows and Corporate Members Luncheon will hold with the investiture of the new President for early 2022 to equally review governmental policies affecting the sector and practice.
