The 5th conference on Hospitality and Tourism held online co-organized by the Bank of Georgia.

Due to the current situation worldwide, the central theme of the conference was devoted to the influence of COVID-19 on this industry. The pandemic also led to a change of the format, and the conference which hosted more than 400 guests in the past, was held online this year.

The conference included two panels, on which private and public sectors presented presentations on various topics related to the influence of coronavirus on this industry. Representatives of Tbilisi City Hall, Adjarian Tourism Department, Agency of Protected Areas of Georgia, Bank of Georgia, BDO, Alliance Group, and United Airports of Georgia were participating in the conference.

Representatives of the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development and Georgian National Tourism Administration addressed the guests. Online conference was finished with B2B meetings, where participants were allowed to establish significant contacts.

"National Tourism Award is an annual event, which is held in Georgia since 2015. It established itself as a reliable, unique platform that has made significant contributions to the development of Georgian tourism and hospitality. The number of nominees and winners has been growing year by year. Now, due to the current circumstances, supporting tourism is even more important, which is why we are glad that we make a contribution to the development and encouragement to the tourism and hospitality industry.", Bank of Georgia declares.
