With attractive ‘opportunity zones’, Monterey Bay is primed to catalyze innovative organizations and investors in these sectors with broad access to State, National, and International marketplaces.

2nd Monterey Bay Sustainable Hospitality Development Summit

Plan to join us for the 2nd Monterey Bay Sustainable Hospitality Development Summit. This exciting and inspiring event brings together international industry and thought leaders advancing sustainability in the hospitality development sector.

Hear from hospitality market leaders about how sustainability is at the core of their mission and business decisions. Engage with thought leaders working to solve the many complex challenges facing the industry, and our global community.

The 1st Summit, held in Fall 2017 activated the international partnership between the Monterey Bay region and the global ecotourism destination of Costa Rica. This Summit will expand on that base, and highlight market leading activities happening right here in the Monterey Bay region, and engage attendees with tools and techniques to continually improve their own operations and efforts.
