“One of the reasons that using hotels can appeal to human traffickers is because they are seeking the ability to fly under the radar by changing locations frequently,” explains Vijay Dandapani, President and CEO of the Hotel Association of New York City (HANYC). “But when hospitality staff are trained to recognize and report the warning signs of human trafficking, it can make hotels inhospitable to trafficking. This webinar with BEST will help teach the indicators of human trafficking in the time of COVID-19. I highly encourage New York City hotel managers and staff to attend this important event.”
