"TMA Chicago/Midwest Chapter and TMA Toronto Chapter Invite You to Join us for this Cross Border Event"

While no industry has been spared, the COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the travel and hospitality industry as much as any including airlines, hotels and restaurants.  Join leading practitioners from both the US and Canada with recent operational, lending, investment and restructuring experience in this sector for an interactive and engaging dialogue.  Discussion will include the impact of COVID-19 on the sector, how companies are coping with depleted revenues, availability of subsidies and other support to keep businesses operating, how this issue will unwind and what the path forward is expected to look like.

Following the discussion join us for a virtual networking reception and get to know members from just across the border.
