ILH-Israel Hostels’ next Hosteliers and Entrepreneurs Workshop will take place on 15-16 June, 2015. This will be the sixth installment of this event.
The fast development in independent tourism in the Middle East encourages a lot of new entrepreneurs wishing to open a hostel.
ILH is the hub for these entrepreneurs, to meet, learn from each other and from the experience of the network members and to cooperate. After 5 successful entrepreneur and new hosteliers workshops , we’re happy to announce the 6th workshop and invite participants from the West Bank, Jordan and other countries to join.
The Workshop will take place on June 15-16 (9:00-18:00) in Jerusalem. All lectures and sessions will be held in English.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide significant knowledge and tools to open, market and manage a hostel and also get to network and encourage cooperation with other hosteliers.
