I was really impressed with Recharge. It was my first time attending and having been to hundreds of networking events in the past, Recharge certainly attracted a very generous number of senior & executive level likeminded individuals. It wasn’t an event looking to fill quotas, but to genuinely bring together industry leaders and rising talent to share valuable knowledge and insights on key industry trends and developments. The venue was very good, the staff highly attentive and it was definitely worth travelling all the way to Paris to attend. Huge thank you to the International Hospitality Media team for organising. I will see you again in 2023.
