Next week, Mason Rose is heading to MATTER, the collaborative “unconference” in Marrakech organised by Beyond Luxury. Also joining us will be three of our “Conscious Collaborators”, a collective of pioneering individuals in the wellness sphere. Mason Rose partners with these leading minds and hands to create authentic wellness solutions with integrity that drive revenue and occupancy for hotels.
MATTER provides a platform for visionaries and influencers to talk on a range of subjects that are key to the development of high-end experiential travel. There promises to be lively debate, discussions and valuable learnings. We’re as excited about hearing from the amazing range of speakers and attendees as we are to host our own events and workshops.
On Monday 11th September, our CEO and Founder Tanya Rose will be giving a talk on her twenty years of experience in the PR industry, entitled A PR Masterclass: How to Master the Modern Media Landscape.
Also on Monday, Mason Rose will be bringing together three of the top names in wellness for a discussion entitled SPA POWER: How to reinvigorate your brand’s wellness offering. Here’s some more information about our very talented wellness panel:
