Hotels and other services for travelers want to create a home away from home. In other words, a place where people feel welcome and included. But many hotels aren’t prepared for Deaf guests. Therefore, they don’t know how to communicate or serve them. However, hospitality professionals who attended a training session were able to learn.

Local hotels learned to serve Deaf guests during the conference–and in the future as well.
