Network with fellow professionals from around the world

If you’re anything like us, we’re sure you miss socializing with friends and meeting new people! As many Canadians shift to working and studying from home, there have been less opportunities to network. When you work or study from a resort, you can meet different people from around the world with socially distanced activities and events. Royalton Riviera Cancun, Royalton Negril and Royalton Splash all hold daily networking happy hours, where you can mingle with fellow professionals and meet new people.
