CMP Emeritus, CMM | Meeting Professionals Against Human Trafficking, Toronto, ON

Sandy Biback has been a member of the conference/business/event business for over 35 years.

Sandy has, for about 15 years, taught hospitality and conference management at a variety of Ontario Canada colleges. She has served on countless boards within professional associations, has collaborated on industry textbooks and has spoken at many industry events; has been published widely. She has won several awards for her work, her teaching and her mentoring.

She began researching the horrors of sex trafficking and realized it WAS happening in hotels at all levels; at conferences; at sporting events, etc.  She formed Meeting Professionals Against Human Trafficking (www.mpaht.com) as a grassroots organization with a group of passionate professionals, to create awareness and collaboration between planners and hotels.  Ultimately MPAHT wants to see every planner ask about training of every hotel they intend to use AND to see every hotel have training in place for all staff.
