How to Celebrate the World's 50 Best with Mark Sansom

What a great way to start the summer by celebrating with a guest whose job it is to celebrate the best of the best.

Mark Sansom has been Director of Content at The World’s 50 Best Bars, 50 Best Discovery, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, and soon to be the World’s 50 Best Hotels for the past 5 very momentous years!

Today he guides us through a bit about the history of World’s 50 Best, but mostly we get to what’s been happening since Covid and how the site and events have changed since Mark joined the team.
