Tuesday, 9 May 2023
10 AM CDT (UTC -5)

Adam Mogelosnky, Hotel Advisor, Hotel Mogel

Hotels in all categories are facing significant changes in global travel trends over the next five years including the growth of wellness, dealing with perennial labor challenges, appealing to hybrid travelers, technology-driven personalization, experiential travel, using event-driven revenue data and all things artificial intelligence. Knowing that these are going to impact hotels doesn't necessarily help when executives have to seek returns on a quarterly basis. This hangout will discuss these trends while framing them in terms of how hotel brands can implement the necessary changes that will deliver in both the short run and long run.
