A new culture of ride-sharing/apt-sharing/all-sharing economies are shaking up traditional hospitality, and the outcomes are mixed: some well-known hotel brands are struggling to maintain their brand loyalty, while others are prospering and continuing to expand. Like any shift to a status quo, innovation is key to success.
This year, we're looking at every angle of new-age hospitality from Chicago's premier owners, investors and hospitality executives. We'll be delving into new developments, branded vs. non-branded hotels, how to cultivate experience & maintain customer loyalty, investment challenges, trends in construction & design and more. As always, there will be plenty of opportunities to network with the best in the industry!
