Summary

In the hospitality industry, there is only one constant...change! You cannot talk about hospitality & retail these days without talking about disruption and innovation. With the advent of the "shared economy" the consumer experience has never been more important. What does this mean for Ft. Lauderdale and the greater South Florida Hospitality & Retail?

Join us as we gather the regions industry experts responsible for South Florida's most experiential restaurants, retail and hotels? What does the consolidation of hotel brands mean for the industry? What do home sharing companies mean to hoteliers? What role does technology play in this shift? What does this mean for the retail and restaurant scene in Ft. Lauderdale?

We will explore the major projects, trends, challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for our region at our South Florida's Retail & Hospitality Series on October 11th!
