Digital Transformation for Hotels – Why? What and How?
Digital technologies hold immense potential for all hotels, regardless of size. They are the drivers of superior guest experience as well as your hotel’s business performance. But too many hotels out there have been slow to benefit from adoption of these technologies, for a variety of reasons.

Many hoteliers we spoke with have said that they know they need to get on the journey of digital transformation, but didn’t know where to begin, or how to go about it.

In this webinar, we will try to answer what, why and how, and get you started on your exciting journey to digitization.

The webinar will be hosted by Simon I'Anson, Chief Strategy Officer with Hoist Group, whose main focus is finding Hoist Group’s myriad of advanced technology solutions their rightful home in some of the world’s greatest hotels. With over 15 years of experience in the hospitality technology space, he is sharing his valuable insights through these posts. Outside of work he is a big fan of many sports, including Rugby and Tennis, enjoys spending time with his family, and likes the type of music that should be turned up to ‘11’.
