FHA-HoReCa at ConnecTechAsia Session 1: Where Hospitality Trends and Technology Intersect

Technology is the backbone of the hospitality industry and oftentimes, this technology intersects with the new guest and operations trends in the marketplace. Technology is a constant that enables the ability to address trends as they come and go. As technology innovation moves very fast, how do you know which trends are worth investing in and which will be a distant memory? Understanding the nuances of the technologies available is most important to consider correctly. Have the technologies been tested and updated for success? Is there integration and compatibility with other systems? The place where technology innovation and industry trends intersect is the place you want to be. In this panel, our speakers will discuss the technologies that went from trend to tried-and-true within their business.
