5 Technologies Shaping the Future of the Hospitality Industry
Presented by: Matt Schwartz, Sage Hospitality

At home you watch Netflix, talk to Alexa and rely on a Roomba to vacuum your floors. You also count on strong cellular signals for phone communication and large amounts of WiFi bandwidth for streaming TV content. And you have a variety of ways to give friends, family and trade workers access to your house. From robotics to AI to IoT, there are many exciting changes in the consumer technology space. In this session you will learn how hotels are leveraging these technologies to improve the guest experience.
