Day 1, Track B: Convert and Engage
Mike Ghasemi, 1:30pm-2:00pm
The guest experience begins well in advance of a stay. Mike Ghasemi lays out the importance of creating a seamless guest arrival experience and explains why hotel’s guest experience begins even before one arrives on your property. He also describes that personalisation of a guest’s experience is no longer an option and hoteliers need to make the move now to be a step ahead of the competition.
