Discussão do comprador: Antecipando e definindo as expectativas dos viajantes para a nova experiência do hotel

Wednesday, October 28 | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM ET

With hotel gyms and spas closed, food service limited, and concierge services and housekeeping restricted, what does the new business traveler experience look like in hotels? Do traveler’s expectations match the current realities? Join buyer members of the Accommodations Committee as they discuss a variety of “top-of-mind” topics and lingering questions. How can we adjust traveler expectations? What is the future of loyalty programs? Should we be shifting property types and/or adding new property types in the travel program? How do we best communicate individual hotel requirements to travelers (mask requirements, public space restrictions, food service options, etc.)? This is a can’t miss session!

Boeing in response has launched the Confident Travel Initiative and is working across the industry with airlines, health organizations, regulators, industry associations, and other manufacturers to address these concerns and reassure travelers it is safe to fly.
