Kevin Kelly, CEO, Sensei will talk about The Role of Wellness in the Recovery and Predictions for the Future and Cindy Estis Green, CEO & Co-Founder, Kalibri Labs, will give a keynote on Operating in the Age of Digital Disruption.

“The hotel industry didn’t need a pandemic,” said Cindy, “when they were already battling epic changes borne from a rapidly expanding digital marketplace. Retailers, bankers and newspapers have all been turned upside down by it; how will hotels manage? The implications are important to understand for hotels operating in a world where consumers are beholden to the likes of Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Airbnb. Recovering from the pandemic brought its own challenges, but it also revealed many opportunities for upper-tier hotels.”

Cindy Estis Green will explore how a luxury hotel can take advantage of the disruption over the next 1-3 years, whether the approach to customer acquisition will change and how the industry will measure its success? Data will be shared on luxury hotel performance pre-and post-COVID along with expectations of how the hotel industry will evolve over the next 5-10 years.
