BOURNEMOUTH, UK – Understanding the best way to use the myriad of technologies available to hoteliers can be time-consuming and confusing. To mark its 20th anniversary, the International Hotel Technology Forum will provide an indepth look at how hoteliers are using technology – and areas they’d like to see developed – via an exclusive broadcast on LinkedIn.

IHTF 2023, by Arena International, will take place in Vienna from Tuesday 28th to Thursday 30th March. The show’s official media partner Haynes MarComs (creator of the popular Travel Market Life series) has arranged an online event with some of the hospitality industry’s foremost commercial and technology leaders.

The ‘Live Discussions from IHTF’ – hosted exclusively on the Travel Market Life LinkedIn page – will begin at 1pm CEST/12pm BST on Wednesday 29th March 2023. Guests include:

  • Julien Duclos, Global Director of Digital Strategy, Kempinski Hotels S.A.
  • Roger Tabbal, VP Global Guest Technology & Innovation, Accor
  • Tomeu Fiol, Global Hotels Technology Director, Melia Hotels International
  • Chris Bowling, Head of Digital Marketing & Ecommerce, Best Western Hotels
  • Raimund Notz, Director of Hotel Revenue Optimization, Preferred Hotels & Resorts
  • Vineeth Purushothaman, Regional Director, Commercial Planning & Distribution EMEA, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts
  • Roberto Gobo, Director of Digital Strategy and Technology, Valamar Riviera

Ryan Haynes, founder of Haynes MarComs and host of Travel Market Life, said: “Hotel tech stacks remain a hot topic in the industry. With a multitude of software available to add on, each serving a valuable role for hoteliers, understanding how to get the best from your technology is key. And there’s no better way to do that than by hearing it straight from the horse’s mouth!

“The impact of AI and automation will reach every corner of a hotel’s business, but what technology should hotels be prioritising amongst all the buzz? IHTF has gathered some of the most creative, outspoken and knowledgeable people from within the hotel tech sector for a candid look at what technology can – and needs to – do within a hotel.”

The Live Discussions from IHTF 2023 event will take place on Travel Market Life’s LinkedIn page at 1pm CEST/12pm BST on Wednesday 29th March 2023. Registration is now open.
