Founder of Mews joins a team of forward-thinking hoteliers at Independent Lodging Congress as an advisor.
Mews, the innovative hospitality cloud, announce the appointment of its founder Richard Valtr to the ILC Advisory Board. As one of the most innovative and thought-provoking independent hotel communities in the world, Independent Lodging Congress is a renowned platform for forward-thinking hoteliers.
In his new role, Richard will rely on his extensive background in hotel investment and management, as well as his vast experience in building transformational technology for millions of hospitality professionals and their guests.
“Independent hotels are where creativity is born in our industry,” said Richard Valtr, Founder of Mews. “I’m thrilled to be joining ILC’s board to champion the creators in our industry and support this great community.”
“We are very excited to have Richard join our amazing group of advisers,” said Andrew Benioff, founder & chairman of the Independent Lodging Congress. “He brings a great depth of knowledge in the hospitality tech space and even more importantly, he inherently understands the Indie Congress tribe.”
ILC has built an impressive reputation with their creatively executed events that bring together the best minds in hospitality for collaboration and idea generation. Richard already took the stage twice at Indie Congress – a year ago in Miami and last autumn in Los Angeles, with more speaking engagements to come. We wish him best of luck in this exciting new chapter.
