Who Says Virtual Events Need to be Boring?
The hotelREBOOT® Podference empowers hotelier's with a back to profitability business mindset in a marketplace with all new operational rules and customer expectations. Plus, industry vendors will learn how to best sell to hoteliers by understanding the newly minted rules of hospitality.
Unlike any ‘webinar’ seen thus far, the initial series of four interactive, engaging and entertaining events leverage live polling, real time audience interactions, myriad graphics and factoids combined with an entirely new structure focused on the themes of REdesign & REdevelop, REinvent, REfinance & REinvest, and REfuel.
