This half-day exciting event comprising panel discussions and a networking cocktail reception will bring together influential leaders in hospitality design, technology and branding to discuss opportunities and challenges in the lodging sector, especially in the trendy and boutique hotel space. The conference gives attendees the chance to network, gauge trends and take away valuable advice from experts who are at the cutting-edge of creating unique concepts and lifestyle hotel brands.
With renewed optimism in hotel development, and consumers looking for the ‘It’ property, new hotels are increasingly trying to differentiate themselves from the competition. Two elements are critical in infusing uniqueness into a hotel property – its brand and its design. Both these elements affect not only consumers’ initial desire to book a room, but also their experience during the stay and their subsequent decision to return or not.
With increasing consumer preference to stay in differentiated hotel concepts that offer unique experiences along with a strong “sense of space” – Hotels Curated NYC is focused on finding – and understanding – how innovative hotel properties and brands are developed and created.
Hotels Curated NYC spotlights Art and Innovation in Hospitality. The event will highlight the marriage of branding, design and technology within the hospitality industry – especially as it relates to creating new and innovative hotel spaces that not only have a revenue upside potential and customer loyalty benefit, but also create community and value for the neighborhoods they inhabit.
Leading hospitality executives, investors and developers, operators and designers will participate in robust discussions on diverse and timely industry topics such as development, the economy, creating unique concept hotels, new trends,evolving consumer preferences and how to engage them.
This event will feature two panels and a special “Innovators Showcase”. The moderated Q&A panel discussions will each be approximately one hour-long with audience Q&A at the end of each session that will allow you to connect with the speakers personally and pose your specific questions or interests .
