Virtual Design Event On How To Fix A Broken Hotel Industry

Category: , Posted:25 Jul 2020 | 06:00 am

C9 Hotelworks and Delivering Asia Communications are hosting a special virtual event titled –
Design Re-Invention. Radical Hotel Disruption – Bold Ideas for Strange Times -Volume 7.

Taking place on Wednesday 5th August 2020, 2:00 pm / Bangkok, 3:00 pm / Singapore. The event is free and you can register here.

WARNING: Parental Advisory – the graphic ideas presented at the event could potentially make hoteliers think for themselves.

How do your fix, what is arguably a broken industry?  Today, the hotel business has devolved into a vanilla-flavored, highly-standardized bed factory that could very well be sleepwalking off a cliff. We continue to see key disruptors like OTAs and Airbnb create entire marketplaces as hoteliers huddle in the corner sipping craft beers and backslapping themselves over terms like experiential, authentic and local.

Hotels have missed the memo and today are frantically looking at how to reinvent themselves in the midst of economic chaos. In the industry that is tone-deaf to the beat of change, this provocative, creative event is aimed at inspiring transformation, and presenting ideas how hotel developers, owners and operators have to change, or else die.

Our speakers will talk about how the entire process from design, to guest rooms, bars and restaurants and the human factor have to be completely disrupted if they are to sustainable.

Listen to Tim Kobe who brought the inspired thinking into the iconic Apple retail shop space. Martin Jones who helped W Hotels create lifestyle amidst a world of buffet and welcome drinks and leading hospitality brand expert James Stuart.

If you want to explore what is now a massive opportunity to rethink hotels, join this relevant and amped-up virtual conversation.
