The hospital industry is constantly transforming, and it’s hard to find time to catch a breath and figure out where the future is headed. Travel companies are doubling efforts to meet travelers’ demands for technology and wellness, and the sharing economy and the emerging millennial market are forcing industry leaders to rethink their business models. Even in a market where hotel occupancy rates are sky high, disruptive companies like Airbnb are breathing down hoteliers’ necks, and the pressure to provide unique, sustainable travel experiences is greater than ever before. Join Bisnow’s first national Lodging and Innovation Series (BLIS) of the West when the biggest movers and shakers rubbing shoulders with West Coast hospitality legends. The conference will focus on innovation and new distribution models, including boutique hotels and upcoming brands. We will also discuss the current state of hospitality development, opportunities and challenges in hotel investments, economic key drivers, and trends in construction and design. And of course, there will be plenty of schmooze & networking time!
