As international travel slowly resumes, hoteliers are keen to seek out ways to elevate their appeal to potential guests, from high-tech booking systems to delicious food and beverage offerings that reflect local tastes. At the front desk, technology is playing a key role in the post-pandemic transformation, where artificial intelligence and advanced property management systems are helping to unburden human staff members. We find out more about front desk technology. 

Also, following the launch of Four Seasons’ Hybrid Meetings Platform, we take a look at the growing demand for virtual events and conference systems in hotels, find out how the booming market for animal-friendly hotels is benefiting from the pandemic pet boom, and we take a look at ways that hoteliers source and utilise high-end works of art to boost the luxury appeal of their décor.

Plus, we take a look at some of the most notable hotel openings and design concepts hitting the market and get the latest insight and analysis from GlobalData.
