Executives from major hospitality brands will discuss and debate technology strategy at the Hotel Distribution Event 2014.

yBC will be attending the second annual Hotel Distribution Event this week. The event, run by Hotel Analyst, discusses technology strategy issues and looks at the impacts and opportunities created for the hospitality sector.

We are looking forward to fascinating presentations from Tim Ramskill, analyst, Credit Suisse, who will give an update on the ‘distribution revolution’, Simon I’anson, vice president business development, Swisscom Hospitality Services, who will discuss the impact of the ‘Internet of things’ on hospitality, and dozens of other experts. Andrew Sangster, editorial director of Hotel Analyst will be opening the event and moderating debates throughout the day.

yBC attended the event last year and clips from our interviews are now being used on The Hotel Distribution Event website and The Hospitality Channel. This year we will once again be interviewing all the key speakers and some of the attendees, and anticipate that interesting conversations around hospitality and technology strategy will be sparked.
