A personalized guest experience has become a necessity for hotels to compete in the digital age we live in. This is especially true when catering to younger guests, as 83% of millennials place so much value in a personalized experience that they would allow brands to track their habits if it resulted in a more customized guest journey.
To help brands address this, OpenKey CEO, TJ Person, participated in a webinar focused on key insights to enhance the guest experience through personalization. Person was joined by fellow industry experts StayNTouch CEO, Jos Schaap, and TravelClick VP of BI Product Management, Noah Borenstein.
