The year is now coming to an end and oh boy, what a year it was! Technology in the hospitality industry is of ever growing importance and touches more and more aspects of the “guest experience” (the buzzword of the year). And it is by far not only about Wi-Fi, Smart TV, Signage – there are mobile apps in all flavors, keyless entry, room control, voice, virtual reality, robotics – the list goes on and finally ends in a blockchain (nowadays we have to add this). And all this in the hospitality sector, which is on a trajectory which apparently only knows one direction: up, more, growing.

Working right at the crossroads of hospitality and technology, two equally wonderful and exciting industries, is really something to be grateful from a professional perspective. But life is not only about business and not always and everywhere it is without challenges. As always we therefor again decided to celebrate the holiday season not with giveaways but with a donation to Medecins Sans Frontieres.

As this year is close to end we also like to take the opportunity to sincerely thank everybody for all your support and we are looking forward to work together in the years to come. Given the technological development it for sure will stay exciting.

Having said that, we wish you and all your loved ones a peaceful and merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
