The participants, Naseba informed, were introduced to smart technology, mobile apps and digital solutions to streamline their administrative processes and enhance guest experience. They also heard from industry leaders like Hideo Sawada, President of Huis Ten Bosch, Naseba said, who focused on the use of robots in hotels, based on his experience of running Henn-na, purportedly the world’s first robot-staffed hotel.

According to Naseba, a few of the other topics covered at the event were viability of hotel automation, streamlining hospitality supply chains through smart networks and the importance of centralising IT and embracing disruptive technologies. Attendees also reportedly participated in a “networking hub”, where they could connect with up to 20 fellow hospitality professionals in one-on-one sessions.
