The Annual Hotel Conference (AHC) took place on the 9th and 10th of October 2019 and Cardonet were proud this year to be official sponsors, along with some of the biggest and brightest names in the hotel trade.
We were pleased to have the opportunity to talk to many of our customers informally whilst at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel, as well as start or extend conversations that we are having with other hoteliers with operations located throughout the UK and beyond.
As an event, The AHC brings together everyone involved in hotel operations, from hotel owners and hotel operators, to hotel suppliers and hotel financiers. It was great to see and talk to the variety of people and businesses all involved in making sure that the guest experience is a positive one and that the hotels provide a positive return for their owners and investors.
As a leading hotel IT supplier, it was a superb opportunity to engage with key decision makers and demonstrate the important role that technology plays in hospitality throughout the guest journey, be that automating tasks and protecting their hotel data, to removing frustrations and distractions when your chosen technology stops working.
Particularily interesting conversations were had around our:
- 24×7 5* Hotel IT Support Services.
- Hotel IT Consultancy Services.
- Help with IT when new hotels are being developed.
- Technology help with hotel refurbishment projects.
- Experience helping hotels change brands.
- Knowledge migrating the IT of a managed hotel to a franchise hotel.
- Hotel IT Compliance Services, such as PCI and GDPR.
As a key technology partner for a host of different hotels located throughout the UK and Europe, it was hugely beneficial to listen and talk to key players in the industry, understand their current challenges and assess how we could play our part to help overcome them.
Given the variety and complexity of hotel IT systems available on the market, it is vital that as a hotelier, you engage with a partner who understands your guest journey and how your diverse systems interface together.
