During HITEC Toronto, Thor Hansen, senior director of Sales Engineering at Agilysys, will present a session on solution strategies that deliver High Return Hospitality. This session will examine the different solutions available to properties today as they seek to elevate service to hospitality through personalized, memorable experiences beyond those dictated by typical service protocols.
Hansen’s session takes place from 12:45-1:15 p.m. June 28 on Stage B of the Exhibit Hall at booth 2600.
“Great experiences are at the heart of hospitality. Hotels and resorts, who are in a zero disappointment industry, are constantly challenged with ensuring that guests have exceptional experiences during their stay,” said Thor Hansen, senior director of Sales Engineering, Agilysys. “Typically, it requires approximately 40 positive customer experiences to undo the damage of a single negative review. In this session, you will learn how to deliver truly exceptional experiences across the entire guest journey to drive revenue, loyalty and operational efficiency.”
