February Eatup: The Future of Hospitality

Juliann DiNicola

 

We had the absolute pleasure of having Anthony Rudolf, founder of Journee; Simon King, General Manager of The Modern; and moderator Sean Murphy, Editor-in-Chief of Jetsetter, speak about how technology is changing the hospitality industry.  The conversation ranged from mobile payments - imagine a busy bar,  four-people deep, and the bartender not having to make change - to a debate on the value of apps that charge to make reservations. During the audience Q&A, an attendee asked why hospitality has been slow to adapt to rapidly changing technology and all agreed - technology is not at the center of their business. Quoting Simon King, "The core values of our trade haven't changed, and I don't see them changing. It's about people."
