IDeaS Announces Fabian Specht Future Revenue Innovator Scholarship With EHL

EHL Hospitality Management School Scholarship to Honor the Legacy of the Late Emea-Area Vice President of IDeaS, Fabian Specht

United Kingdom, London, England. September 30, 2020

Global hospitality revenue management solutions provider IDeaS has partnered with world-leading hospitality management school EHL to offer the Fabian Specht Future Revenue Innovator Scholarship. IDeaS has committed to €15,000, awarded annually beginning with the 2021-22 academic year, to two international EHL students pursuing a revenue management education.

IDeaS' EMEA-area vice president Fabian Specht passed away unexpectedly in December 2019. A passionate and visionary industry leader, Specht was a returning lecturer at EHL, seeking to educate and inspire the next generation of hospitality revenue leaders. The Fabian Specht Future Revenue Innovator Scholarship honors Specht's memory and legacy of lifelong service to the hospitality industry.

Michel Rochat, EHL Group CEO, said: "Fabian Specht's passing is a great loss for the hospitality industry. We are honored his legacy will live on through this scholarship and help to shape the future of our talented students. We are also grateful IDeaS continues to show faith in the youth and has chosen to invest alongside EHL to support tomorrow's business leaders."

Dr. Ravi Mehrotra, president, founder and chief scientist, IDeaS, said: "Fabian's impact on the global hospitality industry was immense. For over 20 years, Fabian helped IDeaS define the market for revenue management. A hotelier at heart, Fabian was an educator, a market change agent, and a visionary in the hotel revenue management space. Most importantly, Fabian treated his clients and colleagues with trust and courtesy that will serve as a guiding example for our industry. Through this trust and courtesy, Fabian earned not only the respect, but often the friendship of industry leaders. This scholarship is a testament to Fabian's commitment to the industry, and IDeaS is honored to partner with EHL's premiere revenue management program to support the rising revenue leaders of tomorrow."

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
