Stay Boutique Live Announces Speaker Line-Up for June 5th New York Investment Event

Ian Schrager Still Believes in Boutique – Come and Hear Why

USA, Los Angeles, California. April 24, 2019

Stay Boutique Live, the Investment Edition Hospitality Conferences are some of the most efficient spaces to meet like-minded and collaborative individuals, however on-stage content is often the most overlooked aspect; an occurrence that Stay Boutique actively challenges through our careful curation of the boutique community's most established leaders.

Stay Boutique Live, the Investment Edition is no exception to our noteworthy reputation; join us on June 5, 2019 at The Times Center to gather insight from boutique's greatest minds, including a closing keynote interview with Boutique Hospitality legend Ian Schrager.

Jean-Luc Naret, CEO at La Réserve Hotels and Spas, will open the day with a keynote discussion, followed by a workshop hosted by Financial Gym Founder Shannon L McLay, insights on high-risk investment from Grace Bay Resorts' Co-Founder and CEO Mark Durliat, intimate interviews with Charles Khabbouth, Founder and CEO of Ink Entertainment, Richard Bosworth, General Partner and CEO of JC Hospitality Partners, among many other esteemed boutique hospitality and lifestyle's leading minds. Inclusivity as a top, we also welcome Nadira Lalji, Founder, Inhabit Hotels and Lucia Penrod, CEO, Nikki Beach Worldwide to discuss Progressive Investment - Feminism in Hospitality.

As boutique concepts grow in popularity (those that act as more than the typical "boutique hotel"), Stay Boutique addresses the importance of collaboration and multi-concept through inclusion of on-stage speakers with ties and/or parallels to the boutique hospitality community. At the Investment Edition, we welcome boutique concept Heyday's founders Adam Ross and Michael Pollack, boutique lingerie concept Lively's founder Michelle Corediero Grant, Shinola CEO Tom Lewand, philanthropic venture State Bags Co-Founders Jacqueline and Scot Tatleman, boutique meal delivery service Sakara Life founders Whitney Tingle and Danielle Dubois, and more to discuss boutique finance and the potential for exceptionally higher profit margins made available through collaboration and purpose.

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
