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: Selling Experiences

There are innumerable strategies that Hotel Sales and Marketing Directors employ to find, engage and entice guests to their property, and those strategies are constantly evolving. A breakthrough technology, pioneering platform, or even a simple algorithm update can cause new trends to emerge and upend the best laid plans. Sales and marketing departments must remain agile so they can adapt to the ever changing digital landscape. As an example, the popularity of virtual reality is on the rise, as 360 interactive technologies become more mainstream. Chatbots and artificial intelligence are also poised to become the next big things, as they take guest personalization to a whole new level. But one sales and marketing trend that is currently resulting in major benefits for hotels is experiential marketing - the effort to deliver an experience to potential guests. Mainly this is accomplished through the creative use of video and images, and by utilizing what has become known as User Generated Content. By sharing actual personal content (videos and pictures) from satisfied guests who have experienced the delights of a property, prospective guests can more easily imagine themselves having the same experience. Similarly, Hotel Generated Content is equally important. Hotels are more than beds and effective video presentations can tell a compelling story - a story about what makes the hotel appealing and unique. A video walk-through of rooms is essential, as are video tours in different areas of a hotel. The goal is to highlight what makes the property exceptional, but also to show real people having real fun - an experience that prospective guests can have too. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
