USA, Palm Springs, California. June 17, 2019

The second annual hot springs industry conference in the United States, the Hot Springs Connection, will take place on November 4-8, 2019 in Palm Springs and Desert Hot Springs, California. Designed for hot springs owners, operators, general managers, facilities directors and marketing professionals, the conference will continue to represent a national effort for commercial geothermal pools, spas and resorts.

The Hot Springs Connection is returning after a successful first year in Glenwood Springs, Colorado in 2018. "The amount of collaboration was inspiring," Scott Whitaker, Director of Operations at Glen Ivy Hot Springs, said. "I believe it got us all reenergized to continue to push for excellence in our field."

The conference is divided into two series. The first, in Palm Springs (Nov. 4-6), will have presentations, seminars, workshops, trade exchange and networking opportunities with colleagues from across the U.S. The second will continue in Desert Hot Springs (Nov. 6-8), including field trips and behind-the-scenes tours at local spas, resorts and historical sites.

This event is organized by Vicky Nash, CEO of tourism communications and marketing firm Resort Trends, Inc. Resort Trends has represented clients throughout the hospitality industry, with over 24 years of work with hot springs in Colorado. Nash also helped create the Colorado Historic Hot Springs Loop, an award-winning initiative, and planned the inaugural Hot Springs Connection in 2018.

"After a very successful first year, the Hot Springs Connection is returning with even more to offer representatives within the hot springs industry," Nash said.

Discounted registration rates are available until July 31, 2019, starting at $589 for hot springs operators. Sponsorship and vendor opportunities are available, ranging from trade show booths, presentation opportunities and inclusion in promotional items for the Hot Springs Connection.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
