Getting Back to Business - COVID and the Hospitality Industry

How the Hospitality Industry is Getting Back to Business, and the role of technology post-COVID
As of February 2020, the Department of Economic Opportunity estimated that of the 9.1 million people employed in Florida, 1.3 million have jobs related to the tourism industry, which contributes $85.9 billion to the state GDP. As one of Florida’s largest industries, hospitality and travel is critical to our recovery. In this session, you will hear from several IT executives from different areas of hospitality on how their organizations are getting back to service post COVID, and the role of technology in their return. From temperature checking to touchless solutions and remote workers, technology plays a critical role in how services will be provided in the future.

Dr. Karen Jacobson
Founder, CEO Aligned Leadership Academy
Join SIM South Florida for our first Master Class, "Talk to Me in My Language - Key to a Successful Remote Team" with Dr. Karen Jacobson. Distractions, isolation, and lack of social connection are just a few of the challenges companies are facing now that teams are working from home.

Build your relationships with clients, customers, and team members by focusing on commonalities. Ultimately resulting in a higher level of trust, stronger relationships, and increased productivity.
You will learn how to:
  • Talk and connect with anyone, any time, regardless of their personality
