“Information technology plays a major role in every industry, especially during the pandemic.”
This was one of the insights revealed at the “In & Out: An Insight and Outlook on What Lies Ahead for the Hospitality Industry” webinar sponsored by SKYBIZ on Nov. 25.
Featuring speakers Christine Ibarreta, president of Hotel Sales and Marketing Association Philippines, and Edison Go Tan, Elinnov Technologies Inc. chief technology officer, the webinar gave hoteliers an idea of where the industry is headed as the world continues to grapple with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
For Ibarreta, the health crisis has affected the travel and service sector in many ways.
“[The industry] experienced enormous productivity loss and switched to survival mode to stay afloat,” she said. Despite the effects of the pandemic, she noted that approaching the new normal setup, hospitality services are taking the lead in economic recovery.
Elinnov’s Go Tan talked about how technological advancements would help improve services and grow businesses, particularly in the hospitality industry. In addition to the possible digital solutions, he stressed the importance of privacy guidelines to safeguard one’s venture.
