From Checking Google to Checking In | Understanding the Modern Guest Journey




FREE Webinar
Wednesday, July 24, 2019 @ 10 am Pacific

Presented by Podium

The guest journey is evolving. “Hotels in _____ city” searches have become the norm. Technology has played a huge part in that. Customers look to the top results in Google and trust reviews as much as a friend’s recommendation.

What happens after you’ve been found? How easy is it for a potential guest to connect with your hotel? Guests demand convenience, and hotels that don’t adapt will be left behind.

In this webinar, we will be discussing:

  • How the modern guest journey has changed
  • What hotels can do to leverage convenience and win more guests
  • Which tools can help your hotel adapt to meet your guests’ demands
