McLean, VA (PRWEB) October 16, 2015
The Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association is partnering with the Consumer Electronics Association to produce an HSMAI Executive T.H.I.N.K. (Travel & Hospitality Innovation, Networking & Knowledge) program – a private curated tour for hotel executives at the 2016 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, on January 6-9, 2016.
HSMAI Executive T.H.I.N.K. was developed at the request of a number of hospitality executives who would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend this unique showcase of emerging technology. The program consists of two tours where HSMAI and a CEA economist will schedule demonstrations with companies who create the latest in lifestyle technologies, which may have future implications on consumer behavior and ultimately, the hospitality and travel industry.
“Attendees of HSMAI Executive T.H.I.N.K. will have the unique opportunity to receive insights into consumer behavior and discuss their views on potential implications for the hotel guest and the hospitality industry of the future,” said Robert A.
