By Dave Berkus, Managing Partner at Wayfare Ventures LLC | 9 Sep 13

To kick off this special edition of The Hotel Yearbook, we wanted to set the scene with a look at some of the most important macro-trends that will drive hospitality – and with it, the technology challenges and solutions facing the hospitality business – in the years ahead. To get a handle on these changes, we asked internationally known author, consultant and angel investor Dave Berkus for some quick takes on what the future has in store for our industry.

This edition of the Hotel Yearbook is made available to you by PineappleSearch.
