Over the past twenty years the hospitality industry has witnessed the fastest and most revolutionary changes in its history. The integration of the Internet, social media and digital communication has revolutionized accommodation/hosting. Everything is now more direct, immediate and complex.
Moreover, guests’ consciousness and competence have grown. Millennials, Generation Z, and digital natives, the guests of the future, are already present. The integration of technology in hotels affects each step in the customer journey, from the booking phase to the customer’s retention and loyalty after the stay.
