In the hospitality industry, information is becoming stagnant, unreliable in many cases, and hard to find in an organized manner. Information and knowledge should always be accessible and organized; they should empower, inspire, educate, and cultivate. When it comes to accurate, organized, unbiased, and accessible information, the hospitality industry lags behind. Thus, the birth of TalkHotels - the first professional and social network for hoteliers.
TalkHotels is a tool for hoteliers to find products and services, along with valuable reviews from their peers; interact with other hoteliers throughout the world; take part in key industry conversations; and offset their carbon footprint.
As we help usher in a new age of hospitality — one that is open, connected, and accessible — we have several goals in mind:
1) Save you time and money.
The more time you spend finding, organizing, and processing information, the less time you have to make quality decisions at your hotel, and the more costly your mistakes become. It all starts with not only having the information and tools you need on a daily basis, but also having it in a manner that’s easily accessible, organized, and reliable. With TalkHotels, our goal is to empower you with the information you need to make swift, effective decisions on the go.
2) Connect you.
Interact with vendors, browse products and services, network with hoteliers around the world, and share knowledge and insight with your peers. All in one place. Build up your network at your own pace and keep track of what your peers are saying about key industry issues, which products/services they’re recommending and why, and also interact with professionals from other industries.
3) Reduce the industry’s carbon footprint.
Collectively, none of us can grow and prosper without a healthy environment. Since hotels are amongst the biggest culprits when it comes to adversely impacting the environment, we want to help educate and inform hoteliers of the various ways we can offset that impact — through methane projects, renewable energy, and reforestation around the world.
Those three goals will always remain in the forefront as TalkHotels continues to grow into a versatile tool for hoteliers and other hospitality professionals.
