SGS Global Manager for Travel and Hospitality, Peter Hvidberg, spoke at last month’s APAC Hotel Management & Technology Summit, Shanghai, China, to deliver a presentation entitled ‘What do hoteliers do to protect the brand and minimize risk?’ to industry representatives from across the Asia Pacific region.

SGS was invited to attend the APAC Hotel Management & Technology Summit in Shanghai on November 19, 2015 to share its experience and expertise in this sector. The aim of the event was to share information about new technologies and how to enhance operations to drive growth in hospitality. More than 150 delegates joined the summit from travel and hospitality providers, including major hotel brands.

In his speech, Peter Hvidberg shared the latest trends in hospitality, introduced the risks that exist in the industry and ways for businesses to protect their brands. At the same time, he also shared case studies on how SGS has helped hotels to enhance their operations. Peter’s speech attracted participants’ attention and they were quite impressed with SGS’s one stop services for safety, service, sustainability and security.

Alongside SGS, a number of hotel brands also shared their experiences with new technology and the issues currently faced by hotels and hoteliers. APAC participants shared their ideas freely and enjoyed the opportunity to network, benchmark and compare experiences on a range of topics.
