Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has gone live with its first two remote conferencing studios, with plans to bring two more studios online in the next few months, it announced yesterday.
Marriott opened their first two telepresence facilities in January. Will more hotels look at hosting virtual meetings as vehicle to offset a decline in business travel? In my view it’s a smart strategy as they can generate food and beverage revenue that they would otherwise see and it gives them a leg up when the inevitable need for a physical meeting emerges.
