HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | SEPTEMBER 10 & 24, 2020

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.


According to Kajsa Krause and Tracey Sawyers, co-founders of Krause Sawyer, the design drew inspiration from the local warehouse structures and colonial detailing, industrial elements and artisanal craftmanship to hard-wearing garments and intricate tailoring. The design narrative was translated into details where raw materials meet refined finishes, art meets traditional skills, and where old and new connect.

The property also now has a new dining concept called Society Commons, which offers an all-day space for guests to eat, drink, play and work.
