2017 Young professionals Roundtable
Hostmark Hospitality

The continued success of the hotel industry hinges on the next generation of hoteliers. To operators, this isn’t anything new, but the acquisition and cultivation of new talent is one of the greatest concerns facing the hospitality industry today. This is why HOTEL MANAGEMENT met with 10 young professionals—some students, some already active in the industry—to discuss acquiring experience, the impact of technology and adapting to the changing needs of the next generation of guests.

It’s difficult to put a price on the value of a good education, though there is a reason “book smarts” and “street smarts” aren’t valued equally in all circles. Many successful individuals in the hospitality industry never specifically went to school to learn the business, but a case can certainly be made for earning a degree in hospitality today.
