Hospitality Technology Enhances Role of Industry
Hotel and Restaurant Technology Products Evolve
Design trends continue to evolve, as do design products. Hospitality Design magazine is the premier leader in honing in on important and new design, including the continuous addition of technology products to hospitality projects.
The HD magazine team continues to enhance its products coverage, with the addition of focusing on hospitality technology companies and products that are changing the hospitality design landscape. While our staff coverage runs the gamut of looking at technology in the form of iOS and Android apps, it also covers digital products, ranging from charging stations, USB ports, interactive mirrors and TVs, amongst others.
For example, products from hotel technology companies including Electric Mirror and Hotel Technologies enlist digitally enhanced products to enhance guest rooms. Restaurant design, too, is using digital notebooks, flat-screen TVs, and Wi-Fi to allure customers to their establishment.
HD is at the forefront of the technology trend, covering hotels that are employing technology through social-media efforts, creating design elements that are often posted on social networks, including Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter as well as using tech gadgets like Google Glass to engage with guests.
As technology evolves beyond alarm clocks and TVs and hotel technology companies begin to produce designs that are accessible on smartphone apps, HD magazine will expand its coverage, highlighting how “the next big thing” is changing the way hospitality designers incorporate technology in their projects.
