Skift’s 2021 Hospitality and Marketing Summit offered a snapshot of the travel industry in transition. As hotels reach a pivotal midpoint in their recovery heading into a busy summer season, the event explored hospitality’s rebound and future during a jam-packed one-day session. Throughout the day, attendees learned about critical consumer trends, emerging marketing strategies, shifts in the guest experience, and much more during this important mid-point in the ongoing industry recovery.
