“It’s the first time for me to come to this conference. I find it very useful because new management is in everyone’s mind these days. And also, I like to keep up with what’s going on in the industry. We have to know what our customers want, not what we think they want. We have to know what they want so that gives us insights on,” said Peter Chiu, VP, Project/ Hotel General Manager, Regal Riverside Hotel.
“This is the first time speaking at the [event] and it has been a great experience so far. What I really like is that we were discussing a very current and applicable topic about F&B tech, which is the future of our industry. And we need to deal with, adapt, and start embracing some of it. And [having to work] with these avenues because they can be pros and cons. But the way the world is going is the future with technology and A.I., “ said Harsh Roopchand, Consigliere, Amalfi tana.
