Rather than “Location! Location! Location!”, a hotel’s new mantra should be: “Diversify! Diversify! Diversify!” At HT-NEXT 2022, attendees will learn how their peers are finding new ways to make more money via creative uses of reservations, subscriptions, kitchen space and in-room sales. This year, HT-NEXT will take place at the Fontainebleau Miami from Dec. 5-8.
