Hospitality guest Wi-Fi and analytics provider has hosted the first ever ‘Friends of Wireless Social Dinner’. This informal get-together took place in the relaxed atmosphere of the Chiswell Street Dining Rooms and included some of the leading tech and marketing services suppliers to the sector.
The running theme of the evening was ‘collaboration’ and attendees where encouraged to openly discuss their challenges, new ways of working, and how hospitality as a whole could benefit when they work together to solve common problems.
Delegates included representatives from Fishbowl, Elliott’s Agency, Airship, Vidleos, Feed It Back, Propeller, Acteol, Yumpingo, CGA, Eagle Eye, Ignite Hospitality, HGem, Me:Mo, Startle, Propeller, Dotdigital, Checkfer, Propel, and Marston’s Telecom. Despite there being a number of competing suppliers in the room, and in keeping with the spirit of the sector as a whole, the attendees embraced the opportunity to open up and share their thoughts and experiences.
Dan Brookman, CEO of Airship commented, “I was delighted to attend the Friends of Wireless Social dinner in London. It was an intimate affair with around 20 guests from a variety of inter-connected companies; all with a focus on hospitality. The consistent conversation throughout the evening was collaboration and integration for the greater good of the end client. I had good chats with Airship’s competitors and we are all pretty much on the same page on this approach.”
A sentiment shared by Carlo Platia, CEO of Feed It Back “Wireless Social have always been committed to connecting with hospitality industry suppliers, to make life more straightforward for their customers. The Friends of Wireless Social dinner took this to another level by creating connections between their partners, hence multiplying the benefits for customers many times over. It was great to spend time with like-minded companies, all with the common aim of making life better for our combined customers. Well done to Wireless Social for making this happen!”
Wireless Social’s CEO, Julian Ross added, “We have built our business by working in partnership with a number of hospitality suppliers who are amazing at what they do. From talking to each of them, it has become quite clear that we are all working towards a singular goal and that’s to help our customers to delight theirs.”
“I had this crazy idea of getting everyone in a room together, including those who compete with each other to see what would happen. What happened was quite remarkable; everyone put down their barriers, had a great night, and had some very productive conversations. We are already talking about what to do for the next dinner.”
Wireless Social intend to host another dinner later in the year and include a wider network of partners, all dedicated to servicing the hospitality sector.
