Hotels increase tech integration to broaden international market appeal

Implications - Satisfying consumer demand for on-the-go connectivity, hotel chains are incorporating enhanced technology including stronger WiFi networks and digital keys for seamless guest interaction. Of particular interest to the LGBT market segment and millennials, enhanced tech integration encourages interaction when travelling and negates the preconceived notion of 'disconnecting' when on vacation to satiate guest preference for consistent digital stimulation.
