Super Session: Taking a Cue from Brands’ HSIA Standards
Over the past several years many hotel brands have developed HSIA standards for their portfolios that serve as good models for on-property Internet access. Keep on top of the requirements with guidance on how to maintain, enforce and enhance these standards. The session will also cover tough HSIA questions, such as: when will fiber to the room be a reality, what are the best options for back of house Wi-Fi, should there be a charge for connections and what kind of bandwidth is necessary?

If you as a hotel do not invest in the right solution or company, it will cause you several years of guest complaints and poor service, so why do hotels continue to make the same mistakes and why has it gone so wrong?
