How live video streaming is changing the way your customers research and buy and what it means for the hospitality industry
Andre and Aman co-founders of GoInStore initially launched live video streaming to bridge the gap between online traffic and physical assets / staff for the retail industry. The hospitality sector has quickly embraced this technology, which allows potential bookers / VIPs to click a button on your website and be taken to your hotel / venue space, where your staff through the use of a mobile device or smart classes can build a one to one relationship with them in real time. This new tech is already improving customer experience, increasing lead to booking conversion rates and building loyalty. During the seminar Andre and Aman will take you on a journey of how this is changing the way your customers research and buy, what it means for you and what the future may hold.
