Luxury Hotels: ILHA Pinnacle Summit Roundup


“Issues at the intersection of luxury, hospitality, and wellness travel” were the focus of the ILHA Pinnacle Summit, which kicked off on Sunday at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Centre in Washington D.C. The event hosted a number of high-profile speakers — including Arianna Huffington, President and Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post, who touched on the importance of sleep and how it relates to performance and productivity.

The summit got started with a talk, delivered by Shane Green, the founder of SGEi, about how hoteliers can develop a culture that enriches the guest experience.

Over the course of three days, attendees heard from hotel executives, travel and hospitality media professionals, hospitality academics, and more.

There were even cute critters to see and relaxing experiences to be had on the exhibition floor.

On the final day, Arianna Huffington gave her keynote address and Benbria’s head of marketing presented findings from research conducted in partnership with the Cornell School of Hotel Administration.
