… in an exceptional place, the luxurious Lutetia Hotel

We were honored and delighted to welcome:
Victor Donnelly, Business Development Executive at Decare Systems Ireland

Brian Dass, CEO of Appnostic (live from New York)
Celine Malka, e-commerce manager at Lutetia Hotel

Who shared their strategies and experience about the lastest trends in mobile application, multi-screens, online and  social media management.

It was also a real pleasure for me to introduce “Google as a Marketing Partner for Hoteliers” to a such interested and involved audience.

This day was given rhythm through very constructive comments and questions between the audience and speakers.

Thanks again to Liz Craig (CEO of Oneglobe Network), Future Makers Team, EMC-Campus team & Luxury Must, Tendance Hotellerie and Lutetia Hotel for
the organization of the Think-Tank.

Thanks to all MBA students who were present and shared their vision of the future in the digital area.

All the participants are invited to fill in this survey, in order to help us improve the Think-Tank each year.
