Camilla Nata: Dr. Lo Mastro, a beautiful award ceremony at a time when you need courage.
Baglioni Hotels reacted first, launching in partnership with Core and Agorà Baglioni Studios, a new technological reality, which will allow companies to organize exclusive events, meetings and conferences in live streaming, accessible all over the world.
Camilla Nata: Dr. Polito, what effect does receiving this prestigious award have on you?
Honored and satisfied … we were able to complete a challenge in a year heavily affected by the health emergency. But it is good to understand that, as in many sectors, we think of the phenomenon of work and smart working, Covid is accelerating developments that, even in the hotel and hospitality sector, had been underway for some time.
The pandemic has taught us that the protection of the person concerns everyone and therefore the horizons of innovation and investments must necessarily orient themselves towards new achievements. Like digital innovation. Which does not simply mean using new technologies as such, but starting from these to rethink and simplify production and creative processes, such as supplying new goods and services aimed at improving the lives of customers, redesigning, in a logic of openness to change, the models that govern the business.
Camilla Nata: dr. Polito, a fundamental question for the world of hospitality in the extra-luxury sector: what could be the future?
Our sector will be an inspiration for the other segments. Accessibility, quality, sustainability, digitalization are the keywords that must inspire the relaunching of the Italian destination.
Precisely for this reason, the hotels in the luxury sector are developing initiatives that can create trust, reassure and better satisfy the needs of customers both in the tourism and business sectors. Once the emergency is over, people will better understand the non-obvious meaning of travel and the awareness of the holiday.
Camilla Nata: Dr. Lo Mastro, what are the programs of the platform and of the Excellence magazine?
Obviously, many of the face-to-face events scheduled for 2020 had been suspended, but for 2021, together with the publisher Luigi Lauro, we are planning partnerships and collaborations with a new impetus towards the internationalization of excellent brands, perhaps in digital mode or in presence where it will be. possible. We are back stronger than ever by presenting new products and concepts of absolute technological innovation… perhaps in luxury hotels.
Baglioni Studios will soon be available in other hotels of the Collection… who knows maybe the Maldives are waiting for us!
