#102 Chris Hartley, CEO at Global Hotel Alliance, on Disruptive Technologies

Joining us all the way from Dubai, CEO at Global Hotel Alliance Chris Hartley shares what hotel industry trends to expect. It’s a very refreshing conversation as we rethink travel. GHA is one of the world’s largest alliances of independent hotel brands, formed out of a necessity to pool resources to compete with the mega brands. 

Chris was the first employee when the company was formed in 2004, and has seen the growth of the network since. The GHA now has a membership of over 550 hotels with representation in over 75 countries.

Tune in to learn more about the future of business travel, travel “pocket” trends, hotels serving local communities, and what it’s like setting up an alliance with other hotels.
