Navigate 2020 Recap Day 1

A few things have changed since we last got together in early 2020, and we have a lot to cover. While we had hoped to bring our hospitality community together in-person this year, we couldn’t be more excited to bring the NAVIGATE experience to your office, your home, or even your couch in a new virtual format. With two four-hour days packed with thought-provoking speakers, and forward-looking sessions covering the industry’s most relevant topics, virtual NAVIGATE promises to deliver the educational experience you know and love.

And for the first time, we’re offering it all for free!

Day 1 Keynote Update

Meet the keynote speaker for NAVIGATE 2021, Chip Conley!

A rebel hospitality entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author, Chip Conley disrupted his favorite industry… twice. At age 26 he founded Joie de Vivre Hospitality (JdV), transforming an inner-city motel into the second largest boutique hotel brand in America. He sold JdV after running it as CEO for 24 years, and soon the young founders of Airbnb asked him to help transform their promising start-up into the world’s leading hospitality brand. Chip served as Airbnb’s Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy for four years and today acts as the company’s Strategic Advisor for Hospitality and Leadership.

We learn so much and bounce ideas off each other, what has worked for you, what has worked for other people. It’s truly unlike any other conference that I regularly attend in the industry.
