Bend, Oregon (January 22, 2021) NAVIS, the #1 hospitality CRM and Direct Booking Platform, is excited to announce registration is now live for the company’s annual NAVIGATE conference, open to both customers and the hospitality industry at large.

With two, four-hour days packed with thought-provoking speakers, and forward-looking sessions covering the industry’s most relevant topics, the virtual NAVIGATE Direct Bookings Conference promises to deliver the educational experience attendees have come to love – plus even more this year. Top minds and key players in the hospitality industry will share trends, new technology, and strategies for career and business growth.

This year has a twist – NAVIS is offering free registration for the first time ever and opening attendance to all who wish to join, with the mission to eliminate cost being a barrier and to unite the industry toward recovery and a snapback after the effects of COVID-19. Now in its 14th year, NAVIGATE 2021 is expected to attract over 1,000 attendees spanning executives, marketing, revenue management, and reservation sales professionals.

The conference will also feature a keynote by Chip Conley. Conley is a rebel hospitality entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author who has disrupted his favorite industry … twice. At age 26, the founder of Joie de Vivre Hospitality (JDV) took an innercity motel and turned it into the 2nd largest boutique hotel brand in America. Chip worked with Airbnb’s founders, and served as the Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy for four years, and now acts as a Strategic Advisor for the company.

“It’s been a tough year for hospitality, but recovery is on the horizon, and NAVIGATE is our gift to both our clients and the industry at large to aid in that effort. Although we can’t join together in person, we are confident virtual NAVIGATE’s purpose to inspire, motivate and unleash the potential of the people and companies we serve will spread even wider.”
