From the Director

Welcome from Cornell’s CHR. While campus may be a bit quieter with the majority of students off for summer the center is deep in the planning process for this falls Cornell Hospitality Research Summit (CHRS). CHRS kicks off with our fall CHR Advisory Board meeting October 4th and 5th with the conference itself opening up with a Luxury Panel and opening reception on the 5th of October. CHRS will feature a day and a half of content packed concurrent sessions on the 6th and 7th. Check back to the CHRS website for regular updates as we start to post session details.

On June 27th the CHR co-sponsored a research session and reception in Toronto, Canada as part of HSMAIs Revenue Optimization Conference. The session was a huge success with a packed room listening to talks. In attendance at the conference were 13 MMH students. Thanks to financial support provided by the school and dramatically reduced conference registration offered by HSMAI the students were able to get a chance to listen to and interact with hospitality leaders in the Revenue Management field as well as a chance to tour the conference floor at HITEC and see some of the newest technology facing our industry.
