2019: Artificial Intelligence in Hotels

 

After months of competition, Accor’s Take Off! student challenge has come to an end and was a great success! Five talented teams coming from Vietnam, Canada, Switzerland and the Philippines pitched their projects in front of a jury of 15 professionals. The teams showed a great amount of enthusiasm, determination, perseverance, and dynamism throughout the final. All the projects were well thought, aligned with Accor’s strategy, innovative and professionally presented.

 

Artificial Intelligence in Hotels:

Imagine how AI will enhance the guest experience in the hotels!  

 

Once again, this final proved that student-driven innovation is at the heart of Accor.

“It is super important to value talent, to value brains and also to rely on student’s imagination to design the future.” – Maud Bailly

The competing students came from 81 schools located in 19 different countries, and they were grouped into 515 teams.
