This issue of the Zonal and CGA GO Technology research report shines a light on what guests want and unveils the big opportunities and challenges in hotel technology.

For restaurants and bars, who have capitalised on the opportunity to grow their revenue by responding positively to consumer demand for new technology, this research shows that there is clearly huge scope to use technology to grow sales of food and drink and other services in hotels.
