2018 NAVIS Leaders Conference Recap: A Masterpiece of Hospitality Knowledge and Networking

April 2, 2018 Cody Putman


Four hundred and fifty (450) PowerPoint slides. That’s more pages than One Hundred Years of Solitude. Not even as many pages as Moby Dick. And about three times as long as The Great Gatsby.


The 450 slides presented at the NAVIS Leaders Conference could go down in hospitality history, marking the most up-to-date information available about

  • American travelers (presented by Peter Yesawich, MGMY);
  • The U.S. Market for Independent Hotels (presented by Elyse Caffrey. STR);
  • Key Performance Indicators for hotels and vacation rentals (presented by NAVIS);
  • And so much more.




The event saw 173 attendees (a record number!), who not only had 32 sessions from which to choose but also got to take advantage of over 8 hours of scheduled networking. One attendee said, “I love coming to the leader’s conference because of the networking opportunities and the chance to catch up with NAVIS. It’s one of the few companies we work with where I feel the company really cares about the clients.” Because we care so much, we sent 59 employees to the conference to answer questions and share their abundance of knowledge about coaching, products, what works and what doesn’t, and case studies.


We always take the opportunity at NAVIS Leaders Conference to profile new tools and technologies our clients will see in the coming year. This year that profile included Reveal, NAVIS’s new business intelligence platform designed specifically for the needs of small hotel groups, independents, and vacation rentals. The Beta Program for Reveal is currently open to interested NAVIS clients.
