NAVIS clients explore new trends, share experiences and discover strategies to drive performance and profits at annual event


BEND, Ore.  (March 8, 2018) – Attendees from previous years understand why NAVIS Leaders Conferences (NLC) always attracts such a large and inspired audience. With over two hundred attendees, the 2018 event celebrated a record number of participants with featured expert guest speakers from companies including MMGY Global, Marketo, TripTease,, Miles Partnership, STR, and Hotel News Now as the exclusive media partner.  Attendees were also treated to the unveiling of NAVIS Reveal, a business intelligence platform specifically designed for the changing needs of the hospitality industry.


Hosted at the TradeWinds Island Grand, the largest beachfront resort on St. Pete Beach, Florida, this year’s theme was “Discover Your Hidden Treasures”, representing NAVIS’ ability to help clients dig deep and uncover the hidden data treasures that increase performance and revenues. Topics explored emerging traveler and industry trends, digital marketing strategies, how to improve productivity and performance across channels, and a discussion of the new features and future innovations of the NAVIS platform.



When investing in NAVIS solutions, clients get much more than just the best hospitality sales and marketing platform on the market: they become part of a knowledge-driven community that enjoys sharing ideas and best practices, and NLC continues to provide that ideal forum for collaboration. Feedback about the event was overwhelmingly positive, with comments such as:


  • "I love coming to the leaders conferences 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. It’s an exceptional opportunity to learn and really advance our business.”


  • " Just meeting people and figuring out how they use the software program… how they utilize it to motivate their employees. I’m a general manager so training and motivation is a big part of my job.”


  • "I’ve come to the NLC because I really want to learn how to best use the software and I want to see what else is coming up in the future. I’ve networked a lot with different resorts I would have never talked to before and learned best practices on how to use the tools at my disposal. I’m really excited.”


“Beyond being a tremendous way to acquire more skills and build expertise, NLC provides an intimate and fun experience that fosters networking and long-lasting connections,” said company CEO Kyle Buehner. “Planning this event is always a true labor of love for our team as it enables us to engage with our clients and gain feedback directly.”
