The site’s massive variety of interest groups make the exchange of ideas and information a total game changer for many industries. It’s a great place to follow resources and communicate with industry professionals and leaders. Figuring out who to follow can be a little overwhelming though. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered: we’ve cultivated a list of the best hospitality LinkedIn accounts we love for latest trends, industry news, and developments in hospitality.

While this hospitality LinkedIn account is larger and more general by nature, we love the variety of conversations and discussions that take place in the comment sections. This group will give you more general information about the latest news and trends from the different sectors of travel and tourism, as opposed to one specific sector.

Members of this hospitality LinkedIn account include hotel chain owners, brokers, consultants, design firms, and even construction companies. Some of their latest?

It’s one of the biggest revolutions to happen to the hospitality industry: technology. Hotel Technologies & Software cater to both hotel tech employees and anyone looking for hotel management software or tech insights. Topics often covered are data security, wi-fi and BYOD (bring-your-own-device). You can also expect the latest updates on tech trends, new companies emerging and the happenings of software development within hospitality. A note: every profile is checked upon request to joining, ensuring that only qualified professionals will be able to post in the discussion. This makes sure that content is top quality.
We believe that there’s something on this list for everyone dependent on your level of interest in the different sectors, if you’re someone that’s just getting into the hotel world or if you’re a veteran, or even if you’re someone that loves to silently scroll, or love a public debate.
