Introducing the Smart, Safe, Sustainable Summit!

An ESG-focused springtime series for global mobility & business travel

As part of our bold vision for open industry innovation, last year AltoVita hosted the first-ever Corporate Housing Innovation Summit, which fostered collaborative product research and development processes to support the sector into the 21st century. Read all about what was discussed during the Summit and the new tools created on the Blog.

Now we’re back for our 2nd annual Innovation Summit – this time, with a focus on Environmental Social Governance (ESG) and our commitment to making the hospitality industry smart, safe, and sustainable.

The three-month Summit series will include cross-sector collaboration to improve smart, safe, and sustainable features within the temporary housing space, plus thought-provoking discussions with industry luminaries, an immersive in-person event, and more.

Customer voice is powerful. At AltoVita, we pride ourselves on duty of care compliance, operational excellence, and our ability to listen to our customers. The Innovation Summit is a manifestation of our customer obsession. Last year, we brought over 400+ global mobility and corporate housing professionals together. We stepped into the future to collaboratively discuss customer pain points, success stories, and product vision in safety & security and data analytics, among others. This year, I’m excited to launch the second edition of the Summit with a timely theme: smart, safe, and sustainable.

Then, AltoVita’s Tech Team Starts Prototyping

During Design Thinking, participants will raise a number of pain points and desired functionalities related to the themes of smart technology, safety and security, and sustainability within global mobility and business travel and how it relates to temporary housing. After this key meeting, AltoVita’s tech team will develop prototypes to help solve these needs and create new products to serve this audience.

These prototypes will be reviewed, refined, and tested during private Focus Group meetings on March 31st.
