    This session will examine the role of the largest hotel brand in the world – The Marriott Group with over 7,000 buildings and resorts in over 130 countries.

From hospitality, security, to mobile and keyless entry; we look at how the group is keeping their guests safe and achieving efficiencies without compromising user experience?
