Hospitality gets own social network

Hospitality insiders—including those in travel, lodging, food and beverage, meeting and events, gaming, entertainment and recreation, tourism services, and visitor information—can now create a professional profile, maintain a list of contacts, and invite others to join their list of industry connections.

“With downsizing, industry consolidation, and budget cutbacks, ” says PineZapple President, Todd Kempinger, “there’s no place for the hospitality industry to connect.” In addition, traditional trade shows are becoming cost-prohibitive and ineffective. “Today’s ‘industry’ conventions only link up small subsets of the available talent, insight, and innovation,” continues Kempinger, “and big social networking sites don’t have the focus and structure to be effective for the unique needs of today’s uber-connected hospitality staffers.”

PineZapple also offers a fun and effective way to search for jobs, business opportunities, people, events, news, take advantage of insider travel bargains, and much more.

With the increasing demands on hospitality professionals during these downturn times, the PineZapple community can connect, share, learn, and grow all within one easy to use online destination:
