WATERCOOLER AUGUST 30, 2018:

VIDEO EDITION

Welcome to the Watercooler! In the sake of summer... and the fact that Rich is busy horsing around in Saratoga, we decided to try something new. So we collected some of our newest videos to share with you. You'll get to hear exciting thoughts on innovation from HSMAI recaps and check out what dormakaba's up to with their new locks. And did I mention we made a newscast? So step away from the pool, take a break from the summer festivities and let the videos roll, or um play! 
Get the latest in hospitality news by joining Liv & Liz as they cover what's going on in the wonderful world of technology.
