When we book our holidays, we often look for places that offer us an escape and a sense of luxury. Hospitality brands are constantly evolving to make sure they are offering the best service possible and at a competitive price. The biggest way the industry is achieving this evolution is through technology, with hotels and spas adopting the latest innovations to rewrite the DNA of their industry.

These cutting-edge companies will be on display at this year’s Hotel and Spa Tech Live taking place in September over at the ExCel London centre, where the hospitality industry’s most influential figures will be taking to the stage to discuss the hottest topics in hospitality tech.

We’ve picked our top seven companies who we are expecting big things from in the coming months:

RoomOrders is a great solution that allows you to order your meal for the evening while on the go. Describing itself as ‘uberizing the in-room dining for hotels around the world’.
