Cornell students win Radisson’s global competition
Ithaca, New York – 26 January 2017
Students from Cornell University have been crowned the winners of a global competition from Park Inn by Radisson that aims to drive innovation and enhance guest experience.
The team consisting of four students topped eight other entries in the ‘INNovation Room’ competition designed to unlock and nurture creativity amongst hotel management school students.
The campaign demonstrated the company’s continuing commitment to cultivating talent in the hospitality sector and driving innovation.
The winning concept offers guests a room service alternative with healthy, locally sourced, ready-to-eat food around the clock. The eye-catching design also uses a state-of-the-art payment system with label sensor tags to charge guest rooms directly.
Rose Anderson, Rezidor’s vice president, global branding & innovation, said: “The enthusiasm, drive and ambition of all the students has been outstanding and they have brought some bold, inspiring ideas to the forefront. However, we were particularly impressed with the Cornell’s team concept and can see the potential for it to enhance the stay of every guest coming through the doors of our hotels.”
