TFE Hotels has again partnered with TEDxSydney, harnessing some of the event’s keenest minds to help shape hotels of the future.

The forward thinking hotel group will once again lead the way in the sector by hosting an innovative workshop on the future of human interaction during hotel stays, asking how guests would best interact and connect with their fellow travellers, other guests, on site teams and their loved ones back at home.

The findings will help build a complete picture for TFE Hotels, who last year hosted a workshop with TEDxSydney audience members to glean insights into what the traveller of the future wants to see in their hotel experience, covering topics of better technology and authentic, tailored experiences. The results will inform how it designs and redesigns Vibe Hotels around Australia.

In addition to the workshop, TFE Hotels will be bringing the talks and bold ideas of TEDxSydney to those unable to attend the event live at ICC Sydney Darling Harbour. Vibe Hotel Rushcutters Bay and Vibe Hotel Canberra Airport are both hosting live events for interested guests and locals, live streaming the talks into designated viewing rooms at both hotels, providing attendees the perfect opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals.

The satellite event at Vibe Rushcutters Bay will also stimulate brains with guest speaker Tashi Dorjee from TwoSpace – a Sydney start-up that turns unused restaurant spaces into fun co-working spaces – and a social networking event which will match attendees with shared interests over a complimentary beer or wine. These additions sit perfectly alongside TED’s mission of sharing great ideas and are an excellent match for Vibe Hotels; a brand which has lifestyle and connectivity at its core.
