CheckMate

Anthony Maggio has spent most of his career finding ways to improve customer experiences.

As frequent business travelers, Maggio and his CheckMate co-founders, Drew Patterson and Brian McManus, observed that the hospitality industry lagged behind others in the travel sector, particularly car rentals and airlines, when it came to early adoption of mobile technology. Together they set out to bring innovative, mobile, customer experiences to the hotel industry. 
Mr. Maggio is responsible for product management and customer success. Prior to co-founding CheckMate, Maggio started a new form of travel agency for Jetsetter, using the insight of experienced travel writers to develop and organize custom trips for the site's members.

As the strategic projects leader at Jetsetter, he expanded the company into media sales and lead generation for high-end travel providers. Early in his career, Mr. Maggio was a business technology analyst at Deloitte Consulting where he spent 80 percent of his time living out of hotel rooms and gaining important insight into their operations.

Mr. Maggio is a University of Pennsylvania alumnus, with a degree in Political Science.

Hotel Spa: Measuring the Results
As the Hotel Spa and Wellness Movement continues to flourish, spa operations are seeking new and innovative ways to expand their menu of services to attract even more people to their facilities, and to and measure the results of spa treatments. Whether itís spa, fitness, wellness meet guest expectations. Among new developments, there seems to be a growing emphasis on science to define or beauty services, guests are becoming increasingly careful about what they ingest, inhale or put on their skin, and they are requesting scientific data on the treatments they receive. They are open to exploring the benefits of alternative therapies Ė like brain fitness exercises, electro-magnetic treatments, and chromotherapy Ė but only if they have been validated scientifically. Similarly, some spas are integrating select medical services and procedures into their operations, continuing the convergence of hotel spas with the medical world. Parents are also increasingly concerned about the health and well-being of their children and are willing to devote time and money to overcome their poor diets, constant stress, and hours spent hunched over computer, tablet and smartphone screens. Parents are investing in wellness-centric family vacations; yoga and massage for kids; mindfulness and meditation classes; and healthy, locally sourced, organic food. For hotel spas, this trend represents a significant area for future growth. Other trends include the proliferation of Wellness Festivals which celebrate health and well-being, and position hotel spas front and center. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
