Tan’s panel, titled “Hospitality Rating Systems & Quality Assurance Standards,” is part of a full day’s agenda centered on specific challenges faced by the Asian hospitality industry and will take place from 10:00 – 10:45 AM.

The meeting in Singapore is just one in the series of ASIA Connect events held throughout the region; the conferences serve as learning and networking forums for hospitality professionals in mid-level and senior management positions throughout Asia. Sponsored by the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International’s (HSMAI) Asia-Pacific chapter, the meeting in Singapore will provide the organization’s membership the opportunity to interact with industry thought leaders and to discuss topics such as Managing in the Face of HR Challenges, New Media & Revenue Optimization Strategies and Destination Branding. Tan and his co-panelist, Shane O’Flaherty, Vice President of Quality Assurance at Mobil Travel Guide, will discuss hotel ratings systems, guest service and facility standards and “guest experience” and how international standards of excellence in the above topics translate in the Asian hospitality marketplace.

“We’re very excited to have Gary Tan participating in HSMAI’s Asia Connect meeting in Singapore,” remarked Dr. Judy Siguaw, who will moderate the panel and is also HSMAI APAC’s Founding Chapter President and Dean of the Cornell University–Nanyang Institute of Hospitality Management. “His depth of experience in the hospitality industry and his work with LRA in helping to define and measure guest experience standards and delivery both internationally and regionally will be of great interest to our members.”

Tan serves as a senior consultant in LRA’s Quality Assurance (QA) practice, which works with seven of the top ten hotel companies in the world. In all, LRA performs nearly 13,000 site visits and evaluations each year in more than 120 countries. On a personal level, Tan’s expertise spans the hospitality spectrum, with experience in the food & beverage, sales and marketing, rooms, event management and guest services divisions in both the cruise and hotel sectors. Prior to joining LRA, Tan worked for Star Cruises Singapore, the world’s third largest cruise operator, as well as the Oriental Hotel Singapore and the Holiday Inn Park View. He has a Higher Diploma in Hotel Management and Tourism from the Swiss Hotel Management School and speaks fluent English and Mandarin.

“The untapped potential of the Asian marketplace is intriguing in a number of industries, and hospitality is certainly no exception,” said John Roberto, LRA Senior Vice President and Managing Director of the firm’s QA practice. “We welcome the opportunity to help shape the dialogue around hotel standards and the ‘guest experience’ in the region.”
