John Bollen - Bollen is the senior vice president and digital marketing officer for MGM Resorts Intl.
Sanjay Rama - Rama is a principal with JHM Hotels and the panel's youngest "change facilitator."
Plans for discussion topics are already in the works, including: whether Internet should be free for guests; the necessity of phones in guestrooms with the growth of BYOD; where the next IT leaders will come from; dangers to cloud computing; best practices for vendors during a pitch; changes to consumer behavior in the coming years; plus much more.
