Immersion Hospitality, Inc. (IHI) was created by experienced industry professionals as a result of the collaboration efforts of the many. The company was started in order to break free from corporate constraints to allow us to do what we KNOW needs to be done without the pressures of rapid growth, greed or answering to anyone other than the customers that we serve.
We learned early on that diligently serving our customers is what's responsible for their growth and success. We believe operations can flourish by seizing individuals who embrace and thrive on inspired thought. The bottom line is, without customers no company can stay in business and the leadership guiding the successful IHI vow never takes our eyes off of what makes us most effective: We are customer driven, flexible and are working to set the trends as opposed to following the leaders. We will never forget that we work for and answer directly to you, our valued customer or prospect and we will always keep your advocacy in mind for any project you may need us to accomplish on your behalf.
We boast an excitement for the cutting edge (R&D), a passion for the industry itself (professional services and project management) and a desire to be heard across all channels (internet updates and speaking engagements) and most of all, we are here to inspire great thoughts among individuals and companies who also believe “different” is something to be embraced and not repelled in today’s ever changing marketplace.
