The Prognolite Ambassador Board

The Prognolite Ambassador Board is a body of experts from the hospitality industry. It advises Prognolite on strategy and the implementation of customer requirements in order to offer the greatest possible added value in the future. The main objective is to involve experts in the collaboration with customers and partners, to act as a source of ideas, as a contact person and as an advocate for AI topics in the hospitality industry. The board meets for regular exchanges, creating a space for discussion of current issues.

The Prognolite Ambassador Board works to improve market integrity, transparency and provides an institutionalized platform for dialogue among players in the foodservice industry.

The participants of the Ambassador Board also play an active role in events such as trade fairs or webtalks; on the one hand, in the thematic design, and on the other hand, in the context of discussion rounds and workshops.
