In 2022, Haussman was recognized as one of the top 100 Most Powerful People in Global Hospitality and the #1 Global Social Media Influencer in Hospitality. His podcast No Vacancy Live is the #1 podcast in hospitality. Additionally, in May 2022 he received the Leadership Excellence Award from SKAL USA for his work bringing the hotel industry together during the COVID crisis, while the podcast won a Davey Award.

Haussman is best known for educating and empowering professionals as a frequent keynote speaker, event host and moderator and custom content creator, and for his industry news site. Haussman also hosts Friday Night Audit, a comedy-based show capturing the energy of the post-conference social scene.

“This partnership provides us with the opportunity to broaden our content to deliver readers what they want and need to succeed in their businesses,” said Armin Molavi, CEO, Hotel Business. “It takes our already-successful Hot Topics platform and expands its reach so the valuable insights shared in each session can be, in turn, shared with a broader audience of hoteliers.”

“Glenn’s knowledge of and passion for the hospitality industry—and his dynamic personality—will bring energy and interest to these important hour-long discussions,” said Christina Trauthwein, VP, content & partnerships, Hotel Business. “He is respected, admired—and liked—by our colleagues and peers, and we’re thrilled to partner with him on our events.”

“Working with Hotel Business allows me to do what I love most, helping extend my No Vacancy branding while sharing amazing hospitality stories highlighting some of the most engaging professionals in our beloved business,” said Haussman, who first started his hospitality industry journalism career with Hotel Business back in 1996. “Having the opportunity to create this exciting partnership with the organization that got me started is such a fulfilling moment for me personally. I can’t wait to help create, facilitate and promote Hot Topics sessions.”

Both Hotel Business and No Vacancy will cross-promote each other on these collaborations.
