How to Guarantee Hotel Room Revenue during 2009 Recession
In light of recent economic news, how can hoteliers keep heads in beds next year without a monstrous marketing budget?
More good news: As many hotels currently depend on domestic visitors, fully seven out of 10 active travelers in the U.S. intend to take a trip during the next six months. This remains consistent with sentiments recorded in October 2007, according to the latest travelhorizons™ survey co-authored by the Travel Industry Association (TIA) and Ypartnership. Nearly half (48 percent) also stated that their travel plans for the next six months would not change as a result of turmoil in the financial markets.
"On the other hand, it's important for hoteliers to know that expanding to international markets guarantees greater occupancy, extended night stays and a higher ADR throughout the year, especially during times of economic turmoil," explains Uri Argov, President and CEO of Tourico Holidays. "When Japanese tourism is in low season, Italian tourism industry is in high season, and so on, providing hoteliers with a global base of customers year-round."
