What trends can help your hotel harness even more growth? It’s important to study trends because they can reveal what people’s interests and intentions are – and also what is happening right now. Major hotels brands stay tuned in and establish pilots related to trends to help them compete against the OTAs and 3rd party booking engines. Exploring trends provides ideas about how you might change things to move your property in the right direction and give you an advantage over the competition.


iResponze will be presenting Hospitality Trends to Watch Now at a free Lunch & Learn session on Tuesday, February 20 at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Charlotte Uptown hotel. This insightful presentation will feature a strategic take on what major brands such as Marriott, Hilton, & IHG are doing and industry trends to keep your eye on. Because hotel guests are sharing their experiences (and future customers are listening) we’ll also present our research about how to use online reviews for business intelligence.
