Up & Down, Up & Cross

Dear Insiders,
The waves of news in the office are subsiding, the number of people talking into their smartphones out of their deck chairs is increasing... Therefore, with this edition, we want to say goodbye and head off into our two-week summer break.
However, before doing so, we cast a glance at Vienna, where the expected flood of beds around the new central station is already under fierce discussion. A respective low tide will occur at Vienna Westbahnhof. The real estate prices at the central station are increasing, but mainly budget and middle-class hotels will be located there. People are therefore asking themselves in Vienna, who will still be able to earn money at all: today, the 5-star rates are scandalizing low and leading brands are incessantly spiralling downwards.
Italy's tourism and hotel industry is hoping for an upswing. The parliament decided to offer tax credits for renovations and conversions, amongst others. The first half of 2014 provided the Italian hotel industry with a roller coaster of emotions: the foreign demand was the only stable figure.
When a spa has lost its initial opening glamour and everyday life sets in, the revenue often stagnates. Then, the up and cross-selling activities have to be increased. How to discreetly induce the demanding guest to book spontaneously and in advance: Spa consultant Dagmar Rizzato, member of the editorial expert team, provides tips and examples.
From my conversation with Dagmar Rizzato, the idea arose to convey exactly this subject to hoteliers, their spa or marketing directors in a one-day workshop. Save the date: Friday, November 14, 2014! I will provide you with further details after our summer break.
Today's reports: Design Hotels, IHG, Hyatt, and Meliá published their half-year figures. Moreover, we are presenting several studies describing the Germans' never ending willingness to travel and spend money, the Americans' reserve to go on their own vacations, the continued low interest in smartwatches and fitness wristbands, and the consumers' revulsion of sponsored content.
Concerning the last subject, everybody should love hospitalityInside. Starting August 25, we will be on duty again in our office.
Then, the final spurt for the Expo Real registrations will start! Drees & Sommer decided to join the joint stand of "World of Hospitality" as 20th co-exhibitor. For the first time, a business is contributing an extra hospitality accent even though it has its own large stand at the trade show.
We wish you all a good time with family and friends – and a successful summer season!
