About Us

ABOUT OUR CONFERENCE

Hong Kong is one of the top tourist destinations in the world, with well-established hotels that enjoy one of the highest RevPARs across Asia-Pacific.

Yet, Hong Kong and Macau hotels have been facing headwinds since 2015. Externally, the slow-down of Chinese economy and global uncertainties are taking hits. Meanwhile, internally, political tension and resultant actions have depreciated the city’s goodwill with international tourists. Together with new hotel supply, competition is intense. Hoteliers are propelled to redouble their efforts in demand creation, revenue generation and cost control in order to drive gross operating profit (GOP), and create an acceptable return on investments (ROI) for hotel investors.

The leading conference in Greater China that directly addresses all operational/management challenges, Hotel Management Asia Summit provides a platform for hotel executives from both corporate level and property level to discuss key operational, branding and financial issues directly impacting corporate and property P&L.

Hot Debate: Traditional Hotel Business Model will Survive the Travelers of New Age

 

Some say that there will always be demand and expectation for elaborated, high-touch luxury services, with multiple amenities housed under one roof. Others propose that a leaner structure and more efficient operation is the way forward. Some propose that hotels should command higher pricing for the ancillary services, such as F&B and spa, due to the perceived “class” or glamour. Others suggest that having competitive pricing comparable to those of independent operators does provide better profitability overall. Some reckon that developing a 200 room luxury hotel and developing a 600 room mid-scale one could be equally feasible in certain locations, but is that really the case in the long run? What do modern day travellers really want and do hotels need to revamp their business models to ensure competitiveness?
