Hotel Management Thailand Summit 2019

Leveraging Consumer-Centric Innovations to Drive Top Line Growth

“Hotels are increasingly challenged by emerging competitors and shifting customer demands and expectations; Airbnb being just one example of the former and Millennials of the latter. It is becoming clear that all of the ‘traditional’ players in hospitality will need to innovate in order to meet these challenges.”

- Carlos MARTIN-RIOS (PhD), Associate Professor, Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, EHL Switzerland in Hospitality Innovation Industry Report, May 2018

2019 will be a year of change for Thailand. General election aside, the country is slated to welcome an abundance of new hotel openings, including a range of brands that are making their debuts in the country. Brands with current presences are also launch new properties with their latest designs and amenities, adding to the competition in an already fiercely competitive market.

In order to differentiate and gain an upper hand in distribution, it is essential for hotels to leverage the latest consumer trends. From authentic local experiences to responsible social awareness, seamless technological engagements to wholesome wellness offerings, it is imperative for hoteliers to anticipate guests’ behaviors and match their lifestyles. Only those hoteliers who connect with their guests on the guests’ terms will prevail as the prime choices of accommodations.

A creativity-driven market, Thailand has welcomed some new boutique hotels with social, sustainable, wellness or local elements integrated into their concept designs and amenities. Yet, it remains for the traditional hotels and resorts to adapt and refine their product offerings.

Hotel Management Thailand Summit (HMT), a neutral one-stop strategy platform, will return to Bangkok on 26 April, 2019 to help hoteliers translate consumer trends into business opportunities. The summit will derive viable strategies and tactics from guests’ decision-maker process to positively impact corporate- and property-level P&L.

NEW Key Topics Covered:

  • Distinguishing product offerings with local touches
  • Enhancing brand positioning through leveraging CSR and social controversies that matter
  • Converting potential customers by seamless technological engagements
  • Enabling the perception of well-being through wellness integration
  • Delivering personalized services and promotions based on preferences and analytics

 

Hotel investment appetite remains robust in Asia Pacific. While the lack of prime assets for sales in developed markets has in a way constrained the transaction volume, hotel development pipelines across various markets have still seen steady growth in the past year.

Based on STR July 2018 data, a total of 370,700 hotel rooms were in construction in APAC, a 33.9% increase year-on-year and a 43.2% of the global number of rooms in construction, signifying the region’s position as the growth driver for the global hotel industry.

Yet, in developed markets, valuations are high, real estate is expensive, and acquisition opportunities are limited. This is forcing the hotel owners and investors to be savvy in choosing optimal investment opportunities, and also be proactive in asset management in order to generate the best ROIs.

As such, Questex Hospitality Group brings to you three concurrent events, covering the investment and asset management lifecycles for hotel and F&B investments and operations. These events will serve your needs to seek opportunities and drive return on investments, from hospitality assets across the region.
