USA, Chicago, Illinois. August 05, 2019

Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with CES Pirie Hotel (SA) Pty Ltd., an entity wholly owned by Chip Eng Seng Corporation Limited, to develop a new Hyatt Regency in Adelaide. The new 295-room hotel will mark the return of a Hyatt branded hotel to Adelaide, continuing Hyatt's expansion in Australia. With construction planned to commence in early 2020, Hyatt Regency Adelaide is expected to open in early 2023.

The Hyatt Regency brand offers a stress-free environment for event, leisure and business travelers alike to enjoy a productive and energized experience. Guests can enjoy a seamless and intuitive service alongside refreshing food and beverage concepts and flexible spaces suited for work, collaboration or relaxation.

"We are grateful to work with CES Pirie Hotel on the opening of the new Hyatt Regency Adelaide and are excited to bring the Hyatt Regency brand, which has a strong legacy and following, back to this vibrant city," said David Udell, group president, Asia Pacific, Hyatt. "Located in Adelaide's city center, the hotel will provide guests with the tools to stay connected and benefit from the hotel's intuitive and personalized service."

Hyatt Regency Adelaide will be located on Pirie Street in the center of the city's central business district, giving guests unparalleled access to major corporate and government offices as well as shopping and dining venues. When completed, the hotel will offer facilities including more than 8,000 square feet (750 square meters) of event space, a Market Café, a Regency Club, swimming pool, fitness facilities and a rooftop bar.

"The development of the new Hyatt Regency Adelaide will mark an important re-entry into Adelaide for the brand and also fill a key gap in Hyatt's domestic Australian network," said Monika Dubaj, vice president real estate and development, Asia-Pacific, Hyatt. "The hotel is part of our strategy to provide more offerings to travelers as we expand in Australia, with new destinations such as Adelaide and Brisbane that will complement our current portfolio of seven hotels in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra."

"Hyatt Regency Adelaide will add to Chip Eng Seng Corporation's strategic presence in Australia," said Mr. Raymond Chia, Executive Director and Group Chief Executive Officer, Chip Eng Seng Corporation. "We have selected Hyatt because of its established reputation and leadership in the hospitality industry. We will work closely with Hyatt to create a hotel which will become an excellent representation of all the elements that make the Hyatt Regency brand so successful over the decades."

Social Media: Social Listening Tools

The reach and influence of social media is staggering. Nearly 3 billion people use social media daily, posting a range of messages, selfies, images, and everything in-between. According to HubSpot, almost 4 million posts are uploaded to the major social networks every single minute! That's an astounding amount of content and it is crucial for hotels to skillfully use social media in order to effectively compete. From establishing a suitable brand identity and voice to creating content across all the major networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.), the goal is to actively engage consumers and to eventually convert them to customers. Some hotels are initiating online contests as a way to attract new customers, while others are rewarding customers with discounts who subscribe to the their email lists or follow their social media pages. Another recent strategy is to employ social media listening tools that track what people are posting online about their businesses. These tools allow hotels to monitor - or listen to - what's being said about a brand across the entire social web, and this can prove to be very valuable, unfiltered information. Social listening permits hotels to be aware of people's opinions about their business, industry or competitors, and some of these tools even listen beyond social media platforms. They also monitor publicly available information on blogs, forums, news outlets and websites. Some listening tools are more focused on gathering and analyzing data, while others offer more engagement-oriented features, which allow hotels to interact with people right from the platform. Often the information that is gleaned from these listening tools ends up being the most authentic, unbiased insights a business can get. The February Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to successfully integrate social media strategies into their operations.
