Knowland Launches Regional Trends Snapshot

Begins to Set Group Standard

USA, Arlington, Virginia. October 07, 2019

Knowland, a hospitality industry leader in meetings market data and analytics for hotels, convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), convention centers and other meeting venues, today announced the launch of the Interactive Snapshot of Regional Trends to engage hoteliers in strategic, data-driven decision-making.

When it comes to making decisions about building or investing in hotel properties, owners and management companies rely on Knowland for group meetings intelligence on the landscape of their region and market. To provide a snapshot of Knowland's robust dataset, visitors to the Knowland website can interactively generate a data sample for different regions and gain a quick understanding of trends.

"Knowland has the largest proprietary database of intelligence on hotels and events which the hospitality industry can leverage for doing business directly with each other. Natural users of our data are property asset managers, management companies and owners, but we are finding more and more applications for our data including that of event planners. As the main source of meetings intelligence, we are starting to drive the industry standard for how to sell and evaluate group business," said Kristi White, VP Product Management.

With this Interactive Snapshot of Regional Trends, decision-makers have the ability to evaluate past performance for groups and meetings by group segments, event counts and chain scale. These trends can shed light on the ebb and flow of the groups and meetings space by region and inform future strategies. While this just scratches the surface on all the Knowland data available, it is an interactive way to showcase a sampling.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
