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.

Mobile Technology: Meeting Tech Expectations

What once seemed futuristic is now the norm, owing to the escalating developments in mobile technology, and hotels must continue to innovate in order to meet guest expectations. In a recent study from Mower, 65 percent of guests said they would gladly pay more for a hotel that provides the mobile technology they deem essential. The same study shows that 44 percent of travelers are more likely to book a smart hotel, and nearly 7 in 10 want to use smart devices provided by the hotel. And how do guests wish to use all this technology? A majority expressed a desire for mobile check-in and check-out, and mobile payment options. They also want to be able to stream content from their phone to the TV; to make service requests of the hotel staff; to control in-room lighting, temperature and sound; to order food and beverages; and to request a wake-up call - all from their mobile device. Guests also expressed preferences for robust wi-fi and convenient device charging ports throughout the hotel. They also appreciate the use of hotel branded apps which allow a guest to book a room, access loyalty programs, receive discounts and rewards, and even use the app to choose the room, floor and view they prefer. Some hotel apps also allow a customer to track their charges throughout their stay, rather than waiting to receive a bill at the end. Finally, mobile tech lounges are popping up more frequently in some hotels. These lounges offer guests the opportunity to perform tasks like airline check-ins or access to local info guides, but they also provide a place where guests can comfortably get some work done outside their room. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to meet their customers' expectations in the mobile technology space.
