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 Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
