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.

Guest Service: First Impressions Matter

Hotels spend large amounts of money on marketing their operation and brand, but sometimes they fail to remember that guest service is the lifeblood of their business. It is outstanding guest service that allows a hotel to create an amazing and lasting impression, one that will remain with guests far beyond the duration of their stay. In pre-internet days, first impressions were formed the moment a guest walked through a hotel's front door. These days, first impressions are created long before a guest arrives at a hotel property. They begin when a customer visits a hotel's website or social media pages for the first time. When a guest connects with a property online, they immediately form an opinion of the hotel. First impressions matter and because of that, a hotel website should be mobile-friendly with blistering fast speed; it should be graphically appealing; and it should provide visual representation of the kind of experience a guest can expect. It is also vital to engage the customer; to actively solicit and respond to guest feedback. When a hotel personally engages with someone, it is demonstrating to other customers that guest opinions matter, and that management is willing to go the extra mile to provide superior guest service. Similarly, when a hotel sends out personalized emails with satisfaction surveys attached, it demonstrates that management values guest feedback, so that service can be improved at every level. Additionally, social media messages can be sent out prior to a guest's arrival to learn more about them, so their visit can be personalized. It's the small touches and details that are most remembered and appreciated. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate excellent guest service in their operations.
