Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: "We are extremely proud to establish Radisson in Russia, and with this, further strengthening our position as the leading international hotel group in the region. This signing brings our Russian portfolio up to a total of 39 hotels and 10,000+ rooms in operation or under development."

Radisson Hotel Gorizont Rostov-on-Don will be a convenient location for Russian and foreign partners, as well as guests of the city. This will bring Gorizont Mall to a fundamentally new level with even greater comfort and unique atmosphere."

The hotel will offer 173 rooms and suites with a Scandinavian inspired design, an all-day restaurant and lobby lounge bar, as well as a gym, a conference hall and various meeting rooms.

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
