Timothy Palmer Joins Fairmont Royal Pavilion as Executive Chef

Barbados, Bridgetown. March 25, 2020

Fairmont Royal Pavilion, Barbados is pleased to announce Timothy Palmer has been appointed Executive Chef of Fairmont Royal Pavilion effective February 6th 2020. As the new Executive Chef, Timothy will oversee the culinary operations of Fairmont Royal Pavilion's three restaurants and in-room dining.

Tim as he is affectionately called, brings 20 years of progressive experience in the Food & Beverage industry predominantly with the Fairmont Brand where he started his career in hospitality with Fairmont Jasper Lodge in 2000.

Tim gained his Caribbean hospitality experience when he returned to the Fairmont Brand in 2007, this time with Fairmont Southampton Princess in Bermuda where he worked until 2010. Again, in order to further develop his career, Tim moved to Fairmont Royal York from 2010 for two years and then Executive Chef at Fairmont Winnipeg where under his stewardship, the flagship restaurant VG has won AAA 4-Diamond Award for 4 years consecutively from 2016 to 2019.

"I am really excited about my new journey in Barbados. I am eager about learning more about the bold flavours and local ingredients of Barbados and the Caribbean and infusing those flavours and local produce with fun innovative techniques such as molecular gastronomy. There is a lot of potential with the restaurants at Fairmont Royal Pavilion and with my Barbadian team, I want to make our three restaurants the hottest spots on the West Coast to dine" said Timothy Palmer, the new Executive Chef of Fairmont Royal Pavilion.

We welcome Tim to Barbados and the Fairmont Royal Pavilion team and we look forward to creating and achieving lifelong culinary experiences for all our guests.

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.
