Spain, Parque Científico, Salamanca. March 23, 2020

As the hotel industry battles the global COVID-19 crisis, Beonprice ( www.beonprice.com ) is opening its online Academy for free to provide a training resource for hotel staff during the unprecedented period of low activity, preparing staff for when travel recommences.

Looking Forward

Whilst COVID-19 causes economic activity to suffer, Beonprice is encouraging hoteliers and their teams to look forward and start preparing for the future. Offering their support to the industry during the current difficult time, the Revenue Management System provider is working to ‘tool up' hoteliers so they and their teams are ready to rebuild the industry when the opportunity arises.

Beonprice's Commitment

By making Revenue Management training available to the sector for free, Beonprice shows its commitment to being a good travel companion for any journey hotels go on. Preparing for the future is key for hotel teams who are suffering low occupancies or closure during this time.

"This training will help build the culture of Revenue Management among professionals and organisations, working to increase the competitiveness of hotels when their doors reopen and strengthen teams' ability to recover when borders reopen and tourism returns," says Neville Isaac, Chief Customer Officer at Beonprice.

Beonprice Academy

The training is designed by Beonprice's team of Revenue Management experts and is aimed at improving processes, as well as embedding a culture of Revenue Management within organisations. It is available in English and Spanish.

The Basic Revenue Management Certification is designed for all levels of understanding, from Revenue professionals - who often don't have formal RM training - to related disciplines such as Marketing, Sales and Finance, as well as Hotel Managers and General Managers.

The online programme includes theoretical and practical content on basic concepts of Revenue Management, such as understanding KPIs, Benchmarking, Quality, Segmentation and Forecasting.

How to Register

The Basic Certification is available for free through the Academy's online training platform. The offer is open to anyone working in the hotel industry, as well as the wider tourism and hospitality sector, until further notice.

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
