Industry Podcast Travel Market Life Launches Media Platform and First Event

United Kingdom, London. June 09, 2020

Travel Market Life, a new podcast for travel professionals, has launched with interviews from thought leaders across the industry's sectors to help businesses navigate the challenges as we rebound from Covid-19.

Launching with 15 episodes that cover a range of subjects from wholesale travel, hotel technology, travel supply and distribution, media, sales and marketing, Travel Market Life is now available on Youtube, Google Play, Deezer, Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

Travel professionals can also access a range of business travel programmes on the TravelMarket.Life portal with the aim to become an educational and inspiring resource for the sector.

Travel Market Life will also be hosting live events with the first beng the #HotelTechClinic A Covid-19 Recovery Masterclass. In partnership with Michael McCartan, industry stalwart for the travel technology sector, the #HotelTechClinic will see panelists who are all senior leaders within innovative technologies answer hotelier questions about how new tech can bring greater efficiency to the industry. The first event will cover robots, blockchain, contactless technologies, staff management systems and robotic process automation (RPA).

Hosted by Ryan Haynes, director of Haynes MarComs, a specialist travel and technology marketing communications consultant with over 15 years experience, TravelMarket.Life is seeking content contributions that can include podcasts, webinars, training programmes or events.

"We understand that with many staff furloughed it can be difficult to keep up with changes and developments that have been happening during lockdown and are continuing to evolve as a result of Covid-19. Therefore we want to help businesses be as prepared as they can be for the bounce back," said Ryan Haynes, host and founder of Travel Market Life. "Travel Market Life is designed as a community platform to be accessible to all global professionals to get help on how to approach the market. We have also designed our interviews to give inspiration to businesses and get an insight into business leaders' approach to decision-making. With this we hope we empower people to access new opportunities and be better able to engage and collaborate with the market."

TravelMarket.Life will continue in its second series with a technology focus, exploring some of the newer and more innovative aspects of technology as digital transformation is accelerated. TravelMarket.Life is welcoming applicants who would like to be guests on the programme.

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.
