Hotel Advertising: the Rise of Display in the World of Meta

A New White Paper Released by D-Edge Hospitality Solutions.

France, Paris. July 08, 2020

D-EDGE circulated a White Paper in 2017 that revealed the significance and importance of Metasearch in the hotel room sales. Today, D-EDGE publishes a new report that analyses, not only the canonical metasearch platforms but also all those advertising channels that contribute to hotels' direct revenue.

In this study, based on a fixed pool of 954 properties worldwide using D-EDGE Digital media solutions over the last eight years (2012 - 2019), some major trends and patterns appear clearly as indicated below:

● Bookings generated by ad-driven campaigns increased by 200% from 2013 to 2019.

● Google Hotel Ads is now the largest metasearch channel in terms of the number of clicks and number of hotel bookings; it earns 57% of all metasearch bookings.

● Bookings from metasearch remain the largest ad-driven booking channel.

But the most striking result is by Display Advertising, one of the latest digital media techniques: it now generates 31% of ad-based bookings, overtaking branded search as illustrated in the gif.

As hoteliers are, more than ever, looking at optimising their digital marketing campaigns, it is crucial that they base their strategy on facts rather than on popular belief or past best practices. In this report, they will find a complete, up-to-date analysis on the performance of the different Digital Media used by hotels (display advertising, Metasearch, Search) in terms of Volume of reservations generated, acquisition costs and return on ad spend.

The report is available on D-EDGE Website in English, Czech French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

Hotel Group Meetings: Spirit of Innovation


Naturally, the Hotel Group Meeting business has been rocked during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the effects may be felt for years to come. But according to planners, there is pent-up demand for hotels to resume this area of their business and savvy hoteliers are being exceptionally creative in making that possible. The key is successfully implementing all recommended safety guidelines. For example, in addition to social and physical distancing, some planners are utilizing assigned seating as a way to keep people from using multiple seats and tables throughout an event. Some planners have also initiated a color-coded bracelet system that indicates the wearer's confidence level about being physically approached. Hybrid meetings are also increasingly popular, where some attendees join in person and others are looped in virtually. Other hotels have instituted a "bubble" approach, dedicating an entire wing to smaller groups, essentially walling them off from any health risks outside their area. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to address these concerns so that the group meeting business can safely resume.
