FreshAir Reduces Monthly Fees for Hospitality Clients Through December 2020

FreshAir Extends Fee Reduction Due to Impact of Covid-19

USA, Lebanon, New Hampshire. July 30, 2020

FreshAir, an industry leader in the development of sensors to detect and alert for hazardous chemicals, announces its plan to reduce monthly fees for hospitality clients through December 2020. The company will also extend this monthly fee reduction to hotel properties which install FreshAir Sensor devices during this period.

In March, FreshAir announced a complete monthly fee waiver for its hospitality clients through 30 June 2020 and continued to provide its novel 24x7 smoking detection and monitoring service for tobacco and marijuana smoke during this period.

"We are excited to hear that many of our hotel clients who closed have started reopening," said Jack O'Toole, founder and president of FreshAir. "Occupancy rates are showing promising increases, as domestic travel starts to rebound. Even with these encouraging signs, we understand that the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to have an impact on the hospitality industry beyond June and decided to extend additional support."

For clients who pay monthly, subscriptions will reflect this discount automatically starting in July. For clients who pay annually, this additional credit will be applied towards the next payment.

"Cleanliness and safety in hotel rooms and properties are now more important than ever to maintain guest satisfaction and overall profitability," said O'Toole. "FreshAir remains committed to helping hoteliers operate cleaner, healthier, and safer environments for their guests and staff."

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.
