Add-ons for any picnic include an additional half-dozen oysters; half-dozen shrimp; and caviar. Once guests are ready to ride, they can follow a map with various picturesque picnic locations on property to choose from or explore the 20,000-acre resort at leisure to find the perfect location. With a suggested three hours allotted per picnic, there is plenty of time for guests to pedal around, enjoy a delicious champagne-paired lunch and lounge on Montage branded picnic blankets.

With summer lingering until late September and fall right behind, this year-round destination offers plenty for guests to enjoy at Montage Palmetto Bluff. In addition to picnicking on property, guests can soak up the scenery of the Coastal Carolina marshlands, with salt and freshwater fishing, paddle boarding, water tubing, and more. They are also invited to explore the May River aboard the resort's exquisite yachts including scenic cruising, wine cruising, and Saturday morning mimosas on the restored century-old boat, named Grace. Or they can stroll through the Lowcountry guided by advice from the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy, whose team is involved in local research initiatives including dolphin research, Audubon bird surveys, and more.

Revenue Management: Maximizing Profit

Hotel Revenue Management continues to evolve at a blistering pace. Driven by technological innovation and new distribution channels, there are some dynamic opportunities for expansion in this fast-growing field. The technology is primarily designed to help revenue managers further refine their operations and pricing models to maximize hotel profit. For example, hotels can't be all things to all people, so a key strategy is to precisely identify their target audience. By employing geo-targeting techniques and analyzing behavior such as previous bookings, on-property purchases and online shopping practices, there is an increased capability to define guest demographics. By segmenting customers in more specific ways, hotels are able to create more personalized experiences which, in turn, allow managers to optimize their room rates. It is also an effective way to fulfill the unique needs and preferences of the individual. Another methodology is to consistently monitor the competition's pricing strategies. There are software tools that analyze a competitor's current rates, and then allow a hotel to make its own pricing adjustments. It is also a useful means to conduct forecasting models. Other technologies that are being integrated into a revenue manager's toolkit include Artificial Intelligence in the form of automated algorithms, and Voice Recognition (VR) for data inquiries, rate changes, and booking behavior. Predictive and analytic software programs are also being leveraged to provide more forward-looking data, instead of the usual reliance on historical performance. These metrics allow managers to be more proactive - rather than reactive - with their revenue strategy. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
