Beyer Brown Survey Shows That an Increasing Number of Hoteliers Are Planning to Attend Industry Conferences

USA, Orlando, Florida. May 03, 2021

The results of a recent Beyer Brown survey of hospitality industry executives revealed that 75% of respondents said they are comfortable attending a professional conference with safety procedures in place within the next one to three months. Among that group, 43% said they are comfortable attending a similar event now. The survey, conducted by Orlando, FL-headquartered FF&E and OS&E procurement specialist Beyer Brown & Associates, included owners and developers, project managers, the design community and industry suppliers was taken during the period April 7 - April 20, 2021.

When asked which conferences they were planning to attend, the range of responses reflected the broad representation of those surveyed within specific hotel industry disciplines. They are as follows:

  • · BDNY (November 14-15) - 65%
  • · HD Expo (August 24-25) - 49%
  • · Lodging Conference (September 27-30) - 48%
  • · ALIS (July 26-28) - 34%
  • · Hunter Hotel Conference (May 10-12) - 22%

"These numbers are notably higher than the ones we obtained from a similar survey we conducted in July of last year, when only 58 percent of respondents said they would be comfortable attending a meeting in 3 months or more," Beyer Brown principals Mark Friesen and Shawn Bolivar said. "If we are confident in guests visiting hotel properties now, industry professionals should be equally confident in attending in-person events. Meetings are where deals get done and we look forward to meeting with our colleagues in the coming months."

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key

Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
