Maclean Events Launches SPATEC

. October 14, 2008

SEPTEMBER 28, 2006. Mclean Events has announced that the inaugural spa-based forum SPATEC UK and Europe will take place in Malta on 25-28 April 2007.

SPATEC aims to bring together more than 50 of the UK and Europe's most prominent spa, wellness and beauty operators alongside leading spa suppliers to facilitate one-to-one meetings over the course of two days.

The formula from other Mclean Events forums - such as SIBEC - will remain the same for SPATEC, while delegates will also have the opportunity to attend presentations from key speakers within the spa and beauty industry during the course of the event.

Confirmed attendees include Raison D'Etre, Celtic Manor, The Hurlingham Clinic and Spa (Medi Spa), Thalgo, Marriott, The Old Course and Danubius.

Gillie Turner from The Hurlingham Clinic said: "SPATEC is a great opportunity to meet with all the people we want to see in one place. Currently, we don't have a forum like this for the spa sector. I'd love to be able to discuss the way the market moves with other like-minded operators. A relaxed environment provides an ideal way to learn and create new business opportunities." Details:

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
