4 Things Related to Hospitality That Will Be Trending This Year

The new normal lifestyle is now increasingly spreading to various lines of life, including the hotel sector. This business must encourage itself to start adapting and take advantage of existing opportunities, such as technology to again increase revenue and sustainable profit performance. Regarding this adjustment, several things are expected to become hospitality trends in 2022, reported by Hospitality Net, Monday ( 10/1/2022).4 things related to hospitality that will be trending in 2022:

1. Workcation The trend of workcations or guest activities that combine vacations and business trips has become popular during the pandemic. Having another name, namely bleisure, this trend is fully expected to continue throughout 2022. Of course, it opens up great opportunities for the hotel business to continue to improve additional services so that hotel guests can stay longer.

2. Team collaboration The hotel team, especially in the areas of distribution, revenue, and marketing managers, must start collaborating to bring the hotel back up again. These three departments have become more responsible than before the pandemic, with pressure to increase RevPAR. RevPAR is a hospitality term that is the result of calculating the overall revenue from room sales divided by the number of rooms available in a hotel. This may also be due to the expansion of services offered by distribution channels, such as Google. Therefore, hotels are now taking the initiative to combine the three elements above.

3. Metasearch Metasearch is defined as an online information search tool using data from search engines to generate its results. In this case, Google is one of the metasearch. Experts predict that in 2022, Google's metasearch will make great strides to level its position with online travel agents (OTA). Google is significantly expanding the hotel industry offerings so hoteliers must have experienced people to manage metasearch if they are to be successful at delivering a return on investment. However, it is also estimated that not all parties who participate in using metasearch will be able to survive in the competition. In addition, it is also predicted that there will be more merger and acquisition efforts on this platform.

 4. Online Travel Agent (OTA) With the development of technology, hotel needs will also shift to mobile devices through travel applications or online travel agents (OTA). It was recorded that in the summer of 2021, cellular contributed to all revenue by 60 percent and mobile traffic entered recorded is 77 percent. This growth is known to be unprecedented and is expected to continue and can be leveraged by hotels and initiate technology investments. Not only that, the demand for OTA services to promote hotels in the main feeder market will also increase. Therefore, hotels are likely to pay more commissions than they did in 2019. But this is comparable to the capabilities offered by OTAs, for example being able to help hotels segment the audience they want to target. Another offer provided is the freedom of access to track competitors' rates and their performance as a comparison and reference for improvement, meanwhile, the 5 Most Beautiful Hotels in Bali that are Very Instagramable
