Compared to conventional methods that require countless meetings to establish a detailed plan, Scrum set goals and let the team find the best solutions for tackling the problem. …

Loyal guests are essential for every hotel: they stay at your property more often, try new products and services, and are also much more likely to recommend their experiences to their friends and family.

Improving the number of repeat guests is a common goal for hoteliers and although attracting new clients is crucial for growth and development, increasing repeat guests ensures you build a solid customer base.

With many options to choose from, travelers only return to a hotel if they have their expectations met or even exceeded. Of course, this is easier said than done. But when you make…

On 4 March 2019 something monumental happened(1) — for only the second time since the global pandemic began, a person was cured of the virus. There are two current global pandemics, one is COVID-19, the other is H.I.V. Aids — one has been around since 1980, the other since 2020. The news came nearly to the day, 12 years after the previous successful cure. Two people cured, 39 million deceased and forty years on. The idea that we will have a cure to this terrible Coronavirus in the next weeks and months let alone years is unlikely. That said, it…

Nowadays, a large number of active internet users worldwide are young people, ranging in age from 18 to 34. Things are not so much different in the hospitality industry, where this group represents an important percentage of the total guests. Because of the hospitality sector’s competitive nature, hoteliers cannot just rely on general advertisement without a strategy because it has little effect on this audience. There must be a specific approach to make sure to pique their interest. One word of advice before we jump into polishing up your digital presence: it is nearly impossible to reach a younger audience…

Imagine having spent months and months planning a trip to the hottest big city you have always loved — from afar — only to realize that, once there, you feel no connection to it. Sometimes, our anticipation dictates the image in our head which we have about a destination. And sometimes we get so excited about a trip that we get giddy and cannot wait to arrive — only to be buried in crowds of people, surrounded by grey meaningless buildings. A feeling starts to grow in you that this is not the right place for you after all. You…

How many times have you traveled to a far-off destination to visit a sight, just to find that the crowds there made it impossible to enjoy it? It is quite disappointing when we plan a trip and cannot get the best out of it because everybody wants to go to the same spot at the same time as we as tourists always want the most stellar experiences.

But this does not mean that we should stop travelling or expect less from the destinations we visit. On the contrary, traveling stimulates economic growth and should be encouraged. However, have you ever…

Tourism Carrying Capacity — or TCC — describes the number of people that a given destination can manage without negative impacts on the environment, in terms of culture or economy. It is easy to assume that it is related only to the number of available rooms in a hotel, bed & breakfast, or guesthouse, but in actuality, it is much more complex. When tourists go on vacation, besides staying at their hotel, they go see the sights, use public and private transportation, and they buy in local stores, which all have their own carrying capacity which factors into the total…

In the wake of the last decade’s economic and technological developments in air transportation, travelling to distant places has not only become easier, but it is also cheaper than ever and new fuel-efficient airplane engines are likely to make this tendency grow even more. In 2016, for example, 1.23 billion people leisurely travelled to countries where they did not live according to the World Tourism Organization.

As a result of this growth in tourism, some destinations receive massive numbers of visitors each year. …

Imagine you are far away from home, in a country you have never visited before, surrounded by strangers–and yet, you feel welcome, knowing you have a comfortable and secure place to return to. That is the original idea of hospitality, and it has remained unchanged for centuries. With the inception of new technologies and innovative concepts, hotels have become a more convenient and easy experience and are now more customizable than ever.

The ability to adjust the hotel room environment in accordance with each traveler’s personal preferences has enhanced a guest’s staying experience and makes them more likely to return…
