Over the past many months, we’ve been showing how COVID-19 has been affecting the hospitality industry. Sadly, it has become very apparent that pandemic concerns will continue to be a factor in 2021. As the industry forecasts how to move into the new year, trends indicate seven different areas of hospitality are being adjusted to offset a variety of challenges according to an article on Linchpinseo.com.
Beginning with technology innovations, hotels are starting to utilize electronic check-ins. This can help avoid spending time at the front desk where there is potential for exposure to the virus from the masses of people that pass through that area daily.
With all the travel concerns in general, maintaining a business’ positive reputation has become a high priority. Hotels are branching out and using social media more often now to generate interest in their properties and creatively attract new guests.
As cleanliness becomes the new “currency” for making travel decisions, hospitality companies are having to increase their staff. Retaining and finding new talent is now essential throughout this industry with a long-standing reputation for high turnover.
International travel has been increasing year after year for the last decade, until recently with the shutdown requirements in 2020. When people are feeling more secure and willing to reschedule trips across the globe, hotels will benefit from immersing their staff in cultural education to enhance their guest’s experience.
Increased competition across the board has caused the hospitality industry to find unique ways to personalize travel and lodging experiences. Brainstorming memorable guest activities and other events may make all the difference in whether a guest chooses their property or is willing to return at a later date.
Airbnb had previously been a major competitor due to significant price differences. However, incidents of robbery and property damage, along with COVID concerns, have prompted guests to consider returning to a hotel environment rather than utilizing a home during travel. Hotels are addressing these concerns by re-examining and promoting their security and safety policies .
Finally, loyalty programs are being revamped to retain and grow their guest base. For vacationers that don’t have a particular travel style, a loyalty program could be the one thing that keeps them coming back and choosing their hotel time and time again, regardless of the destination.
