HVS Market Pulse - Cincinnati

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the regional economy has been severe across all traditional lodging demand segments. Within the corporate segment, demand declined significantly as most of the region’s largest employers eliminated corporate travel in 2020.

Innovation: Embracing Complexity And Contradictions (Frédéric Delley)

Innovation is the process of creating value through the implementation of new ideas. Crises generate the exact opposite outcome: tremendous value destruction. Innovation, therefore, seems particularly well-suited to act as a powerful countervailing force in times of hardship. The process of innovation under stable conditions, while not straightforward, is relatively well understood.

Building Bleisure With Outdoor Office Pods

Remote work is here to stay. Even if companies start to require teams to return to a central office following full population vaccination, the benefits of allowing for flexible work conditions are too good to ignore. For the employer it can mean vastly reduced rental costs, while for the employee it means less time spent commuting and the ability to handle life’s other responsibilities more adeptly like young kids. But the drawback is the monotony of working, eating, relaxing and sleeping in the same place.

Cancellations Rates: Where Do They Stand And How Can You Overcome Them?

Hotel cancellation rates have been steadily rising for years, in part fueled by a culture of ‘book now, pay later’ created by OTA giants. Covid did not create cancellation habits – it will perpetuate them, though. As a hotelier, it’s important for you to be aware of the patterns because it will help you to determine how to combat the issue. Back in 2019, D-Edge Hospitality Solutions reported that the global cancellation rate of hotel reservations reached 40% (with the direct website channel keeping the lowest cancellation rate).

HVS Market Pulse – South Dallas, Texas

The industrial sector is a key player within southern Dallas County and northern Ellis County, which are part of the Best Southwest Partnership. A vast network of roads in the greater Metroplex provide direct access to other parts of the region and country.

This area hosts over 17,000 workers, and major manufacturing tenants include American Textile Company, Pioneer Frozen Foods, Niagara Bottling, and Serta Dormae. Corporations with logistics/distribution facilities in the IIPOD include Amazon, Conn’s, The Home Depot, L’Oréal, and National Tire & Battery.

Life After Lockdown - How Vaccines are Changing Travel and Consumer Behavior

For much of 2020, ‘normalcy’ became a decent memory. The past 16 months have been defined by adjustments, both big and small, that pushed the pandemic response forward towards a finish line we couldn’t yet see. We made sacrifices, we stayed home, and we canceled trips in the hopes that the coming months would bring long-awaited relief, recovery, and, finally, a return to normal. Fortunately, with the help of vaccine roll-outs around the world, we finally find ourselves on the precipice of recovery.
