Webinar Wrap-Up: Tailored and Targeted: Reaching Desired Guest Segments

Smart hotels know where their business is coming from, and focus their efforts on delivering the stories that most appeal to their target audience.

For many hotels, that means gaining a deep understanding of the Corporate Traveler, and how to showcase the stories necessary to appeal to this lucrative travel segment.

In our latest webinar, Tailored and Targeted: Reaching Desired Guest Segments, we zeroed in on a few crucial elements to help hoteliers identify how to successfully target and engage the corporate traveler. We also covered some best practice tips for straddling the “Bleisure” market, you know – when your weekday business traveler decides to stay over for weekend fun and relaxation!
