Adventure travel done differently – G Adventures a global success with Brian Young – Managing Director, EMEA at G Adventures

The world of Travel & Tourism today is very different from how it was over three decades ago, with the internet only just starting to have a big impact in the world by the mid 1990s. There have been several factors that have brought huge changes within this industry including greater access to technology and therefore more information, and rising levels of disposable income. For much of the past most tourists were generally fairly conservative about the style of holidays they took, and relied on travel agents to design standard holidays for them such as a week in a resort near...

Resort Management in a World of Diversity with José Luis Mella – Resorts Operations Director, VRI Europe

The way people choose to travel, the destinations they are deciding to visit and the expectations they have of the accomodation they stay in are in a significant state of change. Of course the situation in the Travel & Tourism sector has always been evolving, as technology, demands and aspirations have adapted, but there has been somewhat of a revolution in recent decades. Travellers are now designing their own holidays and becoming more adventurous in terms of where they choose to travel and what they want to do on their holidays. This represents a big difference from the average traveller...

Why Your Brand Needs Opinion Mining

With the increasingly significant digital revolution that has taken place in recent years, there are undoubtedly a whole host of new opportunities for brands to reach their customers.

Two important ways your Timeshare resort sales team should be using social media

Like it or not, social media has grown massively in the last decade and is here to stay. It is becoming an increasingly important medium in which people communicate, discover entertainment, and find out about products and brands, and this is very much true within the travel and timeshare industry. For some resorts this is a relatively new concept, with their bosses still viewing social media as a waste of time and even banning it within the workplace. This is a huge wasted opportunity though in terms of engaging with guests, advertising your resort and increasing bookings. Instead it is vital...

You only have to look at the astronomical rise of Snapchat which in a few short years has gone from an obscure messaging app, to one of the most widely recognised and used forms of social media in the world! Social Media is not just...

Why now is the right time for action at this year’s conference RDO9

“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life”. This famous quote by Samuel Johnson, the celebrated 18th Century writer seems as relevant today as when Johnson originally coined it. While there is certainly a huge amount of celebrated and protected historical architecture, London is a city that is constantly changing and developing. Thus we will be returning to the Pestana Chelsea Bridge Hotel and Spa (12th & 13th September) for this year’s conference RDO9. A willingness to change is one of the keys for success, not just for modern metropolises such as London, but also businesses and industries that...
