The hotel industry is undergoing significant changes:
- The use of mobile devices and apps to enable more personalized hotel guest services is an increasingly important trend.
- Mobile and social media marketing will revolutionize the industry via real-time promotions and presentations.
- Innovative technologies - such as mobile check-in ("seamless check-in"), use of mobile phones as room 'keys' and geo-marketing of services.
- The 'ownership' of the customer and customer data is becoming as critical since hotels require data to market to guests.
- Big Data and ownership of data is a primary driving force in the industry.
The ability of hotels to target customers, retain their patronage via loyalty programs while developing custom marketing and incentive programs is a key component of hotel services marketing.
