Industry News

Travelers are ditching beaten paths for alternative, under-the-radar destinations. Whether it’s due to a heightened awareness of the worrying effect overtourism is having on some of the world’s most visited places, or to simply wanting to unearth a destination that feels fresh, new, and unique to the discoverer,either way, travelers in 2023 will be flocking to hidden gems.

Sales and marketing needs to evolve to address the cultural depth luxury consumers now demand. The best hotels are moving beyond "heads-in-beds" marketing to creatively place brands in culture, catering thoughtfully to sub groups and interests. When done right, the resulting glow adds value to businesses owning their brands fully.
