HMA Annual Debate

It is no secret that hotel brochures have became less relevant as websites have got more sophisticated and interactive and emailings have played their part by providing potential customers with an electronic flow of marketing information. On-line videos and third-party agencies such as LateRooms have contributed by encouraging customers to shop around on-line, rather than going the traditional route of requesting a brochure.


The Changing Face of Hospitality Imagery

Getting the imagery right is so important in marketing campaigns especially when there are so many different mediums available. In a world of social media and use of mobile devices to make purchases, how can we make sure we are using the right methods to get our message across multi media channels effectively? This lively panel discussion is led by a team of experts in their particular fields. They will be discussing how the use of imagery has changed, how to create compelling video content, how to distribute via email, social media and advertising and how to optimise for mobile communications to ensure greater brand awareness and ultimately boost the bottom line.
