Planning events? Avon Data can help

From spring soirees and summer weddings to autumn conferences and Christmas parties, each season brings with it a flurry of events in the hospitality industry.

Today, providing an excellent standard of accommodation, food and service may not be enough. Securing a reputation as a successful and unique events venue on top is paramount to standing out in the market. And these days we’re all aware that an Instagram feed full of smiling faces and popping bottles makes for a fabulous marketing tool.

Events can prove a vital source of revenue through referral traffic as a result of happy couple who can’t stop talking about how fantastic their wedding was or the MD who was impressed with the efficiency and ease of planning a last-minute working lunch.

Hosting corporate events such as roundtables and Christmas parties are an effective way to attract a constant stream of professionals and repeat business travelers.

These examples highlight how events can be a valuable revenue generator and can be instrumental to setting your hotel apart from its competitors. But, let’s be honest, they can also be a headache.
