Five Key Trends To Look Out For In The Hospitality Industry In 2023

Sustainability will be at the high on the agenda of the world of hospitality (and it cannot be brushed aside) from 2023 onwards, there’s also trending trends travelers are likely to encounter throughout the year. On the other hand personalization and technology will be a major topic in discussions with people who are involved, and we is likely to see it trickle into everyone at all levels.

In the past three years the tourism and travel sector has had time to think about and adjust to new strategies to keep a competitive edge as well as provide an unforgettable experience for clients. As the demand for travel continues to grow this year, there’s going to be a lot of pressure upon the hotel industry in order to keep and grow the number of the number of loyal customers.

Five trends you should keep in mind over the next 12 months and why it’s crucial to to to keep abreast of the latest developments:

1. A surge in the popularity of culinary tourism It has been a tradition for food to play a vital part in hospitality however, in 2023, it is expected to be able to live an entirely new life on its own. By 2032, the culinary tourism market is predicted to exceed US$4,530.9 billion, according the The Future Market Insights and an average annual growth of about 16.6 percent annually. In the end, people are looking for experiences more than ever before especially those of the millennial generation and Gen Z travelers. In addition new trends are being developed in the food industry. The catering industry isn’t just limited to foodies who love gourmet cuisine either- contemporary travelers are considering the consequences of their choices and the impact of their choices for vegetarians, vegans and flexitarians will see enormous popularity in tourism. From gluten-free alternatives to vegan-friendly staples and organic products, the kitchens of hotels need be ready to meet these specific needs of their guests.

2. An increase in bleisure travel Bleisure travel -i.e. leisure and business is a pattern that first emerged before the COVID-19 pandemic. The term “business trip” was used to describe a trip that employees took on to a few more days post-business events and turned out to be a cheaper method of arranging a getaway. While the pandemic cut off many business travel however, it seems to be returning and 2023 could be the year that leisure travel is increasing. This trend is booming the years prior to 2020, with travel websites noting an increase in bookings for these types of trips and soon became normal practice shortly before the outbreak. Hotels can benefit from it by tailoring their services to cater to the requirements and demands of this distinct segment. Because truth be told, there are many business issues that cannot be solved with Zoom.

3. The continuing popularity of bookings for short-term windows. According to the latest Pulse Report data from hotel software firm Duetto The short-term booking window is still robust, and will continue to be a challenge for hotels in 2023, from an operational and revenue standpoint. All over the world the booking rate drops at least three months after the departure date, with an eight to 12 week window for bookings remaining popular. This can be a positive thing. “Increasingly, a short-term booking window represents an opportunity to connect with a more mobile, more astute, and engaged traveler, switching seamlessly between business and leisureprofiles,” said Chris Crowley, Chief Revenue Officer at Duetto.

4. Traveling with a budget is becoming more affordable. With the bleak economic outlook for 2023 across all parts of the globe Travelers are not as keen on extravagant displays of wealth, and instead, preferring to budget their money wisely, however, without sacrificing quality. This is why the budget-friendly travel market is expected to grow. Hotels with limited or exclusive service must keep an check on rates, to ensure they capture a larger share of the market. One solution that will assist consumers achieve this is the Roomph application, which I’ve personally been involved in. I’m eagerly anticipating it being a success across Pakistan by 2023. In the meantime, we could look into expanding to other areas of Asia in the near future.

  1. The demand for digital services. Lastly, and most importantly the trend towards digital and contactless services is expected to take off in 2023. Hotels can get excellent online reviews by ensuring that the check-in mobile keys as well as processors that accept contactless payments are being monitored and maintained to avoid complaints. The advancement of technology is predicted to become the main focus of this industry by 2023. I am confident that we will witness more advances in this field, using artificial intelligence and automation that will improve efficiency within the hospitality industry in general.
