Knowland Responds To Group Need From Smaller Properties With Limited Space, Unlimited Potential Package

By 22/01/2020No Comments

ARLINGTON, Va. – Knowland, the leader in group hospitality analytics for hotels, convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), conference centers and other meeting venues and the driver behind adopting a Proactive Group Sales Strategy today announced a new package for smaller hotels – Limited Space, Unlimited Potential. Designed for hotels with less than 6,000 square feet of total meeting space, this new package addresses the needs of smaller hotels – arming them with the tools to better compete for new group business.

“While Knowland currently serves this segment, the launch of SmartSearch, the most innovative, hospitality-focused search engine available today, made this package possible. It provides even greater value to our small hotel customers where sales staff is limited. It gives them another “set of hands” by making it easy to source and win “best-fit” groups based on the attributes of each hotel in the segment,” said Kristi White, VP of Product at Knowland.

With over 450,000 small events within the Knowland dataset, the SmartSearch engine allows smaller hotels to find and filter groups on catering needs, number of meeting days, estimated number of attendees, meeting space utilized, and much more. After identifying the right groups to prospect, SmartSearch further arms group sales teams with the relevant information about past events to turn their cold sales calls into warm conversations.

Knowland allows smaller hotels to hunt outside their traditional, local comp sets and to optimize revenue by booking group business sourced directly over costly third-party sources. No need to wait for an inbound RFP; they can engage planners before the RFP hits the streets. “We use our unparalleled data to support the entire industry and level the playing field for hotels with smaller event space but who do not always have the staffing to fill that space as effectively as they could be,” said Bob Post, CEO of Knowland.

The event was born out of a strong burden to offer support to hotel businesses and provide information and resources to stakeholders, owners and operators of hotel businesses in this challenging and demanding season.

The effect of the pandemic may be overwhelming but we feel that it is also a clarion call to all of us to rethink and innovate as such reposition our businesses to deliver more value to consumers in the hospitality industry.

The information provided in this conference will give you a head start to bounce back as you open your doors again. We reached out to our friends within the industry in other countries that are already recovering from the pandemic and they shared amazing insights with us. We had panelists from Doha, Kenya, Germany, etc. and from the feedback that we got, many people got a lot of value.
