Accor to Acquire Mövenpick for $567 Million, Exploring Niche Markets in Hospitality, and 5 Signs It's Time to Change Your Hotel PMS

May 4, 2018 Kristina S. Park

Check out the reads we've collected for you this week!

There's excitement in the air for the hospitality industry this week! AccorHotels has had a busy few years in terms of acquisitions (remember when they purchased Fairmont Raffles Hotels International in 2016 for $2.7 billion USD?). Most recently, the company has announced that they are purchasing the Swiss-based Mövenpick Group for $567 million USD. Not only does this acquisition allow Accor to add 84 hotels with a strong presence in Europe and the Middle East to its portfolio, but it also solidifies the company's move into the luxury sphere of hotels. AccorHotels clearly means business as they pursue a leading role in the luxury hospitality, which you can read about in our first read. In this world of big hospitality players and online travel platforms, you would think it's nearly impossible for smaller players to have a chance. In our second read, see how hotels, big or small, can go after opportunities in the niche markets in hospitality. There's something out there for everyone - think wizard-themed hotels and guitar room service. Last but not least, hotel technology continues to play a major role in the industry, particularly when it comes to property management systems. Without an up-to-date PMS, it's difficult for a hotel to compete with continuously changing technology and an evolving industry. The third article highlights five signs that it may be time for your hotel to switch its PMS option. Plus, then you can access amazing industry-leading applications like the ones listed on the SnapShot Marketplace if you're using one of the many integrated PMS versions! (hint, hint) 

Happy reading.
