Subtitle/Summary: Hotels, Rentals and how hospitality is expanding to new territory

Greenwich, CT – Candice Georgiadis, owner of the blog by her namesake, interviews individuals on the cutting edge of hotel, travel, lifestyle and other similar topics. Her goal is to grow the reach and following of these individuals and companies.

The travel industry, and really the hospitality industry as a whole, is going through some major changes. Candice Georgiadis has been bringing these changes to light through published interviews with various industry experts. The changes have far outgrown the 'hotel' mindset of hospitality.

The rapid growth of the vacation rental market, something that was virtually non-existent just 15 years ago, while falling under the hospitality realm, does not typically offer much of any hospitality. We see Airbnb, Homeaway and others providing access to vacation properties across the globe.

Enter Brent Handler, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Inspirato, who is on the forefront of this industry shift. Taking this new growth in rental properties, but lack of an experience worth remembering, and combining it with the 'missing link' of the luxury experience of a resort launched Inspirato. “A managed and controlled luxury experience must be completely serviced and cared for by full-time trained hospitality professionals” commented Brian Handler during the interview.

Now vacationers aren't limited to either a rental or a resort option, but can have the best of both worlds, the freedom of a rental home (kitchen, multiple rooms and bathrooms, etc) along with the luxury of a resort (personalized attention, high quality furniture, etc).

You can read the whole interview over at Candice Georgiadis' website, but this excerpt sheds light on this new 'complete vacation package' that combines memorable experiences with at home comfort.

***
Can you share 5 examples of how travel and hospitality companies will be adjusting over the next five years to the new ways that consumers like to travel?

1. Experiential travel will continue to gain double digit market share vs. traditional hotel accommodations.

2. There is no stopping the sharing economy and millennials will eventually travel more than 50% of their nights in Airbnb-style residences.

3. The sharing economy will rapidly expand outside of homes and cars to experiences and other travel related services.

4. Brands will eventually play a role in alternate accommodations though they will be limited to the luxury end of the spectrum.

5. Chatbot travel advisory will continue to gain traction especially among younger and more affluent consumers.
***

Garrett Kenny, CEO of Feltrim Group, is another visionary property developer that has seen the proverbial writing on the wall and is keeping his company competitive and at the forefront of these industry changed.

“I think my latest project, Balmoral Resort, is a game-changer in the hospitality industry. It could revolutionize the family vacation. Opened in 2017 in Haines City, Florida, Balmoral combines the amenities and service of a hotel with the space and convenience of a rental home — and improves upon both concepts. This “horizontal hotel” comprises 230 individually owned vacation homes ranging in size from 3 to 8 bedrooms (that’s more rooms than in a 1000-room hotel). All the homes, which are furnished in a modern yet luxurious style, offer at least twice the space of a hotel room plus perks such as full kitchens, laundry rooms, free wi-fi, and in some homes, private pools.” – responded Garrett Kenny, CEO of Feltrim Group.

Candice Georgiadis continues to build the image and brand name of companies by highlighting their particular specialty and how they are making a positive impact to both vacation and business travelers.

“Real estate is no longer just about ‘location, location, location’. It’s about ‘experience, experience, experience’, and you’re seeing this across all property types and sectors. Hospitality does not just mean hotel anymore: the hospitality industry is impacting the office property sector, the residential property sector, and the retail property sector. Every retail location and retail operator is now focused on an experience-driven store. They hope to bring a new experience, a lively experience, to their location to attract people inside to compete with online shopping. For the office sector, firms like Knotel and WeWork have brought hospitality to the office world. You don’t just check-in at the security desk and take the elevator up to your office. You now have open floor spaces with ping-pong and pool tables, open kitchens, and social gathering spaces. In the residential sector, sought-after amenities include concierge services, dry cleaning services, different food and beverage outlets, and common areas inside residential lobbies. Hospitality is now inherently a driver for all real estate — and no longer isolated to just hotels. This is a fundamental shift.” – Candice Georgiadis while interviewing David Berg from Infinity Real Estate.

The above quote sums up the changes that are taking place right now in the industry and providers a view as to the future of the hospitality industry.

A GRAND CELEBRATION OF CHINESE WORSHIPPING ANCESTORS

April 7, 2019, The ceremony of worshipping the Yellow Emperor has already come into countdown stage, a scene of excitement will appear in Zhengzhou city.

ZHENGZHOU, CHINA, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A GRAND CELEBRATION OF CHINESE WORSHIPPING ANCESTORS

Every country has its own unique legends, so does China. As one of the representative figures of Chinese culture, the Yellow Emperor is regarded as the ancestor of Chinese civilization, who guided Chinese people from barbarism to civilized age.

Zhengzhou of Henan Province is the hometown of the Yellow Emperor. As one of the oldest cities in China, Zhengzhou is also a metropolis connecting Central China with the world. It has 8,000 years of Peiligang Culture, 5,000 years of Huangdi Culture and 2,700 years of Zhenghan Culture. Since the beginning of the 21st century, the annual grand ancestor worship ceremony, held in Zhengzhou to commemorate the Yellow Emperor, has become a holy tradition for billions of Chinese people to worship their ancestors.

For more than a decade, she has helped Zhengzhou to stand out and become the focus of overseas attention, attracting more than one million Chinese people from home and abroad who seek for their roots to visit this city: an important place of origin of Chinese culture and history.

The Yellow Emperor is the humanistic primogenitor of Chinese people. He is considered to be the first man to unify the Chinese nation and the forerunner of ancient civilization in China. He planted hundreds of grasses, created words, made clothing, built boats and carts, determined numbers and computation, set temperament, initiated medicine, and etc.. By legend, he is said to be the co-lord of Chinese people in ancient times and the head of the Five Emperors.

Chinese people worship their ancestors and respect their wisdom. In western mythology, fire is given by God. In Greek mythology, fire was stolen by Prometheus. But in Chinese culture, fire was made by means of drilling wood firmly and indomitably by their ancestors.

When facing the flood near the end of the world, the West took refuge in Noah's Ark. While in Chinese mythology, it is Dayu, the descendant of the Yellow Emperor, who defeated the flood. If you read Chinese myths, you will find that their stories are incredible.

Putting the plot aside and getting the cultural core of the myth, you will realize that Chinese people worship their ancestors to show their respect for the ancestors’ wisdom, and to carry forward the spirit of self-improvement of mankind.

The legend about solar deity is widespread in very country. After acquainting yourself with the relative myths, you will find that only Chinese people have the courage to challenge the solar god: a man determined to chase the sun and wanted to take off the sun because it was too hot (Kuafu Chasing the Sun). The conviction “one can lose, but cannot give in” is revealed by ancestors of Chinese people in such stories.

"A girl was drowned in the sea, she came back to life again, turned into a bird and wanted to fill up the sea. This is the spirit of self-improvement."

Every civilization is theistic in its early days, but the ancestors of Chinese people did not place their hopes for survival in God’s favor, and they believed in their own efforts and wisdom.

Westerners think that people are created by God, so everyone is equal. While Chinese people believe that human beings have a long history, and they advocate humanity. The whole nation is a family at the very beginning in spite of people’s different last names. Chinese people seek harmony but not uniformity, and they construct a satisfactory together environment.

Chinese people truly believe that "a person’s body is nurtured and affected by his parents.” People root in things, and things come from heaven and earth. Nature has provided us with food and clothing, and our ancestors have given us life. Therefore, we should show our gratitude, and hold sacred and solemn ceremonies to educate people and set social regulations to restrain people.

Ancestor worship ceremony is a very special cultural activity in China. The Yellow Emperor's birthday falls on the third day of the third lunar month. On that day, people wear costumes decorated with their last names to worship their ancestors. There are many activities on the agenda, such as firing salute, presenting flower baskets, cleaning hands, burning incense, praying, delivering oration, dancing accompanied by music, praying for heaven, earth, people and harmony.

April 7, 2019, is the third day of the third lunar month of this year. The ceremony of worshipping the Yellow Emperor has already come into countdown stage, a scene of excitement will appear in Zhengzhou city, and people gathering here will witness the grand occasion again.

SEARCHING FOR THE GENETIC ORIGIN OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST POPULATION — YELLOW EMPEROR GENE

World Ancestry of the Yellow Emperor Gene

the scene of worship

April 7th,2019,people will dress in costumes decorated with surnames to give thanks for the continuation of their bloodline and the stability of their lives.

ZHENGZHOU, CHINA, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — SEARCHING FOR THE GENETIC ORIGIN
OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST POPULATION
YELLOW EMPEROR GENE

In Chinese mythology, people attribute all the gifts of civilization to the king who used magic powers to improve the lives of his people, and chief among them was the Yellow Emperor. His genes are seeded evenly and thickly throughout East Asia and are thought to account for 25 percent of the world's population. China's diverse population groups are increasingly considered to be a relatively homogeneous group with unique origins and uninterrupted blood lineage that can be traced back to the Yellow Emperor.

If you are an American Indian or Asian, you have the possibility to have it twice or three times as many as Africans. The term "Chinese", whether limited to Han people or widely including other ethnic groups, is a general category comparable to the concept of "Anglo-Saxon" in Victorian Age: even if its members are scattered around the globe, it is a kind of genetic inheritance and a culture as well. The Chinese nation has her unique origin and continuity, and all "Chinese" can be linked through blood lineage.
The fossil evidence from Henan Province, China, is part of a broad picture of human evolution around the world and even part of the country's history—an ancient and fragmentary part that is real and mysterious. Zhengzhou of Henan Province has a long history with 8,000 years of Peigang culture, 5,000 years of the Yellow Emperor culture and 2700 years of Zhenghan culture. Here, one can find the origin and stories of the Yellow Emperor gene, which is one of the oldest lists of blood lineage in the world. Is it Africa or East Asia that is the true origin of mankind?

As the place where the Yellow Emperor was born, Xinzheng in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province, is the source of the Yellow Emperor's biological genes and the origin place of the world's exploration of Chinese cultural genes. Since the beginning of the 21st century, the annual grand ceremony held by Zhengzhou to commemorate the Yellow Emperor has become the spiritual space of billions of "Chinese people" who trace back their roots and explore themselves in the process of cultural transmission. Where am I from? The civilization established since the Neolithic Age—Xia and Shang Dynasties has also made Zhengzhou, one of the oldest cities in China, an international metropolis connecting Central China with the world. The Chinese media called her "International Zheng".

April 7th, 2019, is the third day of the third month in the Chinese lunar calendar. The third day of the third lunar month is the birthday of the Yellow Emperor, the ancestor of Chinese civilization. On this day of the year, people will dress in costumes decorated with their surnames to give thanks for the continuation of their bloodline and the stability of their lives. It will be interesting to explore the genes of the Yellow Emperor and to seek the wisdom of Chinese people.

Zhengzhou, a city where aged traditions mix with modern society, shows its sincerity and openness to the world. The year 2019, is the year of Hai (the year of the pig according to Chinese Zodiac). The grand ceremony of ancestor worship will be opened again in the hometown of the Yellow Emperor: it is a holy tradition, a mysterious and genuine ceremony with oriental cultural elements.

The Mini Program is making big money on Chinese FIT travelers

Juergen Steinmetz and Anita Chan

The China market is big. ”

— Anita Chan, CEO of Compass Edge

BERLIN, GERMANY, March 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Compass Edge knows there is a good reason why independent hotels selling rooms to Chinese travelers should have a "Mini Program" on WeChat.

Only 10% of more than a billion potential Chinese travelers have a passport, and this percentage is growing. Chinese travelers are more and more traveling as Free Independent Travelers (FIT) instead of relying on group travel, and this is an entirely new opportunity that is exploding for destinations and hotels selling to this audience.

The one company pioneering this developing market and helping to generate a huge opportunity for independent hotels and destination is Hong Kong-based Compass Edge.

eTN Publisher Juergen Steinmetz caught up with the CEO of Compass Edge, Anita Chan, during ITB Berlin.

Compass Edge works with over 550 independent hotels and small- to medium-sized hotel groups. The company was founded in 2008 and launched the GO CHINA Branding Solution in 2015 to help independent hotels to be China-Visible for the China outbound market. It implemented over 120 successful China online branding projects.

In 2017, the company opened its Europe headquarters in London and an official China IT&Travel Service company in Wuhan, China, in 2018.

Anita is a very hard-working and creative Canadian-Hong Kong executive and became CEO in 2014. Her team is bilingual.

According to McKinsey, 90% of Chinese travelers will not make direct room bookings but will instead use a travel agency or online booking platform (Online Travel Agency – OTA) when booking trips abroad. Independent hotels know this and work with the major OTAs around the world.

The key is to capture revenue after the Chinese traveler arrives at a destination.

That is where Compass Edge steps in to capture and capitalize on the booming Chinese outbound market with revenue opportunities other than the hotel booking.

Anita Chan said: "When working with Compass Edge, the focus is on ancillary revenue and local experience. The China market is big. There is now a cost-effective way to target Chinese travelers that will travel to my destination when they are at my destination.

"Chinese are quite advanced in the digital world. However, the world is different when Chinese tourists are getting to unfamiliar territory. While Chinese may spend hours in researching attractions, hotels, and restaurants at home and put a substantial time in to get the very best deal possible, this may be different once they get to their destination."

"Why can't I get my information on WeChat (the Chinese language search and chat feature with over a billion daily users). Why can't I book on using my apps?" they want to know.
That is where the Mini Program comes into play.

A "stand-alone" Mini Program will face fierce competition. Compass Edge works with Key Opinion Leaders aka Influencers) to promote Mini Programs to the Chinese traveler via multiple entry points such as GoHotelsGo, WeChat Official Account, KOLs, P2P sharing, and article sharing.

In addition, Compass Edge will leverage the unique social fission energy in China like the use of "HongBao" (Red Packet) to acquire and engage Chinese for their hotel clients.

#HOSPITALITY

Anita explains that a Chinese guest who wants to know about the spa menu and opening hours of a restaurant at a participating hotel can find a CS (Chat Session) icon on any screen to open a chat session on Live Chat and find pre-programmed responses for 80% of all questions and receive responses immediately.

For more complex issues like a maintenance issue, a user can talk to a human interface who would contact the hotel and get a response in Chinese.

In short, the Compass Edge Mini Program helps hotels to offer proper customer service to Chinese guests with the help of technology.

"Chinese guests may spend hours researching for the best deal, but once they get to their destination they are relaxed and ready to spend money," Anita told eTurboNews.

The Mini Program helps to communicate and offer instant room upgrades, an upgrade for a taxi compared to a limousine, available tours, and restaurant and show or spa reservations.

Anita explained that through Compass Edge B2BC platform, their clients can pick up substantial additional revenue. The Mini Program is not only attracting guests at a participating hotel, but Chinese travelers close by to get them to buy services from a Compass Edge hotel client.

The Mini Program can show restaurant menus and reviews by other Chinese guests who give first-hand feedback all aimed at an instant decision and business for the Chinese travelers.

While WeChat is a closed platform, the WeChat Mini Program is open to all users and will show up under "Discover" said Anita.

In summary, Compass Edge helps hotels to go deep to capture ancillary revenue and to enhance the local experience for Chinese FIT travelers.

Steinmetz asked: "Is this affordable?"

Ready to learn about ten of thousands of dollars every month to take advantage of such a system, Anita's response was almost too good to be true: "Go China Online Branding Solutions starts from only $500 per month."

Branding is everything in China, and Compass Edge has the solution.
For WeChat Mini Program, although the official pricing is not out yet, it will be within a very affordable price range similar to Go China Online Branding Solutions to start.

Mexican client had traffic violations on his record, as well as non-compliance with orders related to prior domestic violence, in removal after a bond violation

Cuprys and Associates (N/A:N/A)

A.H. suffered greatly while being detained, which kept him away from his children. Since immigration relief is available to him based on a prior immigration petition, I am grateful for his release”

— Magdalena Cuprys, Immigration Lawyer in Florida

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The law firm of Cuprys and Associates announced that immigration attorney Magdalena Cuprys succeeded in obtaining bond for a Mexican client with minor criminal offenses on the record that should not result in deportation. This is a notable achievement since the client had a prior bond violation on the record.

A.H., originally from Mexico, has resided in the U.S. since 1995, is married, and has four children born in the U.S. His father, a U.S. permanent resident, had previously filed an immigrant petition for him, making him eligible for immigration relief under 245(i) [for those for whom immigrant petitions or labor certifications were filed by April 1, 2001].* He was arrested after a prior bond violation and detained at Krome Detention Center in Florida.

First, attorney Magdalena Cuprys filed a Motion for Bond with the Immigration Court in Miami, Florida. Second, Ms. Cuprys filed for Cancellation of Removal and Adjustment of Status, providing the court with proof that deporting A.H. would result in extreme and unusual hardship to his four U.S. born children. Immigration lawyer Magdalena Cuprys thereafter succeeded with the Bond motion, and A.H. was released from detention.

Ms. Cuprys stated that “A.H. suffered greatly while being detained, which kept him away from his children. He has lived in the U.S. for almost 25 years, and has several close family members living here. Since immigration relief is available to him based on a prior immigration petition, we are very grateful for his release.”

The underlying case is “In the Matter of: H.-G., A.,” Case Number A205-344 …, Immigration Court, Miami, Florida.

* Section 245(i) allows certain persons, who have an immigrant visa immediately available but entered without inspection or otherwise violated their status and thus are ineligible to apply for adjustment of status in the United States, to apply if they pay a $1,000 penalty. The LIFE Act temporarily extends the ability to preserve eligibility for this provision of law until April 30, 2001. Use of Section 245(i) adjustment of status previously was limited to eligible individuals who were the beneficiary of a visa petition or labor certification application filed on or before January 14, 1998.
