Rich with Memories: Outrigger’s “Memory Bank” Hits 40,000 Stories

Hospitality Industry News - October 1, 2018 - 4:33pm
After a full-year of 70th anniversary celebrations, Outrigger Hotels and Resorts is concluding its Platinum Anniversary by inviting vacationers to visit any of its tropical destinations across Hawaii, Asia-Pacific and the Indian Ocean for up to 40 percent off the current room rate. From now through October 26, 2018, guests who use the code "MEMORIES" when booking online will save on their stay at any Outrigger location for travel through June 30, 2019. As part of Outrigger's year-long 70th anniversary, the brand celebrated the milestone with a "Share Your Story" campaign, encouraging guests to share throwback photos and recollections of their favorite Outrigger memory. The results were phenomenal, with more than 40,000 people sharing a personal experience. From surf trips to graduation parties, wedding proposals and annual family getaways, the common theme across all submissions was: "I had the time of my life!" Bob and Kathleen Swieton were newlyweds from Illinois that stayed at The Reef Tower Hotel in 1967.They sent a newspaper clipping about the honeymoon alongside their original Hawaii honeymoon outfit to the resort as a memento. Outrigger gave life to the retro orange and brown aloha wear at the company's 70th Anniversary party last May - with models wearing them at the event. Outrigger has extended a complimentary stay for the Swieton's to return to Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort and renew their love in Hawaii at the resort's complimentary vow-renewal ceremony. "For seven decades, Outrigger has provided guests with unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime vacation memories and we are proud to continue this tradition today said Sean Dee, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Outrigger Enterprises Group." "Outrigger's 70th anniversary was a time to reflect, but more important - an opportunity to look forward as we further position ourselves as the world's leading beachfront hospitality brand." A handful of other memories submitted: • "As a kid my dad used to take us down to Outrigger Waikiki once a year when his relatives came to visit from California. As kids it was always something that we looked forward to. We would enjoy swimming in the pool with the window where the people at the bar could watch us through the window. We grew up out in the country (Laie) so going to stay in Waikiki was a big dea l for us. Those were some of the best memories for me and my siblings growing up." • "I stayed with Outrigger in 1969 with four other girlfriends. We shared the penthouse facing Diamond Head and I still have the receipt for the week that shows my portion of the bill was 70 dollars for the week! I had just turned 21 and this was my first trip to Hawaii and my first airplane flight. I had the time of my life that week and didn't want to leave. It would be fun to stay there again and relive the memories!"• "We visited Oahu to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We stayed at the Outrigger and renewed our wedding vows on the beach on the morning after our arrival. Loved the ceremony! It was so much more than we had anticipated. Enjoyed a beautiful first day of touring around the island and ended the day on the beach just outside the hotel watching fireworks. Fabulous day!" On September 29, the hospitality brand will celebrate Ou trigger Founders Day worldwide, honoring the legacy of its founding members, Roy and Estelle Kelley - as well as the company's inspiring journey of growing a single Waikiki hotel to a global portfolio of properties in the most desired tropical locations including Hawaii, Fiji, Mauritius, Thailand Guam and the Maldives.Since its first property opening in Waikiki in 1947, Outrigger had the vision of sharing the spirit of aloha with every guest and becoming synonymous with warm hospitality and a true vacation in paradise. More than seven decades later, Outrigger continues to encourage travelers to "Escape Ordinary" and discover local cultures through enriching programs and Outrigger Signature Experiences that create a deeper connection with the people and places they visit. Today, these founding values continue to guide the brand's success, which has blossomed into a global company that thinks and acts locally, encompassing the Outrigger heritage as well as the spirit and culture engrained at each of its 38 properties across the globe.

Hoteliers - Make the Most of Your 2019 Tech Budget | By Magnus Friberg

Hospitality Industry News - October 1, 2018 - 4:11pm
Autumn isn't the only season that is taking shape right now — for hoteliers, budget planning season is fast approaching. Budget management is always top of mind for hoteliers, but no time more than now, as CFO's and Controllers work to predict expenses and allocate spend for the upcoming year. The question on everyone's mind becomes — where will 2019 investments go? Renovations? Technology? Staffing? Marketing? FF&E? During the budgetary process, there are a number of variables to consider. Primarily, hoteliers tend to focus on guest-facing CAPEX initiatives in the form of property updates — think, new carpet in the lobby, fresh paint in the hallways, and anything that the guest can "see." In a previous time when technology was simply running in the background, this made sense. Guests were mostly concerned with physical upgrades to ensure their stay was comfortable and up to aesthetic expectations. However, technology has long since given up its place in the backseat of hotel operations.
