The Hotel Chain Ties Up With Local Municipal Blood Banks & Raises Awareness On Emergency Preparedness

Mumbai, June 29, 2017: India's leading mid-market hospitality chain – Lords Hotels & Resorts observed World Blood Donor Day (WBDD) on 14th June across its hotels. As part of the initiative, the hotel chain campaigned in line with World Health Organization's (WHO) focus this year on blood donation in emergencies. Each of its hotel units tied up with the nearest blood bank and deposited blood which would be utilized for blood transfusion for emergency care. Close to three hundred people including hotel employees volunteered to participate in the campaign and collectively donated over 130 L of blood on the day. The objective of the campaign was to generate awareness on the importance of giving blood regularly, so that there is always a sufficient blood stock in case of emergencies.

"The most important take away from the activity was getting to understand the need for a constant supply and inventory of blood at the blood banks. We may be donating blood on a case to case basis which goes to replenish the used amounts of blood. However millions of people are affected by medical emergencies every year and there is a continuous requirement of blood for both anticipated and unanticipated transfusions. By being part of this campaign and having understood the importance of donating blood regularly, we are hopeful that many of us will continue to practice it," says Mr PR Bansal, Chairman & Managing Director, Lords Hotels & Resorts.

14 June of each year is celebrated as World Blood Donor Day. The event serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood.

"We are thankful to all those who proactively came forward to be part of this noble campaign and for making it a success. We are also thankful to all the local blood banks for their services and their support. Most of all we feel glad that we were part of a very simple yet so critical a drive. Making blood available to whoever is in need is a life-saving deed and a gift from humankind and to humankind. We are positive that we have made a significant impact in raising awareness by becoming a part of the campaign this year," concludes Mr Rishi Puri, Vice President, Lords Hotels & Resorts.

New Delhi, June 28, 2017: The Hotel Times: What relevance does big data hold in the hotel industry?

Vikram Rao: Every hotel is a gateway to a city. The experience of a city is intrinsically linked to the ​experience a guest has at the hotel they choose. Being in the services industry, it is imperative that hotels understand their customers' preferences. Big data technology​ companies like Crayon Data,​ can provide hotels with the ability to provide highly personalized and curated options and services to their customers.

The Hotel Times: How can hotels use data analytics to serve customer better?

Vikram Rao: ​Dynamic pricing at hotels is closely linked to traveller traffic patterns in a city. If hotels equip themselves with the right technology/analytics partners, they can unearth patterns and insights​ ​from how and what choices travellers make. And use that data, ​to customise experiences and offers of relevance for their guests, leading to greater customer engagement and satisfaction.

The Hotel Times: ​​How does Maya help the hotels?

Vikram Rao: ​Personalisation is the future of customer engagement. Crayon's Maya enables data-led personalisation, right across a guest's journey. From the time of check-in to post check-out, Maya captures preferences and suggests value based services based on guest profiles. Maya improves personalisation with previous and current behaviour knowledge, which results in highly relevant conversations between the hotel and their guests. Hotels can tailor their offers to guests' tastes and preferences too. Maya also makes profile-based conversions to direct channels of booking, possible.

The Hotel Times: Can you share a case study where Maya has helped a particular hotel?

Vikram Rao: A leading UK based hospitality brand ​gained, $87 increase in revenue per booking, 18% conversion to direct bookings (from indirect channels), 16% increase in additional bookings per guest from repeat visits.

The Hotel Times: What partnerships do you have in place to reach out to the hotel clients?

Vikram Rao: Crayon has been selected to be part of Amadeus' Asia Pacific travel technology startup community called Amadeus Next. Crayon, with its growing presence in various geographies, will benefit from Amadeus' global reach. This will allow Crayon Data to expand its services to a global audience.

Macao ,June 23, 2017: Conrad Macao Cotai Central's signature Chinese restaurant, Dynasty 8, has been awarded 'Two Wine Glasses' for four consecutive years at China's Wine List of the Year Awards . Receiving Two Glasses indicates that the restaurant's wine list is recognized as 'Excellent'.

The Wine List of the Year Awards were originally established by Tucker Sea brook in Australia in 1994 and are now the premier national awards for wine lists in that country. The awards have been invaluable in recognizing and rewarding the country's finest wine lists whilst building rapport and brand loyalty between supporting producers, wineries, importers, and distributors and their on-trade market. The primary objective of the awards is to help raise the public's interest in fine wine generally, and to improve their appreciation of the participating establishments.

The founders of the awards were so impressed with the quality of the wine lists that already existed in China they felt that they should be recognized along with the talents of the sommeliers that were managing them. By doing so they felt that the awards could help serve both as a motivator and a guide to drive further development of many wine lists across greater China's hospitality and tourism industries.

As a result in 2011, the Wine List of the Year Awards Founder was asked by representatives from China's hospitality, tourism Industry and government to bring the Wine List of the Year Awards to China and in 2012 China's Wine List of the Year Awards were launched at the 2012 China Sommelier Competition in Shanghai.

Now one of the most anticipated events on the industry calendar, these prestigious awards have been instrumental in elevating the standard of the nation's Wine Lists while recognizing and rewarding the talents of many of the nation's best sommeliers.

Guests can enjoy more than 520 international wines including many from China, on Dynasty 8's award-winning wine list. The restaurant is open Mondays through Fridays, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and 6-11 p.m. (Saturdays and Sundays open at 10 a.m.), seven days a week.
