A Case Study
Global Hotel Strategy
 We outsource the process. We conduct hotel spend analysis using data from
Agencies, major hotel chains, credit card and T&E systems.
 Solicit preferred hotel preferences from administrators and top travelers in your
key global markets that may not be captured in the data due to direct bookings
 Understand your travel profile –


Why do you travel? What type of hotels are needed for the type of travel you have?
What ancillary items are in your hotel folio data that your travelers use and that are expensed?
 Compile a list of all hotels used – Case study: 1400 hotels used and 980 hotels where
we had spend in the previous year with over 100 room nights in the market. I combine
meetings and events and corporate travel spend to be sure we leverage our contribution.
 RFPs are sent and we narrow the selection. Case study: Narrowed to 410 hotels
where we had substantial spend or the property was requested as a preferred by
travelers or administrator.

 Each year we try to reduce number of properties.
 In 2012 we identified the purpose of travel and solicited additional 3 star properties
to fit the need. This reduced our Average weight hotel room night cost
 Rates begin loading in the global preferred agencies online and offline systems for
booking on December 1. (Hotels must load the rates). 2 formal audits are held
through out the year to make sure the rates are loaded and used. We also do spot
audits through out the year.

industry predictions of 5-9% increase.
