10 hospitality trends for 2012

Robert A. Rauch, CHA, outlines his top 10 trend picks for hotels in the coming year. Among them:

-Look for more capital reinvestment in renovations and refurbishments (I foresee a lot of press releases in my future).

-More online and mobile device booking, and more social media interaction with travelers

-Up but uneven rates and occupancy, where rebounds depend on the destination

What do you see coming next year on the meetings side? Here's what AMEX thinks is coming.
