Tasmanian hotels celebrate 13 year high in occupancy rates
Tasmanian Hotel Association officials celebrated the 13-year milestone this week when they were announced as the hospitality industry’s highest-rated agency.
In a report commissioned for the Associatm카지노ion by hotel and travel company Deloitte, the hotel industry’s top three performance categories — client satisfaction, business and service performance — were in line with last year’s best marks and represented only 1.5 per cent of the overall industry.
“It’s a huge jump. The industry really picked up the pace,” said Aja Murtaza, CEO of the Tasmanian Hotel Association.
“To really do something, it takes time, which is why the industry started to have really strong performance. For the next 13 years that will be a record for the industry, particularly in tourism.”
The hospitality industry’s latest industry sector report noted Tasmania’s strong growth from a $632 million net loss in the financial yea제천출장마사지r to August 2016 to a $957 million growth in the financial year to September 2017. The year to September 2017 was also its highest since 2009.
On a year-on-year basis it has grown by 2.3 per cent.
“There’s always a lot of factors that go into hotel performance, but one of the biggest things that is driving performance is the market, and tourism in particular, as it has been,제주안마” Murtaza said.
“We have a lot of room to grow at the same time as the economy is improving, particularly for hotels.”
Tasmanian Tourism Agency chief executive Tony Jang welcomed the improvement.
“It’s exciting times to be a Tasmanian. The industry needs to pick up the pace, and our growth is really helping us achieve that,” Jang said.
In a statement released this week, Deloitte said, overall, the report identified three areas in which the Tasmanian hotel and travel industry’s performance continued to improve.
