Hotel Opening Processes: Exploring better ways to open new hotels.
Saturday, 22nd March 2014

The newly launched Hotel Opening Processes website explores ways to better manage new hotel openings and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the process.

This website focuses on Gert Noordzy’s research subjects related to new hotel opening processes.

Screen shot of the newly launched website - Hotel Opening ProcessesThese include root causes of hotel opening delays, project management of new hotel opening processes, as well as quantification of new hotel opening delays.

Future subjects will evolve around the impact of psychological typology and cultural dimensions on new hotel opening processes, and differences between state owned and private enterprises.

In Asia Pacific, the Chinese hotel industry has started the steepest new hotel development curve the world has ever experienced.

By 2039 China is expected to reach 9.1 million hotel rooms, four times its current number.

Development on this scale generates specific dynamics and challenges.

Interestingly, there seems to have been relatively little research done to understand the problems in managing hotel openings.

There is no conventional literature on hotel opening processes and very few independent articles and reviews on the subject are up to speed.

Hotel Opening Processes endeavours to conduct and publish research in the field and challenges the hotel industry to improve its new hotel opening track record. Initially, the primary focus will be on Greater China.
