Fin­ding the ba­lan­ce: hu­man touch ver­sus high tech
560340htt­ps://me­dia.cms­legal.com/me­dia/em­bed?key=4c23d8f91dc­bac6d106faa16ce87d782&uni­que_key=4e1357a6d52589721a54cfb30baac4a0&width=720&height=405&au­to­play=fal­se&au­to­lights­off=fal­se&loop=fal­se&clean1al­waysez­no­de://499614Ho­tels and res­tau­rants are in­cre­a­sin­gly ex­pec­ted to de­li­ver a new and dif­fe­rent ex­pe­rien­ce; one that lea­ves a las­ting me­mo­ry, dis­tin­guis­hes them from their com­pe­ti­tors and em­bra­ces not just tech­no­lo­gy, but the fu­tu­re.And what is that fu­tu­re? He­re co­me the mil­len­ni­als. A ge­ne­ra­ti­on of di­gi­tal na­ti­ves with sig­ni­fi­cant spen­ding po­wer. In fact, mil­len­ni­als al­rea­dy ac­count for 28% of re­ve­nues for ho­tels and 29% for res­tau­rants, ac­cor­ding to our re­search.This ge­ne­ra­ti­on is clear­ly ha­ving an im­pact on the sec­tor. Howe­ver, our sur­vey of over 5,000 mil­len­ni­als in 18 coun­tries, con­tra­sted with the views of over 170 lea­ders in the ho­tel and res­tau­rant sec­tor, dis­pels se­ve­r­al my­ths and ste­reo­ty­pes. It’s clear, for example, that the­re is no ty­pi­cal mil­len­ni­al. Li­fe sta­ge and ge­o­grap­hic lo­ca­ti­on hea­vi­ly im­pact their choi­ces. And they do not al­ways va­lue high tech over the hu­man touch. At least in the world of ho­tels and res­tau­rants, ex­pe­rien­ce trumps tech­no­lo­gy.So how do ho­tels and res­tau­rants res­pond? How do they in­vest in a fu­tu­re dri­ven by the most tech-sa­vvy ge­ne­ra­ti­on to reach adult­hood yet? How do they cre­a­te ef­fi­cien­cies to sol­ve pinch points in the bu­si­nes­ses wit­hout alie­na­ting the very mar­ket they’re trying to at­tract?For example, our re­search sug­gests that ho­tels and res­tau­rants overesti­ma­te the va­lue mil­len­ni­als pla­ce on au­to­ma­ted pro­ces­ses using apps and ta­blets. This ge­ne­ra­ti­on still wants to pla­ce a food or­der or check out with a re­al per­son. 78% say they pre­fer the hu­man touch throug­hout their who­le di­ning ex­pe­rien­ce. Ro­bots be­wa­re.Tech does ha­ve an in­flu­en­ce though. Ho­tels are esti­ma­ted to be in­ves­ting over 9% of an­nu­al re­ve­nue on tech­no­lo­gy, equi­va­lent to USD 1 tril­li­on. The most po­pu­lar ho­tel tech are high-speed Wi­Fi, an app for ho­tel ser­vi­ces, mu­sic strea­ming and an in-room ta­blet for room con­trols. In res­tau­rants, the most po­pu­lar fa­ci­li­ties are the abi­li­ty to or­der food and drinks be­fo­re ar­ri­ving, paying via an app and or­de­ring food elec­tro­ni­cally at the ve­nue. But glo­bally on­ly 16% thought 3D vir­tu­al en­ter­tain­ment would im­pro­ve their di­ning ex­pe­rien­ce. By con­trast, 28% of res­tau­rants ex­pect to im­ple­ment 3D vir­tu­al en­ter­tain­ment in their res­tau­rants within the next 24 months.The­se are just a few of the sur­pri­sing fin­dings of our re­search. Com­bi­ned with our own in­sight, we al­so sha­re the la­test thin­king from se­ve­r­al high pro­fi­le in­du­stry fi­gu­res who ha­ve plen­ty to say on this sub­ject. We ho­pe you en­joy rea­ding their views and the re­port and look for­ward to dis­cus­sing it with you in mo­re de­tail.
