An overall increase of 9.72% in the first quarter with +15.81% on GDS and +6.75 in calls.
At the closing of the first quarter of 2008, Space Hotels confirms its leadership in the reservations market with an overall increase of 9.72% with respect to the previous year. Specifically, GDS (General Distribution Systems) reservations were up by 15.81% and telephone reservations by 6.75%. April was the best month with an overall production growth of 24.93%, including increases of 15.40% in GDS traffic and 30.56% in telephone traffic. This is both a significant result and an exception within a market that is not currently performing well. The production rate in the United States, one of the largest user bases, has fallen by as much as 15% with regards to traditional European destinations such as Italy, France and Spain, in favour of Eastern European countries.
The strength of professionalism
In an economic scenario that is not giving reassuring signs, including the internal Italian market, Space Hotels has maintained and even increased its market share thanks to the skills and professionalism of its sales force. It has diversified its strategies intensifying its activities and assistance regarding its clientele. Its staff, which has developed within the company, can confidently deal with any problems that may arise and fully satisfy all needs of those seeking their assistance.
A response to every request
Another reason for this success is the fact that an affiliation with Space Hotels does not require a change of identity. Hotels affiliated with Space do not lose any of their individuality or specificity. In fact, the large international group promotes the unique characteristics of its affiliates. Moreover, Space Hotels does not handle just hotel reservations. Its offer also includes finding ideal spaces for business meetings, events and conferences based on the specific needs of its clients.
