NEWS: Corporate Housing Demand Up

According to the newly released report in Consulting Magazine “Travel Bounces Back in 2013!”

Annually Consulting Magazine conducts its Best Places to Stay survey to find out what travel trends and demands exist in the consulting industry and this year all numbers are pointing up 🙂

17% of all Consultants say they take 1 or 2 extended stay trips a year (30 days or longer).  9% say they take 3 or more 30+ day stays a year. Both these numbers are up from the year before. Previous year only 10% said they had 1 or 2 stays of 30 days or more and only 6% said 3 or more stays of 30+ days.

Did you have a business consultant stay in your property?

55% of Consultants traveled 100+ days last year up from 41%. On average they were all on the road 98 days.

Are you making it easy for traveling Consultants to stay in your property?

 If you were traveling 98+ days a year what would make your stay in a new city more enjoyable, more comfortable and more likely to refer to a friend?
