The slow performance in Q1 2019 was already predicted. Business activity has yet to resume and the anticipated political event is another reason why the market in Q1 has not flourished. Fortunately, several corporate and government events had commenced and were expected to be done before Election Day.
Q2 will be challenging due to festive season. Hoteliers have to keep up with their Q3 and Q4 budgets. Hoteliers are pretty sure that there will be a lot of government activities held during Q3 and Q4. To maintain loyal customers, hoteliers must also dare to offer privileges to their guests so that they would not move to other hotels, especially new hotels.
