Ponencia de Pino Violante is at InteriHotel
The life expectancy of a hotel. How, when and why should a hotel be renovated?
An interior design project can transform a poorly used, badly constructed or unattractive space into a unique, beautiful and profitable environment. When it comes to planning, it is essential to study what kind of guest we are looking to host at the hotel and what they are looking for. And at the same time, we provide creative solutions and diverse, exclusive areas that guests will delight in, therefore building loyalty and improving the hotel’s profits.
In this presentation, Giuseppe Violante explained how a disadvantage can easily be turned into an opportunity to create the ideal space, totally made to measure, as happened in the reform of the Hotel Pure Salt Garonda. A project that was designed and that has been endorsed by high satisfaction figures, with a GRI of 90.8% in 2017 and an outstanding NPS of 39.7 for three seasons.
Some of the most relevant ideas revealed by the renowned architect referred to the importance of working on a clear segmentation of the target audience of the hotel when planning a hotel reform, bearing in mind each season and different uses, as well as innovation in its most functional and aesthetic version. In addition, the conferences organised by Interihotel, the largest showcase in Spain specialising in hotel interior design, featured the participation of other renowned professionals from the habitat sector, including architects and interior designers such as Jaime Beriestain or Manuel Espejo.
