Hotel Group strikes Accord with Chinese market

first_imgAccor Hotel group will be the first hotel in Australia to introduce an accredited “Optimum Service Standards” program specifically aimed for the inbound China market.The program has been specially designed to cater for the needs of Chinese guests offering services which include Chinese speaking reception and concierge staff, Chinese preferred breakfast menus and Chinese TV channels and newspapers.Accor Hotel group will introduce the new China “Optimum Service Standards” initially to 10 – 15 of their largest hotels located in cities that traditionally attract large numbers of Chinese visitors.According to the Tourism Forecasting Council, China is predicted to become Australia’s second largest market behind New Zealand by 2018.In 2010, Accor’s Hotels recorded a 28.6 per cent increase in Chinese business compared to 2009, and the forecast for 2011 is expected to be similar.“The China market is one of the most promising for Australia’s tourism future, and so it is essential that we provide the highest possible level of facilities and service when they visit Australia,” Accor Hotel vice president Simon McGrath said.Mr McGrath said that offering this specialty program for Chinese tourists is ‘long overdue’ and he expressed the importance of ensuring whilst they are staying in the Accor hotels that they have access to services such as communication and food preferences to ensure they have a comfortable experience.The Accor Accreditation Program for Chinese Visitation and Service program will be fully accredited by an approved Chinese external organisation and is scheduled for introduction over the next few weeks.

Sunshine Coast leads southern Queenslands tourism

first_imgSunshine Coast is leading the way for visitor growth in southern Queensland, experiencing a 4.6 percent growth in visitor numbers, according to National Visitor Survey results released by Tourism Research Australia today.Welcoming 2.8 million visitors for the 2013 – 2014 financial year, Sunshine Coast was one of four Queensland destinations to experience growth and represented the largest growth for southern Queensland.Townsville and the Whitsundays surpassed the Sunshine Coast’s performance for the state of Queensland, up 5.4 percent and 4.7 percent respectively, while Brisbane’s visitor numbers grew by one percent.The majority of the visitor growth for Sunshine Coast was driven by the strong business, events and conference sector, which saw a significant growth of 40 percent.The results follow equally positive International Visitor Survey results released last week, which showed a 1.8 percent increase in international arrivals, and are attributed to a complete regeneration of Sunshine Coast Destination over the past year.“We have quality product available throughout the region and we have reviewed, revised and upgraded every area, with our strategy of diversity reflected by the broad range of events held and the results are now becoming apparent,” Sunshine Coast Destination chief executive officer Simon Ambrose said.“The diversity, quality and convenience of our location has also rejuvenated the business events sector, with the region attracting more conferences, incentives and special events in 2013-14 than in the previous year.”DestinationQ will be held in the Sunshine Coast next week, bringing together over 300 delegates for Queensland’s largest tourism trade event and is well placed to build on the domestic and international results.Source = ETB News: Lana Bogunovich Maleny Botanic Gardens, Sunshine Coastlast_img read more

Adelaide Airport Master Plan approved

Inventory Seasonal Issues Weigh on Bay State Home Sales

first_img Single-family home sales dropped in Massachusetts last month, with inventory and seasonal factors fingered as the culprit.According to the Warren Group, a real estate information company for New England, Bay State single-family sales totaled 2,078 in February, a 4.1 percent decline compared to the same month a year ago. It marks the eighth February in the last 10 years that sales have slowed.Warren Group CEO Timothy M. Warren Jr. said the drop “was caused by the same lack of inventory that has plagued the market for months,” though he noted there were some other factors at play.“These February sales numbers represent closings on homes that went under agreement in December for the most part,” he said. “Cold weather and holidays are certainly factors in making February traditionally the slowest month of the year.”Also figuring into last month’s slowdown was a 2 percent increase in the median single-family home price, which was up $5,500 to $280,000. The median price of a single-family home in Massachusetts has increased every month since September 2012, according to the Warren Group.

Renewed Uncertainty Hits Mortgage App Rates

first_img“Renewed Uncertainty” Hits Mortgage App Rates in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Origination Share Mortgage applications declined 3.7 percent from the week earlier according to the latest weekly mortgage applications survey by the MBA. The unadjusted market composite index saw a decline of 4 percent compared with the previous week, the survey indicated.While the Refinance Index decreased slightly by 0.1 percent, the Purchase Index saw a decline of 6 percent from the prior week, the same as the unadjusted purchase index, which trended 5 percent lower than the same week a year ago.Putting the decrease in overall applications down to a “renewed uncertainty about the domestic and global economy” that probably held homebuyers from entering the market, Joel Kan, AVP of Industry Surveys and Forecasts at MBA said that despite the recent decline he expected the “continued strength of the job market and lower rates” to support purchase activity moving forward.However, refinance as a share of total mortgage activity saw an increase, rising to 43.2 percent during the week compared with 41.6 percent in the prior week. The adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) share of activity decreased to 7.5 percent of total applications.The share of government loans also saw a slight increase during the week with the FHA share of total applications inching up to 11 percent from 10.5 percent in the previous week, the share of VA applications increasing to 11 percent from 10 percent, and the share of USDA applications seeing a slight rise to 0.6 percent from 0.5 percent.”Government refinances provided a bright spark, picking up over 10 percent as both FHA and VA refinancing activity saw increases over the week,” Kan said.Looking at the movement in mortgage rates during the week, the data found that:The average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with conforming loan balances decreased from 4.69 percent to 4.65 percent.For 30-year fixed-rate jumbo loan mortgages, the average interest rate decreased from 4.5 percent to 4.4 percent. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgages backed by the FHA decreased from 4.7 percent to 4.6 percent.The average contract interest rate for 15-year fixed-rate mortgages decreased from 4.1 percent to 4 percentThe average rate for 5/1 ARMs decreased from 4 percent to 3.9 percent.The effective rate for all these loans decreased during the week.center_img February 13, 2019 847 Views ARMS FHA Interest Rate Loan Application MBA mortgage Purchase Loans Refinance USDA VA 2019-02-13 Radhika Ojhalast_img read more

Reflecting Etihad Airways evolution into an airl

first_imgReflecting Etihad Airways’ evolution into an ‘airline of choices’, the airline has launched its new brand campaign in key markets from 13 November across print, digital and social channels.Etihad’s new ‘Choose Well’ customer proposition is an invitation for all to make choices about how they travel and to journey on their own terms. It is also a validation that Etihad’s customers, partners, guests and employees are at the heart of every good choice it makes. The launch is timed to coincide with the airline’s birthday celebrations of fifteen years since its first flight.As part of the campaign, the airline chose to feature a range of individuals including its own staff. One person lending her voice to the power of choices is Shaima Rashed, one of the UAE’s first Airbus A380 female pilots, who always dreamed of wearing the golden stripes. Through courage, conviction and choosing her own path, she fulfilled her dream and now flies the airline’s flagship aircraft.The inspiration behind the new campaign was taken from the Founding Father of the UAE, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and the choices he made to develop his nation and his people. The refresh sees the inclusion of the ‘Choose Well’ line as part of the airline’s visual identity, deployed across marketing collateral, sponsorships and events with the aim of creating greater visual impact. It recognises the decision-making power of the consumer and is the perfect complement to the line ‘Abu Dhabi to the World’. airlinesChoose WellEtihad Airwayslast_img read more

Since coming to the Valley prior to the 2014 seaso

first_imgSince coming to the Valley prior to the 2014 season, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians has become something we haven’t seen in these parts very often — a media darling.Arians is a great sound bite, the antithesis of past Cardinals coaches Vince Tobin and Ken Whisenhunt. But he can coach a little bit, too.The 62-year-old is the reigning NFL Coach of the Year after leading the battered Cardinals to the playoffs for the first time since 2009. It’s his second such award in the last three seasons. 0 Comments   Share   Pete Prisco of CBS Sports has ranked all 32 NFL head coaches, and not surprisingly, has Arians at #8 on the list.In two seasons with the Cardinals, Arians is 21-11 and has been to the postseason once, that coming last season. But he also led the Colts to a 9-3 record when he took over for Chuck Pagano in 2012 when Pagano was battling leukemia. Arians has been voted Coach of the Year twice in his three seasons — winning when he was interim coach in 2012.New England’s Bill Belichick tops the list, followed by Seattle’s Pete Carroll and Green Bay’s Mike McCarthy.

When the Cardinals picked up their first win of the season on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, the offensive line sat together after the game — like they usually will — and collected their thoughts on the performance.“It was still so much stuff left out there for us, just speaking for our group specifically — that was the sense I got from everybody,” Humphries said. “Everyone was really excited about the win but everyone was also really focused on figuring out ways to fix those little plays that they had, and those moments that they had — mental errors and stuff like that — so that was really refreshing.”That group’s biggest job, of course, is to protect the quarterback. That’s a job that has gained even more importance since first-round pick Josh Rosen took over the starting position, as Rosen is now the short- and long-term answer for the Cardinals at the position.Cole thinks the progress is coming along.“I tihnk we’ve been improving every week,” he said. “The biggest thing is, especially on the road, is communicating. That’s been our focus since day one and just trying to communicate with everyone up and down the line and make sure we’re all on the same page. If we’re all on the same page, we’ll be good.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Beyond that responsibility, the Cardinals’ biggest weapon is running back David Johnson, who has had a slow start to the season. Johnson can only run where the holes are, and that’s on Humphries’ and Cole’s group.For Cole, it comes back to its overall improvement.“Week-by-week we are getting better and better, and I’m just looking forward to seeing our progression and keep going,” he said. Every position group in the NFL has its own quirks, but none more so than the offensive line.Rookie center Mason Cole and left tackle D.J. Humphries provided a glimpse into the dynamic between the group on the Big Red Rage.“It’s really funny how we got so many different guys that weren’t together last year and we mesh together so well so fast,” Humphries said on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories 2 Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellinglast_img read more
