Hotel charging stations

Installing electric vehicle charging stations in a hotel car park

The market for electric vehicles in France is booming. Throughout 2021 (up to October), approximately 17.8% of vehicles sold in France were electric and hybrid vehicles, which is up by 33% compared to the same period in 2020 (source: Avere – monthly barometer). In Europe, the global fleet of electrified passenger vehicles now stands at 4.1 million units, twice as many as in 2019 (according to BNEF). The presence of a charging point at a hotel or restaurant is therefore a key criterion of choice for customers driving electrical vehicles. As a hotel or restaurant owner, the issue is not […]

Hotel Trends

Five 2022 Hospitality Trends to Watch

Across Europe, hoteliers are starting to look forward to a year of full business once more, after two years of stop-start restrictions. In early February 2022, governments in Scandinavia and the UK announced plans to remove all travel restrictions they had imposed to manage the coronavirus pandemic. Other European governments are likely to follow the lead by easing international travel restrictions. Some countries, such as Spain, have an economy that relies heavily on inbound tourism, while Germany benefits substantially from the international business of trade fairs. With everyone now optimistic that the covid pandemic is moving into the rear-view mirror, […]

Starting with Sustainability

The subject of sustainability and reducing carbon intensity has grown in importance, just as many of us were forced into pandemic lockdowns and had to travel less. This is now increasingly becoming embedded into our lives, with businesses committing to do their part to reduce their environmental impact. Many larger companies have started with a headline promise of a reduction target.   Sustainable Hospitality Alliance reported that the hotel sector accounts for around 1% of global carbon emissions. To keep pace, the global hotel industry will need to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per room per year by 66% […]

Hospitality Embraces Cherry Pi to Improve Efficiency

Hospitality businesses across Europe are looking for ways to improve efficiency, as they recover from the pandemic and reopen for business. Supply chains issues, and staffing challenges, mean business managers need to discover how to do more, with less. One of the key ways to improve efficiency for hospitality businesses, is to automate processes that may until now have been managed manually. And Trinity’s e-Procurement Co-ordinator, Celine Snauwaert, is discovering that the group’s online software system, called Pi, is the solution for many in the sector. “Before joining Trinity, I spent almost 20 years in hospitality, so I understand the […]

Post-COVID breakfast options

Post-COVID breakfast options: Solutions to support your breakfast operations

These days, hygiene is on everyone’s mind. Especially when trying to enjoy a good meal at a restaurant or hotel. Some of the measures taken during COVID-19 might be here to stay. Here are some suggestions to consider for enhancing a “conventional” breakfast buffet set-up. The Food and Drug Administration has released a series of best practices for restaurants, which include discontinuing self-serving stations that require customers to use common utensils or dispensers, like salad bars and buffets. We may very well see as a by-product of COVID-19 an emphasis being placed on safety, cleanliness, and hygiene even at the […]

Time to plan for reopening

Time to plan for reopening

Everyone in the hospitality sector, across Europe, has endured many frustrating months of trading restrictions. Now, while the way ahead is not exactly defined, we can at least look forward to reopening, and beginning to serve customers and guests once more. Through the depths of the covid crisis, many organisations learned how to become more agile, and to work together to help not just one another, but to support those in need due to the pandemic. We can all take inspiration from the stories of helping accommodate the homeless, feeding key workers, and providing support to others, in completely new […]
