Dwelling on Lodging
As new Editor-in-Chief of e*Concepts and e*Concierge Live, I’m happy to report as the first matter of interest that we will be featured in the March 2012 edition of Lodging. We’re very excited about the exposure of e*Concepts and e*Concierge Live in such a widely-read publication. According to information on the Lodging Facebook page,“Lodging is read monthly by more than 40,000 hotel owners, managers and executives.”Wow! That’s quite an impressive readership. To give a little more background and appreciation for the breadth of the magazine, check this out:
“Lodging magazine is the official magazine of the American Hotel & Lodging Association, Lodging informs and inspires owners and operators through award-winning features, departments, and columns. Topics range from the operational — design, technology, marketing, food & beverage — to development and franchising to governmental affairs. Many of the industry’s best minds contribute to Lodging. Regular contributors include Smith Travel Research on industry performance and PKF Consulting for industry financial trends and issues. Through its partnership with AH&LA, the magazine is able to tap the expertise of the AH&LA’s many specialty committees — technology, marketing, security and loss prevention, human resources, and legal issues.”
We feel confident that with some solid focus on us in Lodging, we will gain some great exposure. Why not join the masses and get on board by advertising with us at a good introductory contract rate? Consider advertising with e*Concepts to promote your business, product, or services. We are growing rapidly and are in negotiations with several national hotel chains. We can easily help to augment your marketing needs in hotels, business establishments, trade shows – just about anywhere involving people. Many of our current locations have well over 500,000 visitors per year! That’s a lot of really great exposure.
So make a mental note to check us out in the March 2012 issue of Lodging. Of course, we’ll be sure to give you a friendly reminder — and maybe even a sneak preview. With 40,000 current readers of the publication, we’ll be looking for some solid feedback regarding e*Concepts. If we must say so ourselves, we’re confident that it will be positive!
