This Week's BLLA Commentary

How Boutique is Changing?

Collaborations are trending like crazy. Working together with other brands is smart business when you can use each other’s strengths to tap into previously inaccessible markets. The hotel industry is taking inspiration from the fashion world, where collaborations are bigger than ever – from Rihanna’s partnership with Puma to Off-White collaborating with FWRD, and Louis Vuitton creating art on its handbags with Jeff Koons. In today’s world, it’s not always about you. Our culture is becoming less focused on the individual than about community and working together; and collaborations are a natural way to reflect this.

Another aspect part of how boutique is encapsulated in BLLA’s new catchphrases:

‘Boutique is not just a hotel, it’s an experience’
&
‘Any industry can join the community’

BLLA is gathering the next wave of boutique influencers at the Stay Boutique Leadership Conference in Los Angeles from October 3rd – 5th. Find out more about how the landscape is changing by JOINING US Oct. 3-5.

 How to take a branded hotel independent
 Going independent can be awfully appealing for a hotelier. No brand standards! No franchise fees! But before ending that agreement with a major corporation, a hotelier needs to carefully consider why he or she wants to go independent, and whether it will pay off in the long run.
