What are people saying?

As a hotel manager, it’s always good to have third parties assist us in looking for new ways to improve our business. No Vacancy is an eye-opener of inspiration and ideas to attract more guests.
— Ralf Luthe, General Manager, Samabe Resort, Bali

Guests are immune to traditional marketing techniques and the overuse of technology to reach them. They are searching for stories that are authentic and enhance their customer experience.

’No Vacancy’ is a great project that empowers hotel businesses to escape the traditional ‘think tank’ and build a brand that connects with guests in a language they connect with.
— Vincent Tung Tran - Head of Marketing, Minor Hotels, Vietnam

No Vacancy Guide is an essential tool for all hotels and accommodation providers - well done
