We are almost in one of the busiest and, in our opinion, one of the coziest periods of the year for the hospitality industry. And we can finally welcome guests for Christmas again!

Most hotels and restaurants are already busy thinking about the decorations, we have even seen the most beautiful Christmas hotel of the Netherlands on Instagram, ready to receive their guests! We have also seen a lot of newsletters with delicious menus and it’s great to notice that ordering Christmas dinners to go remains possible at many restaurants in addition to reserving a table! Last year we created a digital Christmas inspiration booklet with the biggest trend of that year; the ‘Christmas drive thru’. Of course we had to create another list this year, including the recurring ‘tree lighting’ ceremony, looking on Pinterest for your decorations, Christmas atmosphere in your hotel room, an ‘Electric Bingo’ in Christmas atmosphere and much more Christmas inspiration.

HosPETality | Examples of pet-friendly gestures

  • A thermal dedicated dog pool at Lifestyle & Thermal retreat FonteverdeA thermal dedicated dog pool at Lifestyle & Thermal retreat Fonteverde

A couple of weeks ago we spotted the great term HosPETality and because we travel with our family & office dog, Labradoodle Jimmy, we spot a lot of examples of pet-friendly gestures. In hotels you have to pay a small fee for the dog but mostly you get a bowl, doggy pillows and if the dog is lucky, a treat! It already starts with the reservation, we booked a stay at a hotel in Spain and because we gave notice of our dog and asked them to book a table for dinner, they emailed us that they booked us a table at the terrace so Jimmy could accompany us for dinner. Just thoughtfull! We made a list of very great small gestures hotels and restaurants can implement.

SweeTARTS®, the iconic brand that has been encouraging fans to live their most colourful lives and ‘Be Both’, understands the best storytellers aren’t just traditional filmmakers. They’re nurses who can sing acapella, students with a knack for thrift-store finds, or skateboarders who dabble in cooking, all with a shared passion for creating content from their everyday lives that sparks impactful emotions. To elevate the unique talents of these storytellers across the country, SweeTARTS is reimagining the typically exclusive award show concept by hosting the first branded Film Fest on TikTok.

Great idea to create a TikTok contest for your own club, restaurant chain or bar if you want to  engage young people with your brand. Done right it will push your amount of followers on TikTok and who knows it might interest young people that didn’t visit your place before. In the past we spotted similar ideas for Instagram.
