    • EDITORIAL E HOSTELTUR, the WTM’s new media partner H osteltur, Spain’s leading communication medium in professional tourism information, is premiering its role as the World Travel Market’s media partner this year.

    • Turespaña’s new marketing strategy PR Everyone realises it: “I need Spain” The emerging market strategy focuses on the product line through a product seg- mentation campaign and the proposal to rediscover Spain through experiences. A segmented offer There are a multitude of experiences, because Spain has much to offer for all interests and ages: from sun and sand tourism, a product that targets families, couples without children, seniors and young people, to the wellness offer, mee- tings segment, gay tourism and soft cul- tural tourism, including urban or nightlife tourism, among other products. There is also a “hard” cultural tourism offer made up of art offerings, museums, exhibitions and festivals. Special attention is also be- ing paid to products of special interest, which include language tourism for lear- ning Spanish, visits of religious interest and shopping, an aspect with many pos- sibilities in Spain’s different cities.

    • A flurry of hotel openings despite the crisis T he tourism sector has responded to the current economic crisis with the inauguration of a large number of hotels this year, both in Spain and abroad. Most chains have expanded or renovated their establishments to update their offerings with a view to improved operations at the dawn of the twenty-first century. And all this despite the fact that hotel investment fell 25% in 2009 (compared to 50% in Europe), because of the difficulty in obtaining credit. Investment stood at 540 million Euros last year, according to the European Hotel Market study by BNP Paribas, which foresees a 27% rebound this year, a prediction that seems will be proven accurate. The city of Madrid enhanced its offer with a 85-room themed es- tablishment devoted to film buffs: the DormirDCine Cooltural Room, located on Calle Príncipe de Vergara. In April, AC Hotels opened its tenth hotel in the capital, the 161-room AC Atocha, near the train station of the same name. The Solva Hotels Group inaugurated the five-star, 63-room Gran Hotel Nagari Boutique & Spa in a historic building in the heart of Vigo (Galicia) and in March, the Palafox chain opened the five-star Hotel Hotel Cap Rocat, Mallorca.

    • Some 20,000 hotels have now signed up for the new tourism database developed in Spain T he tourism database, which was launched a year ago and has been up and running since early 2010, is now spreading to establishments all across Europe, Latin America and Asia and to date, some 20,000 of them have now signed up for the open application intended to facilitate their identification, especially in all matters relating to e- commerce, whether B2B or e-commerce for the final customer.

What made this flight different to the other four weekly frequencies operated by Iberia was the Business Club Class: it was the first flight with the newly-launched Premium class on the Spanish airline’s medium haul routes: not only from Madrid to Malabo, but also on Iberia operations to Cairo, Lagos, Moscow and Tel Aviv. One of the most important features of the Business Club Class is its new exclusi- ve seat. The 14-seat Business Club section has two seats on each side, and 1.27 me- tres of separation between rows. The extra- large, 55-cm-wide seats are of completely new design, with adjustable backs, head rests (four positions), leg rests and foot Iberia Business Club Class will be available on A319 aircraft used on flights to Cairo, Lagos, Business Club is available in the A319 aircraft that flies to Cairo, Lagos, Malabo, Moscow Malabo, Moscow and and Tel Aviv Tel Aviv 2010 will be remembered as a busy year for Iberia.

    • Geo-positioning basically consists in superimposing routes, people, objects and all kinds of information on virtual maps. Geo-tagging, in turn, is defined as the process of adding geographical informa- tion (coordinates that define latitude, lon- gitude and even height) in metadata files such as video, images and websites, etc., to serve as geo-referencing, i.e., for find- ing a location on a map. And this may be a bit complicated in the beginning, since it is strictly a little known novelty that offers extensive sport and leisure possibilities that no cycling en- thusiast should miss. Consulting it is easy, because the information is structured on files that will be posted on various web- sites through freevel.com’s API or can be downloaded in electronic PDF format or printed out directly. These websites correspond primarily to public administrations, local agencies, sport corporations, private entities, busi- ness parks and tourism companies, such as hotels, agri-tourism or sports centres. And what they will offer their customers and users is access to geo-positioned with the arrival of summer, although it may the former case, many hotels are striving to routes to travel down on road or mountain be too much for cyclists.

    • The archipelago recovers its leading origin market British tourists returning to the Canaries The year’s figures demonstrate the recovery the Canary Islands are undergoing in what remains its leading origin market. British tourists travel to the Canaries all year round, with little seasonality in demand, motivated by the archipelago’s enviable climate. I ndeed, the British market is evolving very positively in 2010, despite the economic crisis. From January to August, more than 2.06 million British tourists visited the Ca- naries, a figure that represents an increase of 12.67% over the same period in 2009. In August in particular, 287,040 British tourists arrived, 30.39% more than the same month last year. The Canary Government expects an increase of 7% this winter. The Canary Minister of Tourism, Rita Martín, says that the Canaries are currently spearheading Spain’s tourism recovery. In fact, as regards the UK market, “we can say that reservations to the Canary Islands have risen 7%, while the rest of Spain and the Balearics are experiencing slumps of 1% and 9%.” In 2009, despite the decline in this market in different Spanish destinations, the United Kingdom remained the Canaries’ most im- portant origin market, originating 33.5% of all tourist arrivals to the islands, nearly 2.23 million visitors, a figure that represented a drop of 10.84%. The Minister of Tourism in the Canary Islands affirms that compared with com- peting destinations, British tourists “value our climate, sunshine, safety and top-notch range of accommodations managed by top professionals. They believe that ease of Anfi del Mar beach in Mogan, located southwest of Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. transfer, our destination and price are also (Photograph: Tourist Board of Gran Canaria). important”. 46 Special WTM · November 2010
    • Gran Canaria’s traditional tourists B ritish tourism is a traditional market for Gran Canaria and the origin of the development of tourism on the island; hence its fundamental importance to the sector. According to statistics from the Minis- try of Tourism, Gran Canaria welcomed 695,246 visitors last year, while it re- ceived 438,057 until the month of August, down 5%. In addition to participating in all major industry trade shows held in the UK, in- cluding the World Travel Market, Gran Canaria is promoting the destination and its products through presentations to pro- fessional associations such as the ABTA and AITO, fam trips and press trips and promotional agreements with airlines. The Minister of Tourism of Gran Canar- ia, Roberto Moreno Díaz, points out that especially “the sun and sand product is the main attraction for this particular mar- ket, as are products such as nature tour- ism, which is linked to our volcanic origin; centrate its activities in the UK market to Lanzarote come from the UK.

    • Tenerife, a complete destination B ritish tourism is a strategic market for Tenerife, with a 31% share of all foreign visitors to the island. The climate, beaches and warm weather still figure among the preferences of these visitors, who only take four hours to travel from the UK and have daily flights at their disposal. “Tenerife is a comprehensive destination for everyone: it has a fantastic range of qual- ity accommodations and the range of leisure activities is exceptional. The most important thing is that visitor satisfaction has risen, thanks to the improvements that have been implemented at the destination. The British loyalty to Tenerife is very strong, so it is nec- essary to continue improving our infrastructure,” affirm the island’s tourism authorities. In 2009, Tenerife received nearly 1.34 million British tourists, 12.3% fewer than in the preceding year, a situation that has reversed itself during the first eight months of 2010. Until August, 921,104 British tourists visited the island, an increase of 6.71% over the same period last year. Summer slots in 2010 rose by 23.33%. The provision of slots for the 2010/11 winter season points to a further increase of 2%. Tenerife has a comprehensive and varied tourism offer: culture, cuisine, fiestas, fam- ily, luxury, golf, hip and trendy - the fashion destination - adventure, nature, sun and and wine products.

Between January and August 2010, the island received 256,102 tourists, 24.76% more than in the same period of 2009. The main factor in this recovery has been the successful attraction of leading car- riers, such as Monarch Airlines, Easyjet, Aer Lingus and Ryanair, on routes be- tween Spain and the United Kingdom. Fuerteventura centres its promotional strategy on attracting family tourism, nautical tourism, birders and nature lov- ers, without overlooking the fact that its strengths are its beaches and excellent climate all year round.

W ith nearly 2.14 million British tourists in 2009, the Community of Valencia was Spain’s fourth-leading destination for this source market. This figure represents 41.9% of the region’s total for- eign demand and makes the UK its most important origin market.

This negative growth has continued in 2010, but has slowed down. Up to August 2010, the number of British tourists in this re- gion had fallen 9% compared with the same period in the preceding year. The British market is among the priorities in terms of passenger volume for the Community of Valencia and its brands and destinations, above all Benidorm, which is a major objective of the annual marketing plan and the target of half of all promotional efforts.

F rom January to June 2010, 1,389,712 foreign visitors came to Cuba, 1% more than in the previous year. In all, 1,377,864 were classified as tourists and 11,848 classified as excursion- ists whose stays were shorter than 24 hours and included cruise passengers, day visitors and crews. This information has been extracted from reports published by the Cuban National Bureau of Statistics. As for the sources of visitors by geographical region, the behav- iour was similar to past performances: America contributed 68%, followed by Europe (30%); Eastern/Pacific Asia, Africa, Southern Asia and the Middle East, in that order, provided the remaining 2%. In the hotel sector, there were 9,488,597 overnight stays by for- eign guests in accommodations establishments, 1.8% more than in the first half of 2009, and the average occupancy rate was 51%, calculated on the basis of the existing lodging capacity. Canada contributed 49% of these overnight stays, followed by Italy, Spain, Germany, Mexico, the UK, France and Argentina in that order. It should be noted that these markets are ordered in terms of overnight stays, not entry by borders, since it depends on whether the tourists stayed in tourist establishments or not. In keeping with the traditional behaviour, 62% of the overnight stays in Cuba from January to June 2010 were recorded in lodgings in the country’s western provinces, 23% in the central provinces and 15% in the east. Given the importance of Varadero, the province of Matanzas accounted for 43% of these overnight stays, followed by Havana and Holguín, with 14% and 11% respectively. The profile of travelers who visited Cuba during the first six months of the year was characterised by the following indicators. Gender proportions were exactly par - 50% men and 50% women - and tourists in the age range between 25 and 44 predominated with 37%, followed by the 45 to 59 age group (30%) 60 and over 58 Special WTM · November 2010
