The Scottish Caravan, Motorhome & Holiday Home Show 2016

The Caravan Sitefinder team had great fun checking out what was on offer when we recently attended The Scottish Caravan, Motorhome & Holiday Home Show in Glasgow. During our time at the event we met many of our existing clients and also spoke to a lot of new ones.

There were two hundred exhibitors and a whole host of industry experts over the four day event. Stands at the show ranged from camping equipment/tools to different rental companies. The show is the perfect place for visitors to experience all of the fantastic holidaying in Scotland can offer as many people are choosing to holiday at home instead of travelling abroad.

The Scottish Caravan, Motorhome & Holiday Home Show was held in the SECC Glasgow and ran from Thursday 4th February to Sunday 7th February attracting many different kinds of visitors. The event showcased some of the latest models of Caravan & Motorhome. There was a separate family camping area where visitors could explore new tent collections from brands such as Vango, Kampa and Outwell as well as high quality camping accessories. There was a number of clubs and associations and holidays across of the UK.

Turnout and Venue

Day one of the show had a very strong turnout in visitors as well as exhibitors which lead to a great amount of exposure for all parks and manufacturers. The venue was placed throughout five halls inside the SECC, Glasgow each encompassing a different domain of the camping and caravanning industry.

If you’re just getting in to motorhoming but don’t have a vehicle yet, Motorhome Hire Scotland is a great place to get you started. They were in attendance of the show and we stopped by their stand to have a chat.

Whilst in the SECC we managed to get access into one of the top balconies. Here are some more pictures from the event:

Tourism in Dubai, which is one of seven emirates comprising the United Arab Emirates, grew by 8 percent from 2012 to 2016. In 2016, the emirate celebrated 14.9 million overnight visitors, a 5 percent increase from the previous year. Economists say the industry is expected to grow to 20 million overnight stays by 2020.

Vacation Bay Holiday Homes has listings throughout Dubai, including 15 in downtown Dubai, the city’s busiest tourism hub. The company’s mission is to help families and friends find the perfect vacation rental to create an experience that can be treasured forever.

There, crowds gather to watch light shows and musical performances near the towering Burj Khalifa skyscraper. Casual eateries and fashion stores in the sprawling Dubai Mall await travelers from around the world. Nearby is Jumeirah Palm Island, a tree-shaped retreat known for glitzy hotels, posh apartment towers and upmarket global restaurants and the affluent Dubai Marina. Many of Vacation Bay Holiday Homes’ short-stay offerings are focused on these areas and the overnight experience has to be right.

Fabna Sabeeh, co-founder and manager of data control at Vacation Bay Holiday Homes in Dubai, knows first hand the challenges of making sure everything runs smoothly for guests during periods of rapid growth.

A clear, complete view of operations

Kigo Operations Manager makes sure all of her bases are covered. Over time, the platform learns, adapts and automatically assigns turn and operations tasks, a boon for managing the fast pace of vacation rentals.

No worrying about neglected morning spreadsheets or unsecured unit information. By synchronizing all the property management staff’s calendars on every platform from Outlook to iCal, everybody is on the same page so the flow of incoming and outgoing guests isn’t disrupted.

With Kigo’s multi-unit support system, Sabeeh’s managers have updated information across every site so they never miss another welcome event or housekeeping need at the 100-plus properties the company manages as part of Vacation Bay Holiday Homes in Dubai. Combined with a mobile maintenance app, it’s a powerful one-two combination for managing the influx of tourism the emirate is experiencing.

Staying synchronized and in touch with housekeeping, maintenance

Uniformity and consistency in maintaining vacation homes is key, and inconsistent housekeeping standards can be detrimental to the reputation of a vacation rental home. First-rate housekeeping must be maintained and staff held accountable with a streamlined inspections process. Kigo Marketplace provides checklists, monitoring, service requests and other capabilities that help maintenance and housekeeping staffs consistently deliver a clean, memorable destination.

Vacation Bay Holiday Homes relies on Kigo to keep maintenance and housekeeping personnel stay in step.

“The operations management platform was one reason for using Kigo,” said Sabeeh, who visited KigoWorld in April to learn more about the product. “Our housekeeping team is able to view the schedules on time and with the mobile app, the maintenance team can also be reached on time. It’s really helping a lot.”

Staying a step ahead of Dubai’s tourism growth

Kigo Operations Manager allows property managers to focus on generating more bookings by organizing the operations side of the business. Organized workflows lead to increased productivity which helps grow business.

Sabeeh has been pleased since transitioning to the software four years ago and is depending on it so Vacation Bay Holiday Homes can stay a step ahead of the Dubai’s tourism industry, which is about 5 percent of the emirate’s total economy.

“We hope it will definitely grow our business to the next level.”

Baron Holiday Homes made a sizable investment decision a few years ago to better compete in the vacation rental business on the small island of Gozo just off Malta. The company leapt far from its modest beginnings in 1995 of eight properties with a vow to grow its portfolio while maintaining the island’s rich architectural heritage.

Baron Group Malta, which operates Baron Holiday Homes, extended its vacation rental home business model by building and selling a network of vacation rental homes that could be managed while owners weren’t staying in them.

Meticulous care was taken when designing and building the residences, situated in prime locations in village cores – some centuries old – and on the outskirts, with spectacular views. Unique features were incorporated into the residences to retain the character and mystique of a culture that dates to 5000 BC. In some, functional living environments were merged with old farmhouse features like mill rooms and barns to combine a pleasant and well-designed atmosphere with a typical Gozitan setting.

Rising to new heights with synchronized vacation rental management

Today, Baron Holiday Homes embodies 79 properties. It has become a leader of vacation rental homes in a big way on the 41-square miles of Gozo nestled in the Mediterranean. Properties are loaded with amenities and most have air-conditioning and private pools.

Baron Holiday Homes provides an array of services, from car hire and airport transfers to land and sea excursions, and staff trained to attend to individual needs. Each property is managed by a dedicated team of rental representatives, maintenance and pool technicians, maids and gardeners who work together to effectively manage the properties.

In addition to a staff that is focused on ensuring the best possible experience for every visitor, Kigo Channel Manager has been a key partner in managing the properties, company officials say. The software has helped staff go about the business of renting luxury vacation accommodations with seamless execution. The company can avoid the potential pitfalls of moving thousands of vacation rental guests through properties each year.

“Kigo Channel Manager has given us peace of mind that our availability is synchronized 100 percent to avoid overbooking and clients showing up when the home is not ready,” said Baron Holiday Homes Reservations Manager Donald Said (pronounced “side”). “Availability syncing was a very big part.”

Maximizing property exposure to vacation rental guests

Synchronizing and updating calendars while merging and managing online bookings and inquiries into one universal reservation system is Kigo’s forte.

Kigo’s Channel Manager is the channel hub of Kigo Marketplace, allowing property managers to connect to millions of travelers all over the world. They serve both general and niche markets, empowering companies to reach vacation rental guests from a range of interest groups around the world.

Channel Manager aims to maximize property exposure in marketplaces big and small. This is just what Baron Holiday Homes needed after increasing its management portfolio to nine times its size with a very attractive set of vacation rental homes.

Said noted that Channel Manager’s ability to help maintain competitive rental rates across all portals has been a particular benefit.

“We have our rates synched, which allows us to create special offers,” he said. “That helps us fill in nights that are available.”

Optimizing property investments for owners

Getting the most rental dollars possible is critical for the property owners who depend on Baron Holiday Homes to fill vacancies and achieve a solid return on investment.

It’s just as critical for Baron Holiday Homes, which celebrated its 20th year in business in 2015, to maintain high occupancies.

The company guarantees rental income of 5 percent of the property’s purchase price for a minimum of five years. Baron Holiday Homes is responsible for all aspects concerning the rental of the property, including marketing and maintenance management.

“We have grown over these years, and I can say that Kigo was a big part of our growth,” he said.
