Going up, going down: Spring edition

This season we're saying goodbye to pre-poured bubbles and hello to pink drinks.

GOING UP

 

BULK-SIZE AMENITIES

Hotels are switching from single-use mini amenities to large, refillable bottles. But these sustainable alternatives are nothing short of stylish – take Ovolo Hotels for example, which has designed custom bottles with cheeky song lyrics on the labels.

 

SIGNATURE SCENTS

Tap into a new sense and develop a custom scent for your conference or event, or host a perfume workshop for a team-building activity with a difference.

 

 

INCLUSIVE TECH

A wave of new technology is making events more inclusive for all attendees, such as live captioning for those with deafness, hearing difficulty or learning challenges.

 

 

PINK DRINKS

Pink is having a moment in the beverage biz, thanks to warmer weather and the fact that they make for a killer Instagram shot. Expect to see pink gin cocktails and rosé on the menu this spring.

 

 

GOING DOWN

 

IMPOSSIBLE-TO-FIND POWER POINTS

There’s nothing more frustrating than having to search high and low in your hotel room for somewhere to plug in your phone charger, and finally discovering it behind the bed in an impossible spot to reach.

 

MINI BARS

Say goodbye to $8 chocolate bars and $5 waters, mini bars are getting a reboot (and some are getting the boot altogether). Many hotels now offer a limited range of complimentary drinks and snacks, while others are removing them completely.

 

PRE-POURED BUBBLES

We understand the practical reasons for pre-pouring drinks for cocktail events, but Champagne is one that should be poured on demand. Don’t ruin our sacred bubbles!
