Video: Destsetters Workshop 2021 at 100% Hotel Show | The importance of Typology Study

Nowadays, the creation of a new hotel requires (prior to the involvement of the architect and the designers’ team), the execution of a complete Research about the area and the destination, that would lead to the finalization of the Typology that the new hotel product will have. During a 60-min Workshop at 100% Hotel Show 2021, Greece’s most upgraded fair for Hoteliers, Zenios Zeniou, Hotel Concept Maker at Destsetters, presented the meaning and key-objectives of the Typology Study, as well as its importance in specifying a new or under renovation project.

The presentation analyzed the various stages of the Typology Study, which include the Owners’ Study, the Destination Study, the Research on Online Searches and Trends, the Recording and Analysis of the Competition, and the resulting Executive Summary. At the last step, and based on the conclusions of the Executive Summary, the hotel experts present their specific Proposals regarding the new property’s type and potential layout, which provide a first approach to the final hotel product.

In order to easily understand the stages of the Typology Study, the presentation included also the presentation of the real case study of Sunrise Hotel in Zante Greece, an existing property that will be repositioned with a new identity and concept.

The Typology Study focuses on helping the hotel owners to better understand the direction that their investment should follow and at the same time is a valuable tool for the project’s architects and designers, who can use the Study as a guide during their work.
