During this holiday season of reflection and celebration, the entire Inside Hospitality Solutions team would like to thank you for joining us for the start of our venture.
We created IHS as a digital marketing and media company for hospitality professionals to learn about products, services, and organizations to improve operations and guest experience.
As we were preparing for our April 2021 launch, the devastating effect of the Covid pandemic on the hospitality industry made us realize that we had to do something to help our colleagues and the hospitality community, so we purposely made two major financial decisions:
• Our site and content would be free for all to access; and
• We would charge organizations ridiculously reasonable rates to join IHS, allowing us to produce and promote both written and video marketing content for their brand and services.
These decisions benefit the community and have contributed to the success we’ve experienced in 2021. In just a few short months:
• We built a global team of award-winning writers and videographers, digital animators, technology specialists, marketing experts and media reporters.
• Our reach has grown to over 8,000 individuals that make or influence purchasing decisions within the hospitality industry.
• Several of the organizations that signed up to list on our Supplier Network in 2021 did so at the Premium level.
• Our LinkedIn followers have grown consistently at a double-digit monthly pace.
We are looking forward to 2022 as we continue to inform, educate, and engage hospitality professionals with helpful content about innovative products, services and solutions.
Thank you for being a part of the IHS community. We wish you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season and a healthy, happy, safe and prosperous 2022!
Yuri Duncan, Rich Paliwoda and the entire Inside Hospitality Solutions team
