Sample Hostel Pro Trends

Each Hostel PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online hostel articles, videos and images. Examples:

Crowdsourced Celebrity Everyday people are taking unconventional paths to fame Implications - Today's information age has fostered a culture of over-sharing, and those who share best are able to circumvent traditional avenues to fame. Millennial entrepreneurs are turning to platforms like YouTube and Tumblr to boost their personal brand, as well as cultivate opportunities and partnerships with bigger names. Rather than a flash-in-the-pan fad, this shift signals the possibility of long-term, mutually beneficial relationships between online personalities and top-tier brands.

Incentivized Gaming Brands engage consumers with mobile games that offer tangible rewards Implications - Pushing back against assertions that mobile gaming has no tangible benefit, brands have begun offering material rewards attained through sustained mobile play. With potential to be used as a means to digital community building or as a loyalty program for the Internet age, such apps can go a long way in terms of retaining the interest of the busy modern consumer.

In-Flight Customization Airlines integrate custom features to heighten passenger experiences Implications - Recognizing the need to cater consumers in a more targeted way, airline services are turning to in-flight customization tactics for individual allure. Allowing passengers to creatively adjust everything from the temperature to their seating arrangements, this shift in service helps add an experiential quality to travel. Such enhancements reflect a shift toward more flexibility when it comes to customer service, particularly during travel.

Economical Exploration Travel companies develop alternative payment methods for frugal consumers Implications - Seeking to appease sightseers on a budget, companies in the travel industry are developing alternative payment concepts that allow people to pay with personal skills and contributions. This is in step with consumer demands for discounts and exclusive offers.

Exhibitionist Browsing Retail concepts include active elements that empower consumers Implications - In blurring the line between retail location and athletic complex, brands and merchandisers can empower the consumer to visualize applications of the product in their daily life, regardless of their self-accessed athletic acumen. This progression speaks to the interest in customization, while also creating a dynamic in-store experience that makes high-performance athletic gear accessible to newcomers.

Metropolitan Fitness Fitness becomes more accessible with public locations Implications - Fitness culture may be rising, but many consumers are still resisting the confines of the gym. To combat this anti-gym attitude, many athletic brands have begun offering fitness services in public with city stations and pop-up locations. This approach not only makes fitness more accessible and easy to integrate into consumers' everyday routines, it also adds an experiential element to working out.

Flexible Membership Transferable passes encourage consumers to try new businesses Implications - Given the unpredictable schedule of the modern consumer, transferable membership passes that offer unlimited uses at various businesses offer flexibility and a higher value for cost. This emergence of transferable memberships also ties into the renewed interest in supporting local businesses, rather than subscribing to a large conglomerate brand, as well as adhering better to the ever-evolving lifestyle of millennials.

Entertrainment Gyms combine elements of fitness and play in an effort to entice Implications - As a response to the bevy of at-home fitness options enriched by modern technology, traditional gyms are expanding to offer elements of entertainment. By providing an emotive value to the workout experience, gyms can ensure that clients establish a connection to the brand and foster a sense of community in a way that feels natural and fun. This speaks to a new approach to fitness and health that is less reactive and more lifestyle-based.
