Ascott’s Brands and Expansion Plans for Philippines and Thailand - HD Video Interview

[HD video and podcast below] Exclusive HD video interview with Arthur Gindap, Regional General Manager of The Ascott - Philippines and Thailand.

In this interview, filmed on 16 November 2016 at the Ascott Makati in Manila, we ask Arthur where the group’s Crest Collection fits into Ascott’s portfolio of brands, which currently includes Ascott, Somerset, Citadines and Lyf - a new brand which was announced days after the interview.

We ask Arthur how 2016 compares to 2015 and what plans there are for 2017, what expansion plans the group has for both Philippines and Thailand, and in which areas.

We discuss what advantages there are for guests to stay in a serviced apartment compared to a regular hotel room, and what Mr. Gindap’s thoughts are on the evolution of in-room hotel technology and how Ascott plans to use it. You will also learn how the group has partnered Samsung and what this partnership will mean to Ascott’s serviced apartments of the future.

We discuss what threat, if any, Airbnb poses to the serviced apartment market, how the Philippines and Thailand compare, whether Ascott has any plans to launch a resort brand, and whether the group has any plans to launch an academy to help it recruit and train staff. We also discuss Ascott’s CSR initiatives in both Philippines and Thailand as well as much, much more.
