[HD video below] Exclusive HD video interview with the Founder & CEO of Miners Hospitality, Mr. Mendes O. Cavin.
In this interview, filmed at The Monttra Pattaya resort in Thailand on 29 August 2016, Mr. Cavin tells us about his company and its plans for the future.
We ask Mr. Cavin about the company name, where it comes from, and whether it could cause any possible confusion with Thailand's largest hospitality company, Minor Hotels Group.
The Monttra Pattaya resort only opened in December 2015, so we ask Mr. Cavin about the first eight months, which overseas visitors it is attracting, what plans he has for the restaurant and what are some of its USPs.
We also ask how the property has been affected by the expansion of Pattaya's U-Tapao Airport and which routes Mr. Cavin would like to see airlines launch from there.
We discuss the company's expansion plans, what its three projects in Indonesia are about, where they will be and when they will open.
You will also learn about a very exciting project in Myanmar, as well as what the two new hotels in Pattaya are going to be like and what innovative high-tech features they will have.
Mr. Cavin tells how the properties will be branded, his thoughts on travel trade shows and marketing in general, and how many hotels the company is hoping to have open by end-2020.
Finding and retaining quality staff is a major topic and challenge for the hospitality industry and as such we ask Mr. Cavin about Miners Unite, what it has accomplished so far, how people can get involved and what its expansion plans are.
All that and much, much more in the HD video interview below.
