The highest demand period for reservations at hotels on Santorini will be shifted this year, according to an extensive study carried out by the data analysis department of Panadvert, an online performance marketing company that provides integrated digital advertising and marketing solutions.
Further data processing also showed a significant increase of demand in hotel reservations for September and October 2018.
“Accurate forecasting is a valuable tool enabling hoteliers and travel industry professionals to appropriately manage revenue, allocate resources, and set pricing and targeting strategies while also providing insights towards identifying a destination’s marketing opportunities,” Panadvert said in an announcement.
The study’s primary objective was to predict the upcoming demand for hotel reservations on the WebHotelier booking engine for a number of tourism destinations and top markets.
Santorini was selected due to the large statistical sample available to Panadvert (23,483,039 queries for 398 properties).
“The main outcomes of our analysis were the prediction of demand for hotel services in total numbers, demand seasonality, how it varies from year to year, as well as the rise of new markets/countries,” Panadvert said.
