Season’S Luxury Hotels Representation was founded by Julie Zeldich in 2007. Before that since 2002 she has been representing some of luxury hotels individually.
Now Season'S Luxury Hotels Representation provides sales and public relations representation in Russia and CIS countries for luxury hotels. We work with vip-agencies and luxury press of CIS countries (Russia (mostly), Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Baltic countries). We have two brands of activities: Public Relations where we work with the best media and Sales – we don't sell ourselves, but we help to make the reservations and stimulate good sales by touristic agencies, tour operators and other business providers. Also we give great value of collaboration with private banking service, VIP-concierge service agencies, etc. – as number of direct clients booking increases a lot every year.
We have our own specialist database with many personal media contacts, which we constantly maintain and develop.
Every project and every client is unique for us. Our strategy for each hotel is done very individually, in tailor made style, our activities are well thought out, that is why we have good results. Initially, we analyze how is the image of the hotel at the moment on our market, what PR and sales lacunas in the current situation on our market it has and which goals to achieve are desirable by the hotel, which clients it would like to get in the first place. According to this we develop a strategy to change this situation in the near future. As a rule, having a well developed strategy and following it, the situation changes significantly in the first year of operation. But it should be noted that our synergy with the hotel is very important for the result, that is, its willingness to provide us with the most detailed information and photos of the property, special offers for TA/TO if needed, to welcome journalists and pay attention to them, to create together with us themes for emailing, and so on.
