Hotels in the Far Eastern Federal District are preparing for price reductions due to coronavirus

The Federation of restaurateurs and hoteliers calculated that in Russian hotels a reduction in prices of 50-60% is possible due to the coronavirus, and the total damage to the tourism industry will exceed 100 billion rubles. The first consequences of the epidemic will be felt by hoteliers in the Far East.  

According to the Federation’s estimates, at first the price reduction will affect hotels targeted at Chinese tourists, and then other hotels will connect to them. According to "Izvestia", the damage will be noticeable in the coming months: citizens of China amounted to 1/3 of all visitors to Russia. According to EastRussia, in one of the largest hotels in Khabarovsk, according to the results of February, the tourist flow decreased by 6%, but the forecast for March is even worse.

“We have reduced the number of organized tourist groups by 25%, more and more tourist groups are canceling reservations. And those groups that do come are much smaller in number. But along with this, the number of individual travelers is growing, so we will reorient ourselves to them. Although the forecast for March is still alarming, "- said a representative of one of the hotels in Khabarovsk.

To increase the attractiveness of the Khabarovsk Territory for tourists, an international forum is planned to be held at the Khabarovsk Association of Hoteliers. It will take place in May in the regional capital.

“The forum will have two sessions. We will consider legislative issues, marketing strategies, conflict resolution. But besides this, we want to show the attractiveness of the Khabarovsk Territory, tell us what events we have, as well as the fact that despite viruses, we live, work and will work, "- the Khabarovsk Hoteliers Association shared their plans.
