VFM Leonardo, recognized expert in online visual merchandising for hotels, recently launched the Merchandising Heroes program to showcase hotels and hoteliers that demonstrate excellence in online merchandising and lead the way for others. The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Modesto is VFM Leonardo’s latest Merchandising Hero.
Behind the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Modesto’s online merchandising strategy is Central Valley Hotels’ Vice President, Rupesh Patel. Being an experienced hotel marketer, Patel realizes the value of his hotel’s visual presence online. Through VBrochure he ensures that travel consumers experience his hotel in a rich and visually engaging manner on hiexpress.com, hiesmodesto.com as well as all the online travel agency, media, review and social sites used throughout the travel planning process.
“Online shoppers are shopping more than ever. If there’s anything about a hotel’s online display that gives the consumer a comfortable experience in reserving a room, its videos,” said Patel in an interview with VFM Leonardo.
