Success in the hotel business is governed by the RevPar rate: the amount of revenue the hotel generates per available room per month. To succeed, you need to fill as many of your rooms as possible at the maximum possible rate. The challenge is this: if you fill all of your rooms all of the time, the rooms begin to show signs of wear. And if you want to raise rates as much as possible, you have to have quality rooms with the latest technology and equipment. To keep the rooms fresh and modern, you have to refurbish them regularly. How do you maintain revenue and occupancy while still keeping your rooms and conference facilities above market standard?
At the 2018 Thanksgiving Ball, AmCham members and their guests pledged CZK 267,300 during the Silent Auction.
