How much tourist accommodation does Perth have? - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

How much tourist accommodation does Perth have? - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) | AHA RSA | Scoop.it
Bradley Woods's insight:
Tourism Accommodation Australia is calling for the compulsory registration of all Airbnb properties. The accommodation arm of the Australian Hotels Association not only wants registration so there are accurate statistics on the number of properties, but also so Airbnb is captured by the same regulatory and taxation net as its members, including hotels and serviced apartments.

Digital economy puts pressure hotels and the taxi industry to adapt | watoday.com.au

Digital economy puts pressure hotels and the taxi industry to adapt | watoday.com.au | AHA RSA | Scoop.it
Bradley Woods's insight:
Australian Hotels Association WA CEO Bradley Woods said it was the government's regulatory system that was lagging behind the digital economy."The problem is not the digital economy, the issue is the government's system hasn't caught up with this new technology," he said.Mr Woods said untaxed, unregulated short-term accommodation operating in the same market as heavily-regulated, heavily-taxed hotels damaged the reputation of the hotel industry."The effect is that it undermines and damages employment investment and the professional standards of tourism accommodation in Perth and Western Australia," he said.But Mr Woods was hopeful hotels would survive because the two markets attracted different kinds of customers."People who specifically want all service such as room service and breakfast and such will choose hotels, while those who don't care about these services will choose the short-term lettings."

Businesses forced to look overseas for staff

Businesses forced to look overseas for staff | AHA RSA | Scoop.it
PICKY jobseekers are leaving WA restaurants and bars with a shortage of workers, despite the state having the second highest jobless rate in the country.
Bradley Woods's insight:
Australian Hotel Association WA chief executive Bradley Woods said the labour shortage was evident throughout Perth, as well as in Bunbury and the Kimberley.Perth’s unemployment rate was 6 per cent in June, with 68,100 people out of work, while Bunbury was at 6.2 per cent and parts of the Kimberley more than 10 per cent.A search of jobs website Seek this week returned 570 jobs in “hospitality and tourism” across WA.That included 338 “chef” jobs and 73 for “waiter”.“Hospitality, it’s hard work and people have to work nights and weekends, some people aren’t prepared to do that,” Mr Woods said. “Internationally we have the highest wage rates in the world for hospitality workers, even with those high wage rates it’s hard to attract those people.”Mr Woods said the decline in the number of working holiday visas made the shortage worse. The 20 per cent decline of backpackers coming into WA in the past year had affected the availability of labour.

Australian Hotels Association WA CEO Bradley Woods said this is a great thing for hotels.“We’re very pleased with the outcome. The more the better. There will always be a percentage of idiots, and we’d rather not have them in licensed venues.”Woods says the AHA WA has encouraged Government since the scheme’s introduction in 2010 to exercise greater use of the law, and the Association is now pushing to have it expanded to include people committing offenses in the street or vicinity of licensed premises.“The AHA has lobbied for licensees to have more powers to nominate people that should receive a ban,” Woods continued.“Operators need to have more legal backing than simply common law if preventing someone entry to their venue is going to have any effect. $10,000.
