The Chinese, shoppers without frontiers... | East Coast Limousine Service | Scoop.it

Purveyors of European luxury brands, anticipating the arrival of this important clientele, stand ready to embrace it, whether by offering guided tours, in Mandarin, of flagship showrooms; providing backstage access to couture runway shows; or engaging in a variety of other flourishes tailored for the Chinese tourist-shopper.

 

In catering to the Chinese shopper, some European makers of luxury goods seek to leverage their brands’ heritage and savoir-faire by conducting tours of their landmark European stores — or even setting up museums in them, as Vuitton has done with its “Espace Culturel” on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Others organize invitation-only demonstrations of the craftsmanship that goes into the products, which companies and analysts say holds a particular appeal for Chinese visitors.

 

A Chinese tourist who returns home with a memorable experience to share can be a powerful ambassador for a brand.

 

We are dealing with a demographic, not a geography, so we need to think in nongeographic terms. Some brands have 150 store locations in China alone, but their cash registers are in Europe and the United States.

 

Chinese consumers’ embrace of the Internet and social media platforms like Sina Weibo has also increased access to information about luxury goods abroad, allowing them to comparison shop before they even board a plane. Applications like Weixin let people share their foreign shopping experiences in real time, check prices and send photos as they weigh their purchases — or even take orders on behalf of friends back home.

Armed with these digital tools, a growing number of Chinese travelers, particularly younger ones, are forgoing the classic group tours and venturing abroad independently. That trend, with the ban on commission-subsidized tours, is driving more tourists to explore beyond the big European flagship stores in the fanciest districts.

Forget geography and focus on the Global Shopper based on their nationality, wherever he shops...

simonetta marvaldi's curator insight, February 8, 6:36 AM

"A Chinese tourist who returns home with a memorable experience to share can be a powerful ambassador for a brand, said Philip Guarino, co-founder of the consulting firm Emerging Market Luxury Advisors.

“You are dealing with a demographic, not a geography, so you need to think in nongeographic terms,” Mr. Guarino said. “Some brands have 150 store locations in China alone,” he said. “But their cash registers are in Europe and the United States.”

Australia is the most popular country on Instagram!

Australia is the most popular country on Instagram! | East Coast Limousine Service | Scoop.it

Australia has a new claim to fame: being the most popular country in the world on Instagram.

The official tourism Australia page @Australia has just amassed over one million followers, making it easily the most followed national destination page in the world.

The page, which is run by a small team of social media experts, has blown the completion out of the water, with it's British counterpart carrying only 131,000 followers, and the New Zealand account having only 30,000.

It features stunning images of quintessentially Australian icons like Kangaroos, Koalas and distinctly rugged landscapes, with many of the images garnering over 50,000 likes.

 

Tourism Australia's social media team has published a presentation outlining how it uses its @Australia Instagram page to inspire the world to travel to and through Australia. This can be viewed at http://www.slideshare.net/TourismAustralia

Some of the land scape pictures on this Instagram page make it easy to see why it is the most popular country on Instagram. The wild life also make this place look like an incredible place to visit. I also notices the different types of trees there. If I were to just look at this page not knowing that this was all in the same country, I would not say that most of these pictures were taken place.

Olivier P. Soares's curator insight, December 16, 7:13 AM

Excellent presentation of Australia's presence and success on instagram.

Amanda Morgan's curator insight, December 16, 10:12 PM

It is not surprising that Australia is the most popular country on instagram with all of its amazing sites and beautiful attractions.  Social media is becoming increasingly influential and virtual seeing the world through a cell phone suddenly makes it smaller, while it also advertises for  tourism.

HOTELS 2015 Forecast: Talking tech | East Coast Limousine Service | Scoop.it

While Facebook posts and Twitter feeds aren’t going to stop showing up on hoteliers’ marketing to-do lists, experts contend the operational models of “sharing economy” sites like Airbnb mean hotel companies need a seismic shift in their thinking. That starts with upping the ante on all aspects of the mobile experience.  - See more at: http://www.hotelsmag.com/Industry/News/Details/54924#sthash.CzA8eTCj.dpuf

Majority of Digital Travel Researchers Will Be Mobile by Next Year - eMarketer | East Coast Limousine Service | Scoop.it
2015 will be the tipping point: Half of digital travel researchers will check out flights, hotels and more not only on a desktop or laptop PC but also (or only) via mobile, eMarketer predicts. And smartphones are more commonly used for both researching and booking travel than tablets.

Olivier P. Soares's curator insight, November 28, 7:18 PM

Every year, mobile keeps on raising the bar higher.  What I would like to know in these statistics is what is the actual share of travel booking that are performed by the big players (Priceline, world hotel chains..) compared to independent or small players. 

This would be relevant and interesting stats to follow year on year.


Anyone can point me to any study as sort ?
