SALES REPORT

A Message from Executive Director
Randy Randall

Randy Randall, Executive Director


November is here – I hope everyone had great summer and fall seasons. Visitation to the city during the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta reached record numbers as determined by Rail Runner ridership, Visitor Center traffic and general observations of the volume of visitors on the Plaza. Indigenous People’s Day, held October 9 on the plaza, had outstanding crowds all day long with dancing performed by seven different tribes and wonderful presentations by the Mayor, Archbishop and Native American dignitaries. Next year we are already planning on expanding it to a three day event with four hours of dancing daily on Saturday and Sunday along with the major celebration on Monday.

All that being said, occupancy at city hotels has been down a bit in July, August and September. Exactly why we are not sure, but from the perspective of TOURISM Santa Fe we are following the same marketing and sales path that has resulted in a 25% increase in lodger’s tax collections over the past three years. We thought it might be the economic issues related to the drop in oil and gas along with the weather issues in Houston, but visitation from Texas has held close to last year and is up over two years ago. We do believe that the continuing growth of the short term rental alternative to hotels continues to adsorb any increase in demand and even pulls a bit away from our downtown properties.

The outlook for the winter remains fairly flat to last year. Weather is always a factor that affects the winter market as many of our potential vacationers are seeking our great mountain snow and skiing without long lift lines. We are also dealing with a 30 day legislative session shortening the benefit we receive when the government meets. These factors provide an opportunity for additional meeting business for many of our hotels that our national sales managers are focused on filling. We need to work together to be aggressive in reaching out to new and repeat visitors and share the wonder of Santa Fe.
