A new MEGAMAN® sponsored survey* of hospitality professionals has found that lighting is an integral part of the package when it comes to encouraging guests to stay longer and make repeat visits to a restaurant, hotel or bar.
Hospitality lighting matters!
Good lighting encourages guests to stay longer and come back for more
43% of those surveyed have been involved in a lighting refurbishment in their present or previous venue and said:
Education still needed about the benefits of LEDs
Fred Bass, Managing Director of Neonlite International Ltd, the brand owner of MEGAMAN®, comments: “This survey supports what we are seeing in our day to day business within the hospitality sector – good quality lighting is appreciated and a well lit scheme attracts customers who stay longer and spend more. However, the one area where I think we are at the cusp of a tipping point is in the understanding of the benefits of LEDs amongst the majority of those in the hospitality sector. Although half of those surveyed say that they think the banning of halogen lights and introduction of LED equivalents would be positive, there are still another half who are unsure. As more and more bars, restaurants and hotels experience the benefits of the latest in LED lighting technology, I believe we will see a dramatic see-change in favour of LEDs.”
