Last week, Accor revealed its research on business travellers in the Asia-Pacific for the first half of 2012. Based on the group’s loyalty reward programme, it gained feedback through an online survey involving 2,586 people in nine countries in Asia Pacific. The study ran from 10 to 16 July. The top spend on business travel went to Singapore, followed by India and Hong Kong based on average length of stay and daily spend on accommodation. Across the Asia Pacific region, Hong Kong remained the top business travel destination, followed by Singapore, while Thailand gained recognition as an emerging destination in Southeast Asia. It gained positive feedback from respondents in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Malaysia and Singapore. The research also reflected trends in outbound travel, indicating 37% of Thai business travellers ,who responded to the survey, made business trips to Singapore (37%), Hong Kong (26%) and Malaysia (22%) during the first half of 2012. Travel trends for the second half of the year suggest 40% of Thai business travellers will visit Singapore, 34% Hong Kong and 28% Japan. Japan made gains during the first half of the year as a business travel destination, up from aranking of six to three.

India gained the lowest ranking in this segment with just 6% of those answering the survey. Average number of trips also increased in most markets except for Singapore . Thailand ranked fourth in generating trips, up from five to nine trips. The top three countries that had the most business trips in the first six-month of this year were China (nine to 17), India (seven to 13) and Indonesia (six to 10).
