Your Hospitality Hub is an online magazine that seeks to inspire, educate, and entertain people in the accommodation, food & beverage, and service industry. Ultimately bringing about innovation and change into the lives of the Filipino hospitality professional. Our Ethos has always been to strive for excellence within the travel and hospitality world, through the sharing of good practice and opportunities for growth.
To that end, we provide many useful and informative articles that can greatly and positively impact their work environment and everyday life. In addition, the site also showcases resources such as job postings, classified ad postings and directory listings relevant to the hospitality field.
Being the first of its kind in the Philippines, it is our fervent wish to foster a close-knit community within the hospitality and service industry that builds upon the synergies of those who get involved.
Your Hospitality Hub is the brainchild of the people behind the travel and tours company Go Discover Travel a company which has always had the development of the Tourism market from the perspective of the small and medium sized business at the core of their business thinking.
Go Discover Travel were the first to bring an online travel agency to the Philippines complete with instant booking.
They were the first to promote the need for hotels to have their own websites and booking engines and made this technology, previously off limits to all but the large Hotel chains, affordable to all through their brand Hotel Link Solutions. Hotel Link Solutions now provides the full range of hotel sales and marketing and property management tools.
They have also been the first to bring the same booking and marketing technology to the tour industry in their Connectours product.
With decades worth of collective experience in the hospitality industry, it became apparent that there was no real support system for people like us.No specific guidebooks on how we could excel in our jobs, or how to deal with certain situations. We thought that with our knowledge and insight, our passion for the industry, and our hunger to learn and share, it was high time to come up with a website dedicated to helping out and bringing together those involved in hospitality.
Furthermore, we would like our readers not only to enjoy our articles, but to participate as subscribers in bringing the community together; be it as simple as giving an opinion or feedback on the articles, all the way to joining us in events and gatherings to humbly honour the people of service and hospitality.
This is just the beginning. We have great plans for Your Hospitality Hub.
So join in and let us work together for a great future in Hospitality in the Philippines.
Meet the Team
Helen Atanacio – Founder
A truly well seasoned veteran of the hospitality industry, Helen honed her skills from holding just about every position that was made available. It is this formidable collection of experience and knowledge that she brings to bear on behalf of her clients in the varied services she offers. Originally from Yorkshire England, Helen fell in love with her Filipino husband, who she met while they were both working on a cruise ship, and subsequently relocated to the Philippines in 1997. Along with starting Hotel Link Solutions and making hotel distribution, marketing and management tools affordable for independent hoteliers and tour operators, she has massive and unprecedented plans through the magazine, to help local hospitality professionals achieve global standards and beyond. Though she enjoys spicing it up with Latin dancing, Helen is happiest whenever she’s on the beach with a good book, watching her children play in the sand. They share their love of the outdoors with their husky Luke.
Rica Velasco – Hub Director
Renowned for her infectiously effervescent personality, Rica can give even the Energizer bunny a run for its money! This is exemplified on the dance floor where she is often the last person still grooving to the beat. She easily makes friends with those who share her love of rock and new wave music. Her other passions include traveling, being surrounded by nature, and the company of animals, dogs in particular (one dog she puts above the rest is her beloved dachshund). She brings to the table around 20 years of hard earned experience in the hotel, service and travel industry, holding positions in the Front Office, Reservations, and Sales & Marketing Departments in hotels, as well as having cruise ship and online travel agency experience under her belt. She is highly enthusiastic in this new endeavor to help people in the same field achieve the successes they deserve.
