Mixed picture: Occupancy on the books in Barcelona and the Balearic Islands

Excerpt from STR

Barcelona was heavily impacted by a lack of its usual demand drivers, such as international travel and events. Back in March we saw larger spikes in hotel occupancy on the books around events such as the Mobile World Congress 2021 at the end of June and Seafood Expo 2021 in September. Both events either went to a hybrid format or were postponed, and as of 7 Junee, those spikes in hotel forward occupancy have fallen flat. On a more positive note, the summer months of July and August 2021 are trending higher than previously seen in March. Looking ahead to 2022, occupancy on the books does spike in February with Mobile World Congress expected to come back in its usual spot towards the end of February and a technology expo being hosted at the beginning of February.

As of 1 March 2021, hotel occupancy on the books for the Balearic Islands was building up gradually toward the summer months. However, as shown by the dip around the start of July, there was a lack of confidence in booking travel on a long lead time with the uncertainty around restrictions. Lead times remain short, but the outlook for the Balearics has since changed slightly, and occupancy on the books is looking healthier, reaching almost 30% for the summer months. Occupancy on the books tails off around October as the summer season ends.
