Kitchen and bathroom manufacturer Perrin & Rowe has opened its first standalone showroom in London as the brand fine tunes its hospitality offering under new ownership. The company, which was acquired 18 months ago by US giant Fortunes Brands, has unveiled its first dedicated showroom in the Design Centre in Chelsea, as it is looks for growth across a range of sectors and sets its sights on expansion within the boutique and independent hotel industry.
The Lancrigg Hotel in Grasmere reopened on Valentine’s Day after major refurbishment work with a new look and new name. The business is owned by Simon Wright, who took over in 2016, and will be renamed Lancrigg Restaurant with Rooms and now boasts updated interiors and a new menu. Each of the hotel’s 10 bedrooms have been given a makeover, with gas central heating and a new commercial hot water system.
David Barrett, managing director of Pic PR, explains why digital comms is the best tactic for getting direct bookings and how you can cash in. The holy grail of any hotel’s online presence is securing bookings directly. Online Travel Agents have tremendous power within the hotel industry and they’re often the go to booking method for potential guests. But while this helps occupancy, providing a welcome boost to hotel revenue, it comes with the downside of a commission fee.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
