CONFERENCE TOPICS - DAY 1
In an industry experiencing constant disruption, let’s start the day with an update on the latest innovations and emerging trends in the hotel industry.
Let’s start the day with some insights on our local markets. Who is travelling where? Trends in rates, forward looking data and historical data. Most importantly, what should we be doing about the changing trends?
We’ve been talking about TRM for years now but is anyone actually doing it? How can hotels get started towards implementing TRM? Function Space, Restaurant, Spa, Activities? All of these products can be effectively revenue managed. Hear from hoteliers that have been through the pain and made this work.
With a methodology that has proved to be accurate across thousands of projects, we will:
- Show you how to target the people who will pay the highest rate (Identify segments with a high willingness to pay)
- Determine how willingness to pay differs between segments.
- Provide insight for fine-tuning differential pricing strategies
