The mantra “Revenue is vanity: Profit is sanity” holds true in the realm of PORM.

Revenue optimisation has been the bedrock of hospitality management, focusing on filling rooms and maximizing sales through strategic pricing and inventory management. Hotels have started to move to total revenue management to maximize the revenue per guest. Yet, this is still a focus on revenue and often overlooks the ultimate goal: PROFIT.

This workshop will take you through the strategies needed to implement a sustainable approach to reach your Profit goal. A whitepaper will be provided to attendees to take back to your hotel and guide you through implementation.

If you have anything to do with managing revenues in the hospitality space then you can't afford to miss this much anticipated Masterclass by Asia Pacific's 'Revenue Dream Team'. Book your ROC 2024 tickets now 👉 hsmaiasia.org/revenue-optimization-conference/register/
