Day 1:

Accelerating Recovery by Focussing on the Right Distribution Channels

There are clear signs that the world is opening up. Many countries have already declared that there is no need for masks. Yet, one question is staring hoteliers in the eye: how do we ensure occupancy once travel resumes? There is no playbook that hotels can refer to for thriving in the post-covid world – because past data has been rendered almost ineffective.
Tune in for our two-days virtual event, where top experts from RateGain, IDeaS, and Hyperguest, along with renowned industry names, will walk you through strategies and tips on achieving the best channel mix for effective distribution.

This virtual event will help you answer:

  • How distribution has evolved in 2021
  • How can hotels choose the right distribution channel
  • How technology is positioned to help hoteliers in finding new distribution channels
  • The right distribution strategy for finding instant demand
  • The concept of "Distribution Marketplace"
