Travel Pricing Strategies at Res-Expo
the Hospitality, Airline and Travel Industries
Dallas, Texas March 7-9
Manugistics Booth #50-51
ROCKVILLE, Md. – February 28, 2006 – Manugistics Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:MANU), a leading global provider of supply chain and revenue management solutions, today announced that Manugistics Scientist and Consulting Services Director, Dr. Jon Higbie, will be speaking at Res-Expo 2006, the travel industry’s premier technology event to be held in Dallas, Texas on March 7 – 8, 2006.
Res-Expo annually brings travel industry stakeholders together to shape technology strategies and refine the way software and systems are used to improve service provider efficiencies and profits. Dr. Higbie’s panel is titled “Corporate vs. Property: Local Pricing in a Global Marketplace.” He will address the challenge of price optimization across multiple sales channels and how hotel chains, airlines and other travel providers can maintain pricing integrity throughout local and global markets. Panel members will discuss problem-solving solutions involving technology, chain and client management, and channel management.
“This is the second Res-Expo conference where Manugistics’ Revenue Management organization has been invited to speak,” said Higbie. “The event is always an excellent forum for travel technology companies to share ideas and create new approaches to benefit the industry. Manugistics is delighted that our Revenue Management capabilities and broad client experience in the hospitality, travel and airline industries make us an ideal fit for the show and the forum discussion. The blurring together of traditional segments and market channels, plus the increasing complexity of group rate strategies, has dramatically transformed the process of rate management for travel providers.”
Higbie has developed sophisticated solutions in Manugistics Revenue
Management Suite, a Web-architected, integrated set of pricing and revenue
management solutions deployed by a team of strategic advisors.
“The Res-Expo conference focuses on providing expert guidance in evaluating the latest technologies for airlines, hospitality companies, tour operators and e-travel companies,” said Res-Expo Coordinator and Co-creator Vickie Singer. “We are pleased to have Manugistics’ involvement with Res-Expo.”
The Res-Expo Conference will be held at the Adam’s Mark Hotel in Dallas, Texas. Manugistics will be exhibiting at Booth #50-51.
