TravelClick Hosts Complimentary Webinar on Q4 2012 Hotel Industry Trends

Webinar to feature Best Practices and Insights for 2013 and Beyond

NEW YORK – February 19, 2013 – TravelClick, the leading provider of revenue generating solutions for hoteliers, will present three free webinars on February 26th and 27th to review fourth quarter 2012 global hotel performance results and trends. Findings will be presented by TravelClick executives John Hach, Senior Vice President, Global Product Management, and Yoly Gawler, Director, Reservations Product Development. The webinar will be moderated by Barbara Taylor Carpender, President and CEO at Taylored Alliances.

For many hoteliers, current economic conditions are creating uncertainty and hesitation in allocating 2013 resources. At the same time, transient business continues to experience solid growth within many markets throughout the world, much of which is attributed to new and emerging business practices separating winning hotels from laggards.

Social, mobile and interactive media are creating cost effective opportunities for hoteliers to drive and deliver incremental revenue within their local markets. Voice reservations are experiencing their own renaissance, as mobile enhanced click-to-call search and other consumer friendly technologies provide new and improved methods for clients to transact. Additionally, Facebook recently announced Graph Search, creating yet another new opportunity for hoteliers to drive transient demand.

This webinar will review successful hotel marketing and revenue management strategies and emerging best practices to drive incremental demand in 2013 and beyond. The webinar will highlight findings of fourth quarter hotel performance results and future industry trends, which are based on TravelClick’s proprietary Agency360® solution and eMonitor market performance reports, as well as Demand360® forward-looking hotel booking data. TravelClick speakers will also provide specific recommendations to help plan and execute hotel marketing strategies to maximize profitability in 2013 and beyond.

Key topics will include:
  • Review and analysis of 2012 fourth quarter hotel performance
  • Regional analysis of key markets throughout the world
  • Rediscovery of the voice channel to improve profitability
  • Marketing and revenue management best practices
  • 2013 outlook, including longer term reservation trends
Three sessions will be offered to accommodate a range of time zones. Click the links to register:
