in Miami and San Francisco


Conducted by leading RMS consultant Carol Verret, Paid-for by Optims America: 
who said there’s no such thing as a free lunch?

Shelton, CT, September 5th, 2005: Optims America and CVCT Carol Verret and Associates Consulting and Training announced today two more “Revenue Management Accelerator” seminars in Miami, September 20th, and San Francisco, September 29th. Optims America, a leader in cutting edge Revenue Management Systems, is sponsoring the program so entry – usually US $200.00 – is free. 

The full-day seminars will cover everything from effective revenue management strategies, through daily discipline, to measuring return on investment and are ideally-suited to property-based and corporate revenue managers, as well as Sales and Marketing and Operations executives. 

“The technology that has been developed to manage a hotel’s revenue is indispensable, especially in a highly competitive market that requires a property to have the ability to make key decisions faster,” said Carol Verret, President of Carol Verret & Associates.  “This seminar focuses on the emergence of revenue management as an indispensable tool in our industry and how to define the decision making process to become faster and more precise in all areas of revenue generation.”

“Hotels are not just concerned about optimizing “clusters” or multiple hotels within the same city or destination, but also evaluating the distribution effect from the multiple booking engines and web sites,” noted Andy Ahluwalia, Managing Director of Optims America.  “With the substantial increase in bookings originating from these web booking engines, hotel revenue managers need to develop channel management strategies, global or channel specific, and evaluate the channel from a ROI perspective specific to the hotel.    These seminars provide an overview of Revenue Management techniques available to hotels, and take away some of the mystery surrounding revenue management. “

This “must attend” Revenue Management Seminar has been sponsored by Optims America, and is free for hotel participants.  The dates for the seminar are- 

  • 8:00AM – 12:00PM and 1:00PM – 5:00PM on September 20th in Miami.  
  • 8:00AM – 12:00PM and 1:00PM – 5:00PM  on September 29th in San Francisco. 

Attendees can pick from either morning or afternoon sessions. The morning session includes continental breakfast and the afternoon session includes a light lunch. 

Space is limited. To RSVP please call 203-925-1701 ext. 110 or RSVP online at:
