Debated by Ritz Carlton, Dollar Thrifty, Hyatt International, Omni Hotels,
JetBlue, Delta, Resort Quest Hawaii, Harrah’s, WestJet and Many More

August 1, 2006 - These are truly exciting times for Revenue Management in the US travel industry. The speed of change, innovation and growth is eye-watering! If you are not pushing hard to be at the forefront of these changes, you are being left behind. The seniority and number of travel pricing executives who are already booked to attend North America’s premier RM forum indicates that this is where the industry leaders come to keep abreast of these changes.

EyeforTravel’s Revenue Management and Pricing in Travel 2006 event is being held October 4-5 at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza in Chicago.

This event will address the issues that are critical to every RM professional. Topics to be covered include understanding dynamic pricing, analyzing the price sensitivity of your customers, improving your performance measurement and getting the most out of your forecasting techniques. Some of the agenda highlights include: 

  • Delta Airlines will speak about the challenges that they have faced with a tripling in jet-fuel prices and how they have managed to combat this with intelligent RM strategy. 
  • Ritz Carlton will case-study CRM from a Revenue Management perspective and evaluate how best to integrate RM to form a coherent CRM strategy.
  • and will present on the impact of opaque channels and then be joined by Resort Quest Hawaii and Delta Airlines on a panel debate. 
  • Hyatt International, Princess Cruises, JetBlue, Spirit Airlines and Omni Hotels will provide a cross-industry view of how to get the best out of your forecasting techniques.
  • WestJet, Dollar Thrifty, Outrigger Resorts & Hotels and Spirit Airlines will present case studies and field questions on measuring and improving your RM performance.
Delegates need to register before the 18th August to take advantage of the early bird discount and save up to $200.  Plus delegates will be able to attend the Travel Distribution Summit North America and the RM Conference using the same conference pass – meaning that this event delivers outstanding value for money.
