MCLEAN, VA NOVEMBER, 2016 --The Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI) announces the release of Portrait of Revenue Management Leadership. The report examines the results of a recent survey of hotel management executives on their current work, the challenges facing the discipline, and the evolving skills and duties of senior revenue management professionals.
Hotel management executives from brands and ownership groups and management companies were surveyed. The responses to the survey indicate that in response to a market in which consumers have more control than ever before—largely due to technology—predictive analytics and data-driven strategy are becoming increasingly critical to successful revenue management and the hotel business in general.
The report sheds light on other noteworthy trends indicated in the survey findings:
-- Redefine core industry principles and the expected skills and abilities of senior leadership (on property and in corporate offices).
-- Deploy revenue management throughout the organization and align revenue management with enterprise goals.
-- Advance the thinking in related disciplines and elevate strategic application of data throughout the enterprise.
HSMAI’s Portrait of Revenue Management Leadership provides a comprehensive look at the current state of the revenue management profession and the opportunities for growth and increased profitability. In addition, the report offers in-depth insights for hotel business executives to succeed in a future that favors—if not requires—data-driven strategy.
“The report’s findings are a striking reminder—if not a wake-up call—to professionals in the hotel business: To be truly successful in this increasingly competitive industry, the strategic application of data and analytics throughout the revenue management process is paramount,” said Robert A. Gilbert, CHME, CHBA, president & CEO of HSMAI.
The research and resulting report were made possible through the sponsorship of the 2016 Chief Revenue Officer Roundtables by Booking.com, Ideas – a SAS company, NOR1, Rainmaker, STR, and Tambourine.
Portrait of Revenue Management Leadership can be downloaded from the HSMAI website.
