Participate in Major Industry Survey and Enter the Draw to Win a Ticket to the Direct Booking Summit 2017
August 16, 2017 12:26pm
Following on from last year’s successes, the Direct Booking Summit returns this Fall to New York on the 27-28th September and Barcelona on the 18-19th October. The Summit is the world’s largest conference dedicated to the Direct Booking Movement, and many of the world’s leading hoteliers will be in attendance.
The creation of the Summit was a natural progression from (its parent company) Triptease’s significant focus on industry research. The company is of the view that it cannot truly help hoteliers unless it takes a wider view of the problems they face, and contributes to the conversations that may help to solve them. With this in mind, the current focus of their research is wholesalers and the infamous ‘Amoma problem’.
The hotel industry faces an uphill struggle against antiquated technologies and non-communicative systems. Wholesalers run on tech that was built for offline bookings, but can no longer make money without selling online. Static rates designed to be rolled into packages and sold by traditional travel agents are now being shipped out to OTAs like Amoma, with no oversight available to the hotels whose rooms they relate to.
So, how will we ever solve a problem like Amoma?
That’s what Triptease is trying to find out - and they need help from hoteliers to do it.
Every hotelier who contributes to Triptease’s quick (and anonymous) survey on the issue will be entered into the draw for a free ticket to the Direct Booking Summit of their choosing. The runners-up will receive a Triptease goody bag, and a pair of famous Power Socks!
Take the survey here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Wholesalers’ if you’d like to contribute further.
