Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) September 19, 2011
The strongest demand rebound ever in the U.S. hotel industry took place in 2010, yet in 2011, improvement in the average daily rate remains elusive. The industry faces multiple challenges: a growing dependency on online travel agencies, as well as a new generation of mobile-enabled consumers ready to take advantage of instant price transparency and alerting. Now, not only can customers find the lowest rate, but the lowest rates can find the customers!
To help organizations win today’s hotel price wars and grow profits, JDA® Software Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: JDAS), The Supply Chain Company®, and customer Carlson Hotels will share the success behind a new revenue optimization paradigm as part of a panel at Eye for Travel’s Travel Distribution Summit 2011 in Las Vegas. The panel is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 2:00 p.m. PDT at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Now in its 13th year, Eye for Travel’s Travel Distribution Summit 2011 brings together travel industry experts to share best practices, network, and gain additional knowledge on the four key cornerstones of online travel: distribution, revenue management and merchandising, mobile strategies and social media and marketing.
JDA Session Details
Bill Kotrba, vice president of industry strategy at JDA Software and customer Fred Deschamps, vice president of revenue generation at Carlson Hotels will present “Innovate and Differentiate with Advanced RM Strategies & Technologies” at 2:00 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, Sept 20.
Deschamps and Kotrba will share the success behind Carlson Hotel’s new revenue optimization project called Stay Night Automated Pricing (SNAP). SNAP represents a new paradigm in revenue optimization that unites the historically separate activities of pricing and revenue management. The presentation will reveal how price optimization, demand forecasting and elasticity measurement are key to competing successfully and winning the hotel price wars, and why traditional solutions no longer solve the right problems for today’s hospitality industry.
