Scottsdale, Ariz (PRWEB) August 28, 2012
Today, the world is dominated by the rise of mobile channels and always-connected consumers who are making purchasing decisions based on price. The travel and hospitality industries have reached a tipping point whereby today’s “good enough” approach will leave many organizations behind the curve unless they adapt. Employing innovative price optimization, demand forecasting and revenue management solutions can help companies achieve the right balance between competitive advantage and profitability.
To help organizations address these industry challenges and outperform the competition, JDA® Software Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: JDAS), The Supply Chain Company®, and customer Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group will lead panel sessions and a workshop at the EyeforTravel Travel Distribution Summit North America 2012 Sept. 13-14 at Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. The keynote panel titled Clash of the Titans will feature JDA customer Fred Deschamps, vice president of global revenue optimization, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. In addition, a revenue management panel and lunchtime workshop will feature Suresh Acharya, vice president of product development, JDA Software. Deschamps and Acharya will offer perspectives and strategies on using innovative pricing practices to achieve market differentiation and profitability.
Now in its 13th year, EyeforTravel’s Travel Distribution Summit North America 2012 brings together leading global hotels, airlines, OTAs, GDS, cruises, destinations and travel technology companies from across North America for two days of best-practice strategies, cutting-edge trends and vigorous debate.
