“We’re excited to welcome an incredible group of thought leaders at The Revenue Strategy Summit,” said Stacy Silver, President of SHG and conference host. “With innovation as its guiding theme, we encourage any hotel professional to attend who has an interest in discussing practical solutions to the most important questions facing hoteliers in today’s dynamic marketplace.”
The one-day conference will examine the future of revenue strategy disciplines such as revenue management, distribution, e-commerce, loyalty marketing, sales and reputation management. It will combine education, networking, and high-level information exchange among an anticipated group of more than 150 hotel executives and respected industry leaders who are responsible for increasing revenue and optimizing demand.
Cindy Estes Green said, “Rapid changes in the distribution landscape bring substantial challenges for hotel owners, managers and brands. In order to navigate a new world order dominated by tech companies that dwarf hotel brands in terms of consumer adoption, and the rising cost of business acquisition, hoteliers need to be prepared to hit the reset button on organization, resource allocation and approaches to revenue generation. The Revenue Strategy Summit will help inform hoteliers about ways that the insights borne from data and technology and techniques in revenue strategy can move toward improved profit performance.”
