The Direct Booking Summit, the only industry event dedicated to the Direct Booking Movement, is coming to Singapore on 27-28 February 2019. Hundreds of hoteliers will meet to network, strategize, and learn from their peers at the inaugural Asia-Pacific edition of the summit, hosted by Triptease.
Direct Booking Summit: Asia-Pacific will focus in on the region-specific challenges faced by hoteliers in the Asian market, such as an OTA-heavy distribution landscape and the struggle to compete in a mobile-first world.
Triptease, summit host and pioneer of the Direct Booking Movement, explained their decision to run the third event in Singapore: “Asia-Pacific is a unique market and one that is growing and changing very quickly at the moment. The opportunities and challenges for hoteliers are very different to those in the Americas and Europe. It was clear to us that we needed to create an event specifically for hoteliers in Asia.”
