Want to know what’s really going on with your wholesale rates? In this session we’ll be investigating the complex world of wholesale distribution and examining why and how so many rates are finding their way onto OTAs.

  • Track and eliminate wholesale rate disparities
  • Negotiate with partners to ensure mutual success
  • Understand your wholesale landscape and choose the right partners for your hotel.

How to maximise your return on every channel

Find out how and why you should be tracking revenue on a channel-by channel basis and adjusting your spend based on the guests you want to attract.

Making their problems your problems: The changing world of OTAs

Maintaining rate parity with OTAs is crucial to conversion. So why are hotels still finding it so hard?

  • Why Booking.basic is just a symptom of a wider problem
