TTI & European Tourism Association Joint Forum – ‘Money for Nothing!’
Tuesday 7 June 2016 09:30 – 13:00
Strand Palace Hotel 372 Strand London WC2R 0JJ
Increasing profitability whilst not selling any additional inventory is just one of the benefits of revenue management
Revenue management is one of the most important disciplines to grasp in an industry such as travel that has a finite and perishable stock; finite because we cannot easily build more hotel rooms or increase flight seat capacity; perishable because one the flight has departed or the hotel stay date has passed, any unsold inventory has been irretrievably lost. It is not only vital to fill the rooms or seats but to do so whilst at the same time achieving the maximum revenue possible giving the demand environment.
The science (some call it an art) of revenue management aims to address this. It helps predict consumer demand to optimize inventory and price availability in order to maximize revenue.
For this Forum we have assembled a team of revenue management experts who will talk about this discipline from the perspectives of airlines, tour operators and hoteliers.
Do we all have the same issues?
Are there common solutions?
Can one industry sector learn from another?
Where does one start with revenue management?
These are just some of the questions that were addressed at the Forum. Watch the presentations and hear for yourself how you can make Money for Nothing!
