Monday, Jan 30th 2017, 4:00 PM IST

Abstract

Revenue management today is a very critical process with hotels. It is a comparatively new practice with Indian Hotels, but most have now accepted it as a gold standard thanks to the widespread global adoption and increase of international hotels as part of comp-set.

Interestingly a lot of standalone, independent owner operated properties have embraced online distribution channels, and also developed their own versions of revenue management. With quick fixes and incomplete knowlege, little focus has been given to ensuring that (a) Full potential of Reveneu Management is being leveraged, (b) Correct practices are being setup, both in intent and systems, and (c) marketing, distribution and pricing practices are all integrated in one single framework.

In this session, we will take case studies and examine gaps in their revenue management practices and share best practices so that full potential of the revenue management practice can be leveraged.
