San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/29/2014 -- Thought leaders from some of the most innovative brands and technology companies in the hotel industry will come together for a lively discussion of the future of hotel revenue at Duetto’s Master Class at Hospitality Technology Europe (HTE), February 4, 2014, 2:15 PM at Earl’s Court, London.
All industry professionals registered for the HTE conference are invited to attend.
“Traditional revenue management practices associated with BAR rates, hurdles and managing to budgets have benefited intermediaries at the expense of hoteliers. New strategies are needed to allow much greater pricing flexibility and redesigned loyalty programs in a rapidly evolving lodging marketplace,” said Patrick Bosworth, Co-Founder and CEO of Duetto, HTE’s conference partner.
He concluded, “Our roundtable discussion aims to stimulate a fresh conversation about the challenges and solutions for the European market, as we introduce Revenue Strategy and debate what every hotel must do to stay ahead of the curve.”
Duetto provides dynamic, intelligent revenue strategy solutions to the world’s leading hotels, allowing them to maximize profits through superior, actionable data to better manage pricing, revenue and business mix decisions.
