Here you are taking the time out to come and learn about the latest trends and strategies to promote your hotel and improve the ROI but do you know how you can implement these new strategies at your property? How do you get the funding and where do you find the right people to make these changes? Whether you have control of the strategies and budgets at hotel level, or corporate level, you need to be influencing and promoting the digital world to bring more business into your property.
Let’s start with an overview of the components of a good Digital/Direct Strategy. During the day, we’ll give you loads of information and case studies, then at the end of the day, let’s revisit how you can go back to your hotel and start implementing the changes needed to kickstart your 2017 strategy!

Revenue Management function has been evolving at a fast pace - from just managing price, to including inventory, followed by distribution management and onto total profit optimization involving restaurants, bars, spas, and even hotel carparks. Is Digital Marketing and Analytics the latest bastion to involve RM? How do these two functions collaborate in hotels? How should they? Jeannette Ho from Fairmont Raffles gives a peek into how these functions join forces at a corporate level to drive incremental revenue and higher guest satisfaction. Lincoln Barrett from IHG will provide a property level perspective.
The Thailand Tourism Support Group (“TTSG”) is a non-profit, private-sector initiative focused on strengthening the tourism industry in Thailand. A panel of tourism experts will discuss challenges and initiatives impacting the tourism sector in Thailand.
Moderator: Stefan Wolf, President HSMAI Thailand and Senior Vice President Revenue & Distribution Strategy, Onyx Hospitality Group

Speaker: Rachel Grier, IDeaS Revenue Solutions
Among all the changes in roles and activities, one of the ones not discussed much is the changes for Public Relations people. PR are used to arranging activities on the quiet so competitors don’t find out. But that frustrates the Digital people, who can get a lot of mileage out of great PR initiatives. Something has to change here…
Speaker: Marcos Cadena, Corporate Director of Distribution, Minor Group
It’s time to measure and learn
It’s very easy to set up platforms so that you have massive amounts of data coming in but is this data actionable? Is it even reliable? In this session, you will learn how to build, and continuously improve, any consumer-facing Product or Service. You could easily apply this method to building an App or to your Digital Marketing program.
This is a ‘not-to-miss’ session, where you will learn about which tools you can use to measure results, how to use them to improve your results, and how to check if the data you’re getting is reliable.
Speaker: Jai Govindani, Chief Technology Officer – Red Planet Hotel
Special Take Home Conference Guide: HSMAI’s Marketing Advisory Board has compiled a list of tools they have found useful in measuring performance.
