The Direct Booking Summit, is expanding beyond the Americas and Europe with an Asia-Pacific edition inaugurating in Singapore in February 17-29, 2019.
The event is expected to bring together hundreds of hoteliers, who will meet to network, strategise and learn. Direct Booking Summit: Asia-Pacific will focus on region-specific challenges faced by hoteliers, such as an OTA-heavy distribution landscape and the struggle to compete in a mobile-first world.
Tickets for the Singapore summit are now available via Eventbrite, with summit host Triptease offering a 50 per cent discount for early registrants.
Explaining its decision to launch in the region, Triptease said: “Asia-Pacific is a very unique market, and one that is growing and changing very quickly at the moment. The opportunities and challenges for hoteliers are very different to those in the Americas and Europe. It was clear to us that we needed to create an event specifically for hoteliers in Asia.”
Previous speakers and delegates have come from Hyatt, The Leading Hotels of the World, Deutsche Hospitality, Sonesta, Kempinski Hotels, trivago, Kalibri Labs, McKinsey & Company, ReviewPro and The Guestbook.
The first two events in the Direct Booking Summit series scheduled for 2018/19 will take place in Amsterdam (for EMEA markets), June 27-28, and Dallas, October 3-4, 2018.
