Direct Booking Summit

We're coming Paris in June 2019. Once again, the doors of the Summit will open for European hoteliers to discuss the biggest challenges in the industry and to provide an exclusive opportunity to meet likeminded professionals.

We'll be talking direct bookings, OTAs, innovations for hotels, the hospitality landscape and much more. Register today and save 50% off the regular ticket price with our early bird discount.

The Direct Booking Summit series is the largest event series of its kind dedicated to direct bookings. It's a place for hoteliers to network, strategise and come together, whether they're from the smallest independent or the biggest hotel chain in the world.

After three sellout years, we can't wait to meet you again in one of Europe's most beloved tourist destinations. We'll be finalising the agenda and speakers over the coming months, so stay tuned for further announcements.
