TravelClick Hosts Webinar -- 2011 Fourth Quarter Global Hotel Industry Update: Maximizing Revenue from Social and Mobile Channels
Complimentary Webinar Taking Place February 28 & 29, 2012
Mobile searches for hotels are growing at an accelerated pace. Recent studies show that more than 20 percent of hotel search is occurring on a mobile device. Additionally, consumers are increasingly turning to social media channels when making booking decisions. Couple this with the upcoming Facebook Initial Public Offering (IPO), creating unprecedented opportunities to reach its 850 million users, and it has never been more imperative for hoteliers to understand the power of these online channels.
The webinar will highlight fourth quarter hotel performance results and future industry trends based on TravelClick's proprietary eMonitor and eTRAK market performance reports, as well as MarketVision Demand Position™ forward-looking booking data. The webinar will also provide specific recommendations to help plan and execute hotel marketing strategies to maximize profitability in 2012.
Key topics will include:
- Review and analysis of fourth quarter global hotel performance
- Regional analysis of key markets throughout the world
- Mobile and social channel forecasts
- Best practices for inventory allocation
- 2012 Hotel Performance Forecast
Topics, trends, and perspectives will be presented by TravelClick's industry experts John Hach, Senior Vice President, Global Product Management, and Caryl Helsel, Vice President, Demand and Distribution. The webinar will be moderated by Barbara Taylor Carpender, President and CEO of Taylored Training and a frequent moderator for the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI).
