Rome, Italy - Lybra - developer of the Assistant, a machine learning, demand-centric revenue management system (RMS), and HS LATAM - developer of state-of-the-art online distribution and competitor analysis solutions - are proud to announce the upcoming Travel Tech LATAM online conference, taking place October 19-23, 2020. The Travel Tech LATAM conference will feature expert speakers, in English and Spanish, from top travel technology companies, including Lybra, myHotel, BuyZy, Expedia Group, Sabre, Tag, asksuite, SiteMinder, ReviewPro, eRevMax and many others.
The Travel Tech LATAM online conference was created to bring focus to the importance of operational technology to support Latin American hotels' current and future success, as the region is currently experiencing a very depressed market, with only minimal improvement, month-over-month; "although August 2020 occupancy, RevPAR and ADR are the highest in the region since March, it is still the lowest for any August [on record]."
There are significant benefits for hotels in investing in operational technology today, to establish a strong foundation for a better financial future. A recent Sabre survey showed that "50% of Latin American respondents plan to travel within six months once travel restrictions are lifted," so hoteliers must start planning today for the return of travel, ensuring their competitive advantage, no matter how the pandemic affects demand.
"I've seen, firsthand, the benefits that technology can bring to a hotel's recovery, especially in a depressed market," said Vinicius Geraldo, CEO of HS LATAM and Founder of Travel Tech. "When there are limited guests, hotels need to find a way to stand out from the competition online and ensure that they receive as many bookings - and as much revenue from each - as possible. This event was designed to educate hoteliers about the different types of technology - and the recovery strategies - that can be leveraged to set themselves up for success, once borders open up and travel resumes."
"Revenue management systems - especially when supported by Big Data to accurately forecast demand - are one of the most important elements of a hotel's success in the 'new normal'," said Nicolò Rolle, VP of Sales Iberia & LATAM at Lybra and an expert participant during the "Revenue Management in the New Norma l" panel on October 22, 2020. "If a hotel doesn't have the best room rate, available on the channels where guests want to book, increasing their occupancy, ADR or RevPAR becomes very difficult - as does ensuring a property's survival during this period of decreased demand."
The Travel Tech LATAM conference is comprised of one panel presentation on a specific topic, related to the LATAM region, each day. Sessions include:
- OCTOBER 19, 2020: LATAM Customer Demand Behavior
- OCTOBER 20, 2020: The Importance of Comments in the New Normal
- OCTOBER 21, 2020: Tips & Suggestions for Optimizing Direct Sales
- OCTOBER 22, 2020: Revenue Management in the New Normal
- OCTOBER 23, 2020: The New Ecosystem of Hotel Distribution
