The most recent data shows that the global hospitality industry has started to deliver performance improvement in key metrics, with Internet travel growing over 14 percent for the third quarter of 2009.

Smaller rates of decline indicate that some travel segments are beginning to return to the marketplace, helping to fuel the beginning of a recovery in 2010.  On December 2 and 3, TRAVELCLICK®, a leader in hotel e-commerce and business intelligence solutions, will address these trends and more in a complimentary webinar titled, "Third Quarter 2009 Global Hotel Performance: Creating and Sustaining Competitive Advantage in 2010.”

The webinar will highlight third quarter performance results and future trends based on TRAVELCLICK’s proprietary eMonitor and eTRAK market performance reports.  It will also provide recommendations that can help hotels prepare for the year to come and maximize opportunity as the economy turns the corner.  Key topics will include:

  • Review and analysis of third quarter 2009 global hotel performance
  • The power struggle between OTAs and hotels—who is winning
  • Impact of the economy on shopping behavior and conversion trends
  • Leading performance indicators heading into 2010
  • Specific actions hoteliers can take to create their own competitive edge
  • Trends and perspectives will be presented by TRAVELCLICK’s industry experts John Hach, vce pesident, mdia and industry relations, and Kristi White, director of revenue optimization.
