The most recent data shows that the global hospitality industry has indeed started to rebound, with some markets reporting minor growth in the fourth quarter.

Internet travel experienced 25 percent growth for the fourth quarter of 2009 while the global distribution system, a channel responsible for 24 percent of overall hotel bookings, realized the smallest declines seen in the last year.  TRAVELCLICK®, a leader in hotel e-commerce and business intelligence, will address these and other noteworthy trends on February 17 and 18, in a complimentary webinar entitled “Fourth Quarter 2009 Global Hotel Performance: The Road to Recovery in 2010.”   
 
The webinar will highlight fourth 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 2009 global hotel performance, key indicators for 2010
  • Regional analysis of key source markets throughout the world
  • Best practices in the emerging marketing science of social media
  • How to maximize average daily rate and revenue per available room in a recessionary economy
  • How to capture local market demand to gain and sustain competitive advantage

Trends and perspectives will be presented by TRAVELCLICK’s industry experts John Hach, senior vice president, Digital Agency, and Kristi White, director of revenue optimization.   The seminar 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).
