Washington, DC, December 7, 2015 — Hotel industry innovators and thought leaders will converge on Washington, D.C. on July 7, 2016 for the fourth annual Revenue Strategy Summit (RSS). The annual event examines the forces reshaping the hospitality industry and how marketing and technology can evolve to meet these new challenges. RSS 2016 will be held at the Renaissance Washington, D.C. Downtown Hotel.
“Over the past few years, RSS has become an unmatched laboratory for new ideas shaping the future of hospitality,” said Patrick Bosworth, CEO of Duetto. “We look forward to continuing to build this conference to bring even more innovative ideas forward, helping develop revenue strategies alongside hotel owners, asset managers and management companies.”
RSS combines education, networking and high-level information exchange among an anticipated group of more than 300 hotel executives from brands, ownership groups, asset managers, management companies and respected industry leaders who are responsible for increasing revenue and optimizing demand.
“The pace of change continues to escalate in the digital marketplace, making it urgent to find new methods and techniques to measure and overcome rising distribution costs,” said Cindy Estis Green, CEO and Co-Founder of Kalibri Labs, LLC. “As online travel agencies and meta-search players continue to grow, non-traditional room retailers are becoming more involved in selling rooms and disruptors are emerging, threatening market share and the all-important customer relationship. Attendees at RSS 2016 will get a glimpse into the future of the distribution landscape while getting insight into new business models and the opportunities they present for consumer acquisition.”
Stacy Silver, President Silver Hospitality Group, added: “RSS is different than other events because we focus on the intersection of technology and innovation. We encourage all hotel professionals interested in discussing practical solutions to the most important challenges facing hoteliers now and in the future to attend the event.”
Registration opens December 4th. Early registration is $695 until May 6, 2015 and $795 thereafter. More information about the Revenue Strategy Summit, including conference details and sponsorship information, is available at www.revenuestrategysummit.com.
