Hospitality Innovators to Converge at Sixth Annual RSS This July

Washington, D.C., January 23, 2018 — Hoteliers and industry thought leaders will come together July 10 to identify the major trends transforming hospitality and share best practices for facing them at the annual RSS in Washington, D.C. The sixth RSS will be held at The Newseum on Pennsylvania Avenue, just a few blocks from The White House.

“The Newseum is a perfect venue for RSS in its sixth year, because it seems like it’s a new story in this industry every day,” said Patrick Bosworth, Co-Founder and CEO of Duetto, hospitality’s only Revenue Strategy Platform. “We’re seeing change accelerate in hospitality constantly, which is prompting new strategies not only from hoteliers but also from online travel agencies and other intermediaries. In order to innovate better solutions for this industry, it’s crucial to create a forum where our loyal RSS audience can discuss their challenges and ideas.”

Kalibri Labs and Silver Hospitality Group co-host RSS with Duetto. The conference combines educational sessions, networking and the presentation of new research to forward-thinking hotel brand executives, ownership groups and management companies, and asset managers.

“RSS is one of the few industry meetings where senior leadership from ownership, brands and management companies, with very diverse portfolios, can come together to share the goals of learning the latest and best ways to measure their performance and, ultimately, drive greater profitability for their companies,” said Cindy Estis Green, Co-Founder and CEO of Kalibri Labs. “Every year, consumer preferences evolve in unpredictable ways, as does the landscape for distribution and hotel technology. Rising costs are about the only thing predictable about this industry. Confronting that complexity starts here, with this group of presenters and hospitality thought leaders.”

As in years past, more than 300 hotel innovators and leaders are projected to participate in RSS.

“There’s no event quite like RSS, focused primarily on the kind of next-generation technology and innovation for the hospitality industry,” said Stacy Silver, President of Silver Hospitality Group. “A gathering like this is designed to bring together thought leaders searching for innovation to face the industry’s biggest challenges, and we’re excited to see the ideas for today and for the future that will arise from RSS.”

Registration for RSS 2018 is now open. Early registration runs through May 15 and is $595 for hoteliers and $995 for other attendees. More about RSS, including conference details and sponsorship information, is available at

RSS is a one-day conference hosted by Duetto, Kalibri Labs and Silver Hospitality Group, bringing together thought leaders and practitioners to examine forces reshaping the hospitality industry. This innovative conference taps into industry leaders who help elevate the perspective of Revenue Strategy while addressing revenue data, marketing and technology.


Kalibri Labs created a next-generation benchmarking platform that helps hotels improve profit contribution by evaluating and predicting revenue performance net of acquisition costs. The Hummingbird PXM cloud-based platform taps the company’s robust industrywide database with history from 2011 of more than 30,000 hotels and millions of hotel stays and acquisition costs to enable a hotel to benchmark and manage its channels, rate categories and travel agency accounts to achieve the highest net revenue. The same database is leveraged by the real estate community to quantify the upside of markets and hotels in transactions and development efforts to support underwriting, lending and site selection activities.

Kalibri’s benchmarking apps and unique algorithms enable owners and operators to determine a hotel’s optimal business mix and manage resources to achieve it. In combination with key external data streams such as Airbnb supply and demand, consumer review scores and loyalty contribution, Kalibri Labs characterizes the nature of demand in major markets to recommend realistic targets for a hotel to strive for its best performance.

The Kalibri team is a seasoned group of executives with deep industry experience and a passion to sustain the industry’s financial health in a highly challenging and dynamic digital marketplace.
