London, 10 August, 2017 — Hospitality innovators and brand executives will convene 6 November at the Amba Charing Cross Hotel for the Third Annual Revenue Strategy Forum (RSF), a spirited discussion and networking event focused on how hotels can create value in a rapidly evolving marketplace.
RSF is an educational event organized by Duetto, the market leader in hotel profit optimization technology.
“Entering its third year in Europe, RSF has quickly become a critical program to develop new ideas that will shape the future of hospitality,” said Patrick Bosworth, Co-founder and CEO of Duetto. “As macroeconomic trends and forces impacting the industry become even more volatile, we are excited to expand this forum to bring hotel professionals together and develop new revenue strategies alongside owners, asset managers, brands and fellow innovators.”
Last year’s Revenue Strategy Forum drew more than 150 hotel industry professionals, discussing increasing challenges from the growth of third-party intermediaries to the further commoditization of the hospitality industry — concluding that hotels must develop a holistic approach to Revenue Strategy, which optimizes channel mix to achieve greater profitability and market share.
On 6 November, discussion turns to the state of the industry today, as hotel performance enters a new period of uncertainty and discomfort.
Agenda and topics to be discussed at RSF London include:
Keynote: Bret Greenstein, VP of Consumer Business, IBM Watson Internet of Things
How Cognitive & Predictive Intelligence will Transform Hospitality
Learn from one of the foremost experts in the field how cognitive and predictive analytics have transformed other industries, as well as their potential to affect the way hoteliers forecast and more accurately anticipate the needs of our guests.
Panel: Rethinking Hotel Technology
Rather than bolting on more solutions to an already fragile ecosystem, innovative hotels are beginning to rethink their tech stack and are looking for ways to better integrate multiple systems in a modern cloud architecture to better personalize offers and experiences for guests.
Panel: The Untapped Potential of Personalization: A Brand vs. Independent Approach
Building guest profiles that can be shared securely among systems allows hotels to build a special relationship with each and every guest.
