The Global Revenue Forum is scheduled to take place on Jan. 30, 2024, simultaneously across four major international cities – London, Stockholm, Milan, and Lisbon – and will connect the world’s foremost experts in hotel revenue and commercial management.
The event will begin with a discussion with Pettigrew and Kohlmayr on the challenges facing hotel revenue generation and how revenue managers are working with hotel operators to continue to build profitability and innovate in the year ahead. Following this, attendees will join sessions to debate and discuss how hoteliers can optimise their commercial performance while building resilience in an unpredictable market.
Klaus Kohlmayr, chief evangelist and head of strategy, IDeaS, said: “The global revenue management landscape never stops changing, and we are thrilled to partner with the Global Revenue Forum to help illuminate operators as to their options and advantages in today’s marketplace, even when things seem most uncertain.
