Global Revenue Forum Stockholm

30th January 2024

  • It was a good day, always fun to meet so many people together and get opportunities to exchange some experiences with people who work with the same things as yourself.

  • Very good, relevant topics that could be immediately adopted in our business. Very good content and planned by Taktikon’s staff

  • All in all, a rewarding day with an incredible amount of knowledge gathered under one roof. We will be back!

  • I thought it was a good event with good content. Also worked very well to see the other speakers in other cities

  • Good general overview and update of the market and how revenue management is developing
