There are two key elements that help convert an average hotel into the ultimate success story.

They are: pricing and distribution.

Want to generate more bookings?  You need to have competitive rates.

Want to get better rankings on search?  You need distribution.

Want to run a successful online campaign? You can — when you have attractive pricing, and when you have it distributed across multiple channels (metasearch, OTAs, connection partners, etc.)

Which is why this year, trivago is happy to announce that we’re attending the Pricing & Distribution Day 2016 in Frankfurt, keynote presentation, booth, and all.

The event is hosted by the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association (HSMA) and the Swiss Hospitality Marketing Association (SHEMA). Their focus? To teach you how to position your business for success in the ever-evolving (and modernising) hospitality industry.

The Pricing and Distribution Day 2016 is taking place at the Sheraton Frankfurt Airport Hotel on Monday, July 18th. The theme of this year’s event is “Distribution – Redefining Partnerships.” Over 350 delegates from group revenue managers to individual hotel owners will come together for the Pricing & Distribution Day 2016, where they’ll exchange the latest insights and trends that are affecting the hospitality industry in Germany.

At 4:20 p.m., trivago Managing Director Johannes Thomas will deliver a 30-minute keynote presentation on the ins and outs of metasearch marketing for hoteliers.  His presentation will focus on the power of metasearch and how hoteliers can benefit from it to be more competitive online.
