Despite the cold gripping much of Europe, the days are getting longer, heralding the approaching end of winter. Which means that the events season for the hotel industry is about to burst into full swing. We’ll be kicking it off with Travel Technology Europe on 22 and 23 February at Olympia London.
Harness your potential with metasearch marketing
In 2017 we’re continuing our mission to establish trivago as the number one marketing channel for hoteliers. At Travel Technology Europe, the focus will be on discovering metasearch and what you can achieve by actively marketing your hotel on trivago.
Here are some facts for a start:
- One in two travellers uses metasearch sites to compare hotel prices
- Hotels receive five times more clicks on their profile when they take advantage of trivago Hotel Manager
- Hotels that are registered and classified as top-ranked receive 35% of their bookings via trivago
Join me at 11:15 a.m. in the Hospitality Tech Conference Theatre on day one (22 February) for an introduction to metasearch marketing on trivago with our suite of products, and visit us at stand HT144 for a full consultation.
Navigating your hotel’s relationships with OTAs
In 2016, discussions about hotels’ relationships with OTAs centred on “the direct booking war” and positioned OTAs as the hotel’s greatest rival. This sentiment is slowly fading away as hoteliers around the UK and Ireland are finding OTAs to be a necessary component of the marketing mix.
Navigating your relationships with OTAs and partnering with those most beneficial to your hotel is still a key to success. That’s why I’m joining a panel hosted by Kevin May of Tnooz, to explore “a new route to becoming frenemies” for hotels and OTAs.
Don’t miss the discussion at 11:15 on day two in the Hospitality Tech Conference Theatre. Along with Emily Assender of Triptease and Adriaan Coppens of OTA Insight, and Lennert de Jong of CitizenM Hotels, I’ll explore the current hotel distribution marketplace, how accommodation providers and intermediaries can work together, and the evolution of this marketplace and the new partnerships that it engenders.
