Rome, Italy – September 16, 2020 – Lybra – developer of the Assistant, the most advanced, machine learning, demand-centric revenue management system (RMS) available on the market, and HS LATAM – developer of state-of-the-art online distribution and competitor analysis solutions – is proud to announce the upcoming Travel Tech APAC Online Conference, taking place September 21-25, 2020. The Travel Tech APAC conference will feature expert speakers from top travel technology companies, including Lybra, Amadeus, SiteMinder, ReviewPro, eRevMax and many others.

The Travel Tech APAC conference was created to bring focus to the importance of operational technology to support hotels’ success – especially in a down market, as we are currently experiencing, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The conferences were designed to bring together international travel technology companies and hoteliers from around the world for online networking opportunities. Finally, the Travel Tech APAC conference aims to create a forum for discussion and sharing of expertise from top travel technology experts to hoteliers, who are struggling to survive the effects of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

“There are benefits for hotels in investing in operational technology today, to establish a strong foundation for a better financial future,” said Vinicius Geraldo, CEO of HS LATAM and Founder of Travel Tech. “Today, hoteliers are facing brand-new, never-before-seen market conditions and all types of operational technologies – be it revenue management, property management, channel management, rate shopping, etc. – are must-haves for hotels to maintain a competitive advantage today and into the future, no matter how the pandemic affects demand.”

“Because demand is at an all-time low, revenue management is an especially challenging part of operations for hoteliers who aren’t using technology to make pricing decisions,” said Fulvio Giannetti, CEO of Lybra and one of the expert speakers on Day 1 of the conference, which focuses on optimizing revenue. “Even for hoteliers already using an RMS, the unprecedented lack of demand makes all historical data useless and, unfortunately, the majority of traditional RMS rely predominantly on historical data to predict room rates. That means that traditional revenue management strategies and technologies have become obsolete and so, hoteliers need to prepare for the challenging, highly competitive ‘new normal’ of the post-pandemic travel industry.”

The conference is organized with one panel presentation on a specific topic, each day of the conference. Sessions include:

SEPTEMBER 21, 2020: New Tools & Trends for Hotel Revenue & Distribution Optimization

SEPTEMBER 22, 2020: Tech Trends + Innovations for Hotels – The Future of Travel & the Role of Technology

SEPTEMBER 23, 2020: Online Sales Trends for the Coming Years – Hotel Marketing

SEPTEMBER 24, 2020: Automation vs. Human Touch: The Impact on Operations & Customer Experience

SEPTEMBER 25, 2020: Digital Marketing Trends to Increase Revenue & Reservations
