Hotel Analyst, the event's organiser, again links its investment market background with the digital disruption taking place in the industry.  


Andrew Sangster explains what the event is all about

2017 will be The Hotel Distribution Event’s fifth year. The event focuses on the strategy rather than the tactics of hotel distribution.

The debates and presentations will focus on what should be done rather than the technical details of how it is done.

“We bring together the investment community and digital community and digital disruptors with hotel owners and hotel brands to give a unique insight into what is going on in the hotel industry. This is not yet another digital travel conference, this is an event focused on what needs to be understood by business leaders and investors about the digital transformation of hotels,” said Hotel Analyst’s Andrew Sangster.
