Programme highlights

The Hotel Distribution Event 2016 offers a roster of the leading opinion formers in the hotel technology sector. Hot topics this year include:
  •        Retail or product (or both)?
  •        Regulation of the sharing economy
  •        Advertising power
  •        Breaking out of internal silos within hotel companies
  •        Travel Management Companies
  •        Global chains versus mid-sized and national groups
This year's event is to focus on the disruption and increasing desperation of distribution. 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

2016 will be The Hotel Distribution Event’s fourth 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.
