WASHINGTON—Hotel industry innovators and thought leaders will converge on Washington, DC, for the fifth annual Revenue Strategy Summit (RSS) on July 26. The annual event examines the forces reshaping the hospitality industry and how marketing and technology can evolve to meet these new challenges. RSS 2017 will be held at the Renaissance Washington, D.C. Downtown Hotel.
“Now for five years running, RSS has become the undisputed laboratory for new ideas shaping the future of hospitality,” said Patrick Bosworth, CEO of Duetto. “As the hotel industry experiences even more accelerated change, it’s critical that we continue to bring innovation forward, testing assumptions and helping develop revenue strategies to support hotel owners, asset managers and management companies.”
RSS combines education, networking and high-level information exchange among an anticipated group of more than 300 hotel executives from brands, ownership groups, asset managers, management companies and respected industry leaders who are responsible for increasing revenue and optimizing demand.
“With the rise of aggregators in the digital marketplace challenging hotel profitability, the industry must find new ways to evaluate and manage its revenue performance,” said Cindy Estis Green, CEO and cofounder of Kalibri Labs LLC. “RSS is an indispensable lifeline into the latest techniques for doing just that: helping hoteliers combat the rising cost of third parties that are involved in selling rooms, threatening market share and disrupting the all-important customer relationship. Attendees at RSS 2017 will get a glimpse into the future of the distribution landscape, while getting insight into new business models and techniques for improving profit contribution.”
Stacy Silver, president of Silver Hospitality Group, added: “RSS is unique among industry events because of its focus on the intersection of technology and innovation. It’s a must-attend event for all hotel professionals interested in practical solutions to the most important challenges facing hoteliers now and in the future.”
Registration for RSS 2017 is now open.
