Host: HSMAI Americas
New Orleans, LA
To be successful in hotels today, a revenue management leader must master many roles: analyst, strategist, tactician, communicator, thought leader, team builder, data advocate, distribution specialist, digital marketer, and more.
The 2016 Revenue Optimization Conference will deliver the insights and expertise you need to develop these skills and talents in yourself and your team while maintaining a focus on the core of the profession: Optimizing Revenue.
For thirteen years, HSMAI’s Revenue Optimization Conference (ROC) has been the place where hotel revenue leaders unite for education, collaboration and innovation. Annually, this conference delivers the most compelling and comprehensive revenue management event for the hotel industry, and convenes more than 500 key stakeholders to address the most critical trends affecting revenue management in hotels today. With powerful educational and networking opportunities, this is the can’t-miss conference of the year for learning and engagement.
Attend this event if you are responsible for leading revenue optimization and pricing for a brand, management company, ownership group, hotel, or resort. ROC is also of interest to partner companies serving the revenue management industry, including consultants, technology vendors and companies providing products and services in revenue management, execution, and reporting.
The conference is organized by HSMAI’s Revenue Management Advisory Board.
ROC will be on Wednesday (not Monday as has been the tradition)
The move to Wednesday not only gives your Sunday back to you, but allows HSMAI to offer several pre-ROC programs to increase your education and networking opportunities.
Tuesday is filled with opportunities to learn and network
Fifteen breakout session organized in 3 tracks
Three options will be offered during each block of breakout sessions and will be organized into Leadership, Distribution, and Best Practices tracks.
