Hotel online distribution specialist eRevMax will bring an Asian twist to the mega travel tradeshow, ITB Berlin, next month. The company will be hosting its signature TigerTime sessions with an interesting mix of major Asian OTAs. The aim of the sessions is to provide hotels with valuable insights into how to capture their fair share of bookings in these emerging markets from the key online distribution players in the region.
Travel research study shows there is willingness to self-manage/book travel via the web among Asian travellers with 46% saying they mainly make their own travel arrangements, including hotel bookings, online. This provides a ready market for hoteliers wanting to reach out to a newer client base through these leading demand channels in Asia. Agoda, Rakuten Travel and Wotif.com, all part of the eRevMax Channel Ecosystem, will be presenting at TigerTime during ITB Berlin.
The TigerTime sessions will be held at eRevMax Stand 132 in Hall 8.1 and are scheduled on the first 2 days of the event. Agoda, one of the fastest-growing online hotel platforms worldwide, will share distribution insights on Wednesday 5th March from 3pm; Rakuten Travel, Japan’s largest online hotel reservation website with over 1.8 million room nights booked per month will present its value proposition on Thursday 6th March at 11am. This will be followed by a presentation by Wotif.com, a leading Australian travel website for accommodation, flights and packages, at 3pm on the same day.
The sessions will have short 15 minute presentation where these channel partners will talk about their unique value propositions and how hoteliers can benefit from advanced XML connectivity. The presentations will be followed by refreshments and a networking opportunity.
