Reboot: Hospitality has been disrupted. New players, powered by technology, have come in and disintermediated the supply chain. Online travel brands are consolidating and gaining might.
The sharing economy has changed the idea of where travellers sleep and stay. Private accommodation is estimated to be a $100 billion industry. Travellers now want experiences, beyond bed and board.
How can hotel companies respond to this new, dynamic landscape?
To address some of the paradigm shifts underway in the world of travel and guest accommodation, Web In Travel, Asia Pacific’s leading content and community portal for professionals passionate about travel marketing, distribution and technology, will lead a 75-minute track at HotelsWorld 2016.
