Revenue summit an “overwhelming success”

The APAC Revenue Management Summit was held at Rydges Melbourne last week and was an overwhelming success.

Delegate and partner numbers increased on the previous years and the Summit saw over 220 delegates united in the common goal of sharing knowledge.

Headlined ‘Unite and Prosper’, the summit was planned and hosted by the Australian Revenue Management Association (ARMA) in support with the Accommodation Association of Australia (AAoA), Tourism Industry Aotearoa (TIA) and the Caravan and Camping Industry Association NSW (CCIA NSW).

The Summit again featured the Connect program encouraging delegate engagement with partners; this also enabled them to enter the major prize draw, which was courtesy of P&O Australia.

Once again, ARMA used revenue management practices when pricing its Summit, offering flexible pricing based around the varied needs of delegates.

This allowed ARMA to maximise demand for the event from a strong mix of local, interstate and international delegates representing a diverse range of accommodation models across our industry.

This event would not have been possible without the support of our platinum partners – Sabre Hospitality Solutions, IDeaS Revenue Solutions, Expedia Group and STAAH.

ARMA would like to thank all our valued partners with special mention to our Lanyard Partner HotelsCombined, Networking Partners Allotz and RateGain and Media Partners accomnews and HM.

The APAC Revenue Management Summit will return again in 2019.

Some testimonials from this year’s event:

“Congratulations on an amazing event. So many revman leaders and tourism organisations in one space all working collaboratively together. Great ethos and lovely to be a part of.”

“A big congratulations on a superbly executed event, Melissa. The warmth and spirit of the revenue management community was in full flight.”

“Without question a standout event in this region, an all-round first class conference that delivers unique and inspiring content surrounded by wonderful industry professionals.”
