eRevMax, the leading hospitality technology & solutions provider of channel management and connectivity solutions, RateTiger and Connect, hosted its signature TigerTime session with the major Asian OTAs at ITB Berlin. The distribution provider will share valuable insights how to capture fair share of bookings in the emerging markets from the key online distribution players in the Asia region. Asia has ousted Europe to become the world’s biggest travel market. TigerTime session will be held with major Asian OTAs Rakuten, Wotif and Agoda.
Until recently, there was very little need to ensure visibility within Asia – a continent known for their preference of more traditional ways. However, with almost half of Asian travellers now citing the web as their number one method for travel booking, there has never been a more important time for hoteliers to branch out.
Earlier this year, eRevMax hosted its signature TigerTime at the FITUR International Tourism Trade Fair in Madrid in associate with World Independent Hotel Promotion (WIHP) and Ostrovok, Russia’s largest accommodation provider. Recently eRevMax partnered with WIHP to offer metasearch services to the hotels in to help hoteliers generating more direct bookings. At stand 8B19 Martin Soler of WIHP presented how can hotels lessen their dependency on OTAs by connecting to metasearch sites.
TigerTime by eRevMax is the perfect platform for hotels and OTAs to present their value proposition to a varied set of attendees. It helps them to showcase how hoteliers and OTAs can benefitted from advanced XML connectivity and how they can reach out to the diverse client base. Apart from being a great branding exercise, this platform put them directly in touch with key decision makers who can understand the value of networking.
While WTM ended a month back, we are still recovering from its success. The TigerTime sessions we organized with leading OTAs proved to be a hit at WTM 2013. The sessions generated significant interest among the travel industry with a ‘standing room only’ turnout.
Agoda, GTA and Ostrovok – all part of the eRevMax Channel Ecosystem – delivered relevant presentations to hoteliers looking for superior connectivity, new distribution markets and updates on new technology developments.
