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 online travel agents. 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 that there is willingness to self-manage/book travel via the web among Asian travellers, with 46% saying they mainly make their own travel arrangements online, including hotel bookings. 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.
