Getting Ready for the 2019 Hotel Sourcing Season

What should buyers and suppliers be looking for as we face another hotel sourcing season? What can we expect for price changes? Are alternatives to the traditional hotel sourcing model viable? Are there ways to avoid some of the time and effort of this annual exercise? These and other topics associated with the hotel procurement process will be reviewed and discussed in an interactive combination presentation and learning event.
