By Questex Hospitality Group

Bangkok, Thailand (25 June 2018) – Organized by Questex Hospitality Group, the Hotel Management Thailand Summit (HMT) 2018 has attracted international speakers and delegates to further discuss everything operational, commercial, and management in the hotel industry.

HMT concluded on 7 June 2018 with over 160 participants in attendance at the JW Marriott Hotel Bangkok.

This year, delegates heard from veteran hoteliers and subject matter experts on the following topics in a closed-door forum: Rethinking the Revenue growth Strategies in Competitive Environment; Technology Trends in Hospitality; Leveraging Dynamic Pricing Strategies to Combat Rate Imparity; Diversifying and Growing the Source Markets: Conquering the New Frontiers; Exploring the Latest F&B Trends amidst the Changing Fine & Casual Dining Scenes; Securing Owner Approval and Capital Investment for Renovations and Upgrades; and, a Hot Debate: How will Blockchain Technology Enable Distribution and Loyalty?

Delegates were encouraged to send in questions via an online platform, and the questions raised include: “Would a city wide minimum price agreement between the hotels work?; Is it a sales, marketing or distribution strategy to help focus on diversification of our source markets? Or is it a comprehensive strategy including operations; What would be your suggestion in making Chinese and Asian guests to spend more on hotel services?”

Panelist Tracy Dong, Lead Advisor – Asia Pacific, IDeaS – A SAS Company in “Leveraging Dynamic Pricing Strategies to Combat Rate Imparity” says her two takeaways from her experience on stage are: Asset is not only the property value but the talents who make it a success; and, Technology is the future. Leveraging on the pricing competitive is advantageous to win the battle.
