Direct Booking Summit 2017 - Agenda and Speakers Announced!

The Direct Booking Summit is back.

DBS 2016 launched a movement, and now we're picking up where we left off. On 27th & 28th September in New York and 18th & 19th October in Barcelona, we'll be bringing the world's hoteliers together to talk tactics, challenges, and everything in between.

Some agenda highlights for you:

  • Content marketing, and how to nail it
  • Direct Booking strategies - unleashed
  • The Priceline/Expedia duopoly and what we can do about it
  • Driving direct with data
  • Humanizing the online experience
  • Cracking the code of buyer behaviour
