The new year is in full swing, and it’s bringing fresh new opportunities and challenges for hoteliers with it. So, what’s on the hotel-industry horizon? And how can independent hoteliers prepare to embrace these new opportunities and take on these new challenges?
Last week we revealed the top hotel trends to watch in 2018. In anticipation of growth in facilitated direct bookings with metasearch and more stress on online reputation management, our team of Industry Managers has organized a series of webinars to help hoteliers find success this year with marketing their hotels and competing online.
Whether your goal for 2018 is to attract more guests to your hotel, drive more direct bookings, or simply run your property more efficiently, you’ve come to the right place.
By catching up on the latest trends and brushing up on your knowledge, you’ll be well prepared to navigate your hotel business to a successful year. With trivago webinars, you can do this from anywhere in the world.
