Contribution to strengthening the hotel industry: HotelPartner Revenue Management as a partner of the Hospitality Summit 2023

With the support of the “Hotelier of the Year” Switzerland, the company underscores its active commitment to the hotel industry, promoting outstanding achievements in the field.

Under the motto “Shaping the Future Together,” Hotellerie Suisse once again organised the Hospitality Summit in Zurich. Approximately 1,300 participants gathered to stay updated on industry developments and select from an extensive program of talks over two days. Renowned experts provided insights and solutions for current challenges. Within this event, the coveted “Hotelier of the Year” award for Switzerland is presented annually. In 2023, Rainer M. Willa, CEO of HotelPartner Revenue Management, had the honour of presenting the award to Christian Eckert, Managing Director of The Omnia Mountain Resort in Zermatt. This award recognises exceptional leadership, innovation, and success in the hotel industry.

In addition to the award ceremony, Rainer M. Willa joined Prof. Dr. Florian Bauer from Vocatus AG for an interview as part of the conference program. Moderator Maria Victoria Hass led the discussion, focusing on the correlation between pricing strategy and positioning. Under the title “Pricing Approaches in Practice,” the crucial connection between an effective pricing strategy and a hotel’s positioning was explored. The discussion provided valuable insights and perspectives on this pertinent topic for the hotel industry. This interview with Rainer M. Willa further underscores HotelPartner Revenue Management’s commitment to advancing the industry and sharing best practices.

At this point, Rainer M. Willa emphasizes the importance of mutual support within the hotel industry:

“It is always a great pleasure for us to be able to support such important industry events with other established partners and to contribute to the further development of the hotel industry. We remain committed to providing innovative solutions and expertise to assist hoteliers in their daily work and to help them achieve their goals. We will continue to work closely with the industry in the future so that together we can set new standards.”

Florian Augustin, Chief Commercial Officer at HotelPartner Revenue Management, provides insights into the option of outsourcing in his key note on labour shortages in the hotel industry.

Florian Augustin, a member of the management group at HotelPartner Revenue Management, also contributed expertise to the content program of the congress by giving a key note on “Labour Shortages Through Innovative Outsourcing Solutions”:

“In addition to explaining various distribution strategies, I wanted to highlight that outsourcing revenue management does not have to mean replacing employees, but rather significantly easing their day-to-day operations in the operational hotel business.” Florian Augustin’s lecture also helped to advance the discussion on solutions for labor shortages in the hotel industry and provided new food for thought.

The sponsorship of the ‘Hotelier of the Year 2023’ and the ‘Hospitality Summit 2023’ by HotelPartner Revenue Management illustrates the company’s comprehensive commitment to the promotion and support of the hotel industry. HotelPartner Revenue Management itself offers innovative solutions for revenue management and pricing strategies. The company collaborates with leading hotels and hotel groups, assisting them in maximising revenue and profits while reducing costs.
