Pegasus Solutions hosted hoteliers at Google’s Paris location on Monday for their first joint World of Distribution seminar. The event provided a forum for representatives from Pegasus, Google, and key Parisian hotel companies to deliberate on the industry’s current and developing distribution needs.
“An exclusive gathering of Google travel specialists, area hotel executives, and our own distribution leaders was the best path forward in planning for tomorrow’s industry solutions,” said Chris Wichers, chief sales officer of Pegasus Solutions. “Hotel distribution methods need to be sustainable and evolve best practices, and do it all at a rational cost. With the best minds engaged in one room, we addressed the realities of today’s marketplace, focusing on how purchasing habits are evolving. Google’s pioneering experience predicting and shaping shopping behavior is a powerful complement to the role we play helping hotels drive business through many channels.”
Pegasus’ The World of Distribution campaign has enlightened hoteliers worldwide on the distribution landscape. In addition to the global seminar series for clients and industry experts, Pegasus’ World of Distribution explanatory videos on www.pegs.com illustrate the basics of a sound distribution strategy, walking hotels through understanding and joining The World of Distribution.
