No Vacancy is where accommodation meets the internet and has been held annually since 2007.
It brings together hoteliers, online travel agents, sales/marketing experts, suppliers and tech providers.
This year’s conference theme is Balancing Act – a reflection of the increasingly complicated nature of the accommodation business, where there’s no such thing as black and white and it’s impossible to keep all stakeholders happy.
Following an opening keynote from Rachel Argaman, the program moves through key issues confronting accommodation professionals such as distribution, marketing, innovation, consumers and technology, plus the latest performance data.
It will also drill down into both the economy and luxury segments, and feature exclusive case studies on the recent Hostelworld.com brouhaha and also the innovative online approach taken by HotelClub and Orbitz.
Bookings are tracking well and a crowd of 200+ is expected.
No Vacancy is known for tightly focused and moderated programs packed with issues, opinions, panels, presentations and debate.
Tickets cost $549 + gst and all information can be found at www.traveltrends.biz.
