Hotel Revenue Management Services:

There is a tremendous need in the public sector for Facilities and Conference Services. But with a fragmented marketplace and no proven market leader, it can be difficult for hotels to forecast sector revenue. Plus, with changes to the SAM that restrict contract fulfillment, increased risk with BPOs and competition for space, having the right public sector strategies in place are key to success.

Invested Traveler offers a webinar-based training to share proven strategies that can help your property:

  • Be the dominate player in the markets you serve
  • Position your team to be top of mind during market research phase
  • Better protect your pricing and margins while remaining competitive
  • Finding greater success through Teaming practices

What our hotel partners are saying:

“The Hotel Fullerton is grateful for the partnership we’ve established with the team at Invested Traveler. They have placed Meetings that include catering and lodging at our property that help us get even closer to our sales goals. They’ve really gotten to know our property which makes it easier for me to plan and communicate the needs of the client to our in-house catering and A/V team. Since our team is focused on the day-to-day with limited time for government contract sales, working with Invested Traveler has proven especially beneficial to our business.
