The series will kick off in Europe, with a two-day conference in Amsterdam on June 27 and 28, 2018.
Dallas will then host the Americas leg on September 19 and 20, 2018. Finally, the first Direct Booking Summit: Asia-Pacific will take place in Singapore in early 2019*.
In just two years the Direct Booking Summit has become one of the industry’s must-attend events. It brings together hundreds of hoteliers, from savvy independents to those from world-leading brands, to strategise, network and drive the Direct Booking Movement forward.
Previous speakers and delegates have come from Hyatt, The Leading Hotels of the World, Deutsche Hospitality, Kempinski Hotels, trivago, Kalibri Labs, McKinsey Company, ReviewPro, The Guestbook and Mirai.
Julissa Quiroz, of the Fortune House Hotel, Miami, attended last year’s Direct Booking Summit in New York and said: “We loved everything! We had two very productive days, we are definitely implementing new strategies and ideas at our property to maximise guest satisfaction and hotel revenue.”
Summit chairman and Triptease Chief Tease, Charlie Osmond, added: “This is the event for any hotelier who cares about growing revenue and perfecting guest experience. Every summit we hear from hoteliers trying unique and daring things, whether it be using FaceTime to connect with older guests or standing up to wayward wholesalers. It’s a huge source of inspiration and I can’t wait to see what emerges from this bigger and bolder summit series.”

About the Direct Booking Summit
The Direct Booking Summit has one mission: to help hotels increase direct bookings. The closed-door event for hoteliers and their friends is a place to learn from experts and peers, share best practices and set the agenda for the industry. In 2017, nearly 430 people attended the summit series and its 49 talks, panels and workshops.
Triptease creates digital tools that help hotels build stronger relationships with guests and increase direct bookings. Its Direct Booking Platform: Ilio Edition comprises Price Check, the original price comparison widget for hotels, Disparity Dungeon, a real-time log of incidences of undercutting, Message Porter, a campaign manager that creates and delivers tailored messages to customers, and Front Desk, a live chat service designed specifically for hotels. The company is headquartered in London but has growing offices in New York and Singapore.
