Hotelbeds MarketHub Americas

Written by  Roquita Johnson

GEDC2589 Hotelbeds, the top global business-to-business bedbank, recently hosted its 6th annual MarketHub Americas trade forum.  Over 600 travel suppliers and distributors from the main sectors of the American travel industry gathered at the two-day event, held at Las Vegas’ Caesar’s Palace, for current insights on key tourism trends and updates on the Spanish-based accommodation wholesaler. 

 

Much of the discussion focused on present and future growth rates for Hotelbeds, with good news to report:  2013 saw a 20% global growth rate compared to the previous year, and the company expects to double its size in the Americas by 2019. Particular focus will be placed on further expansion in the U.S., Colombia, Mexico, Chile, Brazil and Argentina.

Marta Alvarez, sales and marketing deputy managing director, said: “We have reached €1.8 billion sales in 2013, and are achieving great global growth rates in roomnight sales…However, we have to keep on working as hard as we always do in collaboration with our partners and clients in order to maintain growth this and in the following years.”

As far as programs of interest for travel specialists, Hotelbeds’ activity and transfer bank service, and Liberate – the new hotel direct payment model – can help you meet clients’ needs better. For more information, visit www.hotelbeds.com
