Course Focus

Pricing is one of the most powerful tools a hotel can use to increase revenue. This course teaches participants how to set the right prices, develop rate fences (differentiate prices by customer type), and use multiple distribution channels to manage price more effectively.

Participants will learn about the impact of variable pricing and discounting on revenue management in the context of price elasticity, optimal price mix, perceived fairness, and congruence with positioning and sales strategies.

Channel management is an essential tool for controlling differentiated pricing, maintaining rate fences, and increasing revenue. Participants will explore various approaches to managing distribution channels including direct sales, agencies, the Internet, and opaque pricing channels.

Finally, discussions of best practices and industry case studies help extend and contextualize the learning experience. Participants use Microsoft Excel to practice pricing and distribution-channel-management techniques.
